Oxford will be full of extra ghostly goings-on as scary Halloween ghost tours reveal the city’s spooky secrets.
To celebrate Halloween, The Oxford Ghost Tour will deliver a series of scary interactive experiences in the city’s most haunted streets. It will be hosted by a professional actor in an authentic cavalier outfit.
Launched last year by City Sightseeing Oxford, owned by Oxford Bus Company, the walking tour takes visitors through the most haunted and historic parts of Oxford city centre.
Guests will be treated to terrifying stories of gruesome deaths, hauntings and executions and might even see some ghosts too amid Oxford’s eerie narrow streets.
The tours will run on 28, 29 and 30 October and every Friday and Saturday in November, starting at 5.30pm from the City Sightseeing Oxford Visitor Information Point on the High Street.
To celebrate Halloween even better, City Sightseeing Oxford will run a special event at the Visitor Information Point.
From Friday afternoon until Monday, 31 October, children visiting the location will be greeted by colleagues in Halloween outfits and treated to a sweet treat. There will also be a spooky cut-out board for those fun pictures.
Clarisse Garcia, Retail and Tourism Manager at City Sightseeing Oxford, said: “The Oxford Ghost Tours have proved to be incredibly popular and to help make Halloween even more spooky in the city we’re providing three new tours dates and we’ll continue to operate the tours in November.”
Luke Marion, Interim Managing Director of Oxford Bus Company, said: “We regularly look at ways to improve what we can offer to attract people to visit Oxford.
“The ghost tour was originally launched as part of our diversification strategy and it’s fantastic to see go from strength to strength. Halloween is the ideal time to enjoy the Oxford Ghost Tour and experience the history and atmosphere of the city.”
Children must be accompanied by an adult on The Oxford Ghost Tour, and tickets are available for adults, children, a family, two adults, two students, students and seniors from The Oxford Ghost Tour website.
