Who’s up for some ghastly, ghostly fun in the run up to Halloween?

Tales of “scandal, death and horror” on Ely’s medieval streets will be the focus of a new series of ghost walks and tours, starting this Thursday (October 19).

Back by popular demand, the fright night forays will allow those who dare to “meet some of the ghosts that reside within our medieval city”.

The Night Watchman will lead visitors through Ely by twilight, exploring “hidden horrors, terrifying tales and things that go bump in the dark”.

The trips are not for the faint-hearted.

Dare devils are also invited to explore Oliver Cromwell’s House after dark.

A guide will lead visitors through this atmospheric house, recounting haunted tales that have been collected over many years from former inhabitants, visitors and staff.

Tracey Harding, tourism and town centres manager at East Cambridgeshire District Council said: “Building on the success of previous years, we have extended this year’s ghost season.

“We hope that with the variety of tours available there will be something for everyone and leave visitors with some great memorable experiences”.

Tickets for Eerie Ely Ghost Walks and the City of Ely Ghost Tour must be pre-booked and are now on sale for a variety of dates in October.

For bookings, please call 01353 662062 or visit the Oliver Cromwell’s House website and Facebook page.
