Liverpool Ghost Walks, founded in February 2008, are not for the faint hearted!
The tours offer a unique experience, revealing the dark side of the city to both
Liverpool residents and visitors alike.
Ghost Walks are based on the works of best selling author, Tom Slemen. The costumed
Guides bring Tom's ghost stories to life in very the locations where they
happened. Haunted Liverpool is the only tour fully endorsed by Tom Slemen, who
says on his website, "Save an animal's life. Go on a Haunted Liverpool
profits from the walks go to local charity Freshfields Animal Rescue.
Liverpool Ghost Walks offer the opportunity to take part in a scary Ghost Tour
with a short Ghost Hunt at the end of the Tour. With professional actors and
trained marshals, the Ghost Walk is designed to send chills down the spines of
those brave enough to take part. Haunted Liverpool Ghost Walks are suitable for
adults and children over the age of 12.
St James's Cemetery ghost walk starts from Peter Kavanagh's Pub, Egerton Street
in Liverpool's Georgian Quarter. It runs on Thursday and Sunday evenings; pre-booking
is required. The walk winds its way to St James's Gothic cemetery, a dormitory
of the deceased with 58, 000 bodies buried underfoot, where a short Ghost Hunt
with EMF meters is included at the end of the Tour. Full instructions will be
given on the night.
