From Our Editors

The Ghost Creeper is instantly recognisable by his top hat and Dickensian overcoat. Played by performer Gary Goldthorpe, the Creeper is a storyteller who frequently spooks audiences with new stories and facts. He takes visitors on an 75-minute tour through York, setting off at 7.30 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Coppergate Walk, outside Jorvik Viking Centre. Private group bookings can be arranged for alternative times.

Good bit of light hearted entertainment. Ghost Creeper very knowledgeable & quite a character. Great way to visit key places in the city.

Enjoyed the walk on an eerily quiet night. The creeper mixed information and humour in a we'll balanced way and did well despite the low(6) turnout

Professional, entertaining, worth every penny. Took about 2hours but I think this may vary depending of the crowd. Sarcastic - but in a good way. Interacted with the crowd. Suitable to children which he kept interested and involved. Wrap up warm.

The Ghost creeper is a very entertaining guy. Kept the whole group entertained for the duration of the tour. My son really enjoyed the tour.

The Ghost Creeper's tour was injected with a touch of theatrical humour along with the interesting facts about the ghostly history of lovely York, and encouraged audience participation. Was quite fast-paced walking at times though and whilst not an issue for us, it could be difficult for some to keep up.

Good length of walk. Good historical info and story detail.A nice finish at La Cremeria (best ice cream ever!) with discount. Overall an excellent job.

His introduction was - It might be expected that we get things thrown or shouted at us...due to a court case over a 15 year old girl that was resolved on Wednesday! When researching this..it has not been resolved yet and felt pretty disgusted that he is still allowed to take this tour. Is he even DBS checked!? Very disappointed as this was a gift that turned out to be awkward and embarrassing.
