Au programme

We meet outside a city Wine Bar in the historic heart of the City of canterbury, located on top of the remains of the Roman Watling street, still accessible in the cellar of Alberrys. We then take you for a gentle stroll discovering the History of the buildings, and thus the possible reasons that ghosts and witches have been seen in the city over the past 1000 or so years. We visit the accommodation of Matthew hopkins, witchfinder who came to the city in 1643 to rid the city of our unwelcome guests. We learn about the previous residents of Tiny Tims Tea rooms, and hear of sad stories of those that perished during the English Civil War and before, in a building that dates back to 1308. Then on to St Margaret's Church to hear about the fate of Vandals in the 1970's who found the curse of the toombs.
Around the corner we discover what happened to a Woman being beaten by her spouse, and how she got her revenge on him, and the demise of her child some years later. His faint footsteps are heard to this day on the stairwell. We discover the Roman Fish Market with its links to Oyster from Whitstable, then on to Mercery Lane, to see the Devils in the Detail, and the Plague Markers. No night time visit would be complete without a visit to the Gates of the cathedral and hear what security staff come across on a nightly basis, and recreate the Death of Saint Thomas of Canterbury & more.

I have been conducting Ghost Tours in Canterbury since 1991, and have welcomed many thousands of guests from all over the globe in that time. When I left Oxford University in the 1980's I worked briefly in Canterbury Cathedral Archives and there learned the locations of most of the properties in the city that have been exorcised and many that were too haunted to be touched. I wrote a comprehensive guide to the Ghosts and Haunting in the City and Published "Haunted Canterbury", in 2006, it is still a solid seller on both Amazon and in the local bookshops.
The Tour is an entertaining mix of History, Humour and Hauntings, tours are available all year and in all weathers - I never cancel for rain as it goes right through ghosts. I look forward to meeting you soon, we may even see a ghost.

A brilliantly funny experience - our host John was very witty and knowledgeable. A good amount of spooky and gruesome facts were thrown in, with some interesting insight as to where lots of old English sayings came from! My partner and I really enjoyed this, and would recommend to anyone visiting. Thanks John!

Myself and my 2 teens 15 and 17 enjoyed the ghost walk very much. He had the teenagers in fits of laughter and remembered where we call came from and what we did so he could incorporate it into his stories.

The tour was wonderful - really unique stories about haunted buildings and ghosts, told in an absolutely hilarious style! Very entertaining and I enjoyed it for sure!

Really enjoyable experience, John really knew his stuff and was really engaging with the topic. Absolutely wicked sense of humour and he did everything he could to counteract some of the locals who seemed hell bent on letting our group know they had learned some new syllables. Obviously John couldn't help this as it was a Saturday night and some people really can't handle their drink (the tour went from 8pm to 9:30pm and there were groups who were genuinely fall over drunk before we had even finished...embarrassing). All of this aside it was a really enjoyable and informative tour and I would recommend it for anyone who has a good sense of humour and is interested in some of the more sinister aspects of our national history.

Our Ghost Tour with John was amazing! He kept a variety of age groups entertained with his stories and showmanship. We only regret that our son was burned at the stake for being a witch. (Just kidding)

An excellent time was had by all. A Unique and comical evening thanks to the fast wit and humour of John. If you are visiting Canterbury then I would recommend booking The Ghost Tour.
