Its been many years since we hosted family ghost walk but the spooky big wigs in the head office decided it was time as Newcastle is changing to a more family friendly city with plenty to do for the whole family. So myself and the creators here at Haunted City Tours and Alone In The Dark Entertainment came up with a brand new Newcastle Ghost Walking family adventure for the whole clan which we have called Wicked Newcastle. This is a gruesome ghostly history walk with a big dose of education hidden behind a professional actor and story teller David Marshall who brings to life the twisted but fun history of Newcastle with use of the childhood imagination and lots of fun and frights this tour has it all. Davids caricature is that of one of Newcastle and Gateshead's old felons, a Highway Robber by the name of William Long.
This fantastic tour starts at 4 pm which is ideal if you have had a day of shopping and need to fill time before you and the family head out for tea later that night at one of Newcastle's spooky and historical restaurants or bars. Its a perfect time to see the city.
Wicked Newcastle a Family Ghost Walk runs for 60 minutes and takes in the sites of the Newcastle Castle and its bloody civil war with the Scots, hear of what life was like locked in the Newcastle jail and see the medieval old dungeons at the very haunted Black Gate and the evil Herrons pit execution site where many were thrown down into a dungeon before been displayed in cages after that, been covered in tar and even beheaded, hung and tortured, see the old draw bridge and portcullis along with the guards rooms, see the sites of the Roman commandeers fortress, hear of the Newcastle witches as we put mum on trial as a witch or when we put dad in the drunken barrel. Discover a hidden world inside Newcastle historical area on this outdoor walking tour, from pirates to witches, ghostly knights to highway robbers, Wicked Newcastle has it all.
