With a torturous past dating back to Roman times, York is hailed as the most haunted city in Europe. The pubs have poltergeists, the hotels are haunted and there’s even a spook in a supermarket. From 26-31 October there are 26 Ghost Lamps as well as hundreds of hidden Mini Ghosts to be found. We need your help to find them. Come and explore our haunted city for yourself and be among the first to take part in The Great York Ghost Search... Grab a map from the Visitor Information Centre and dare to discover 26 Ghost Lamps located in shop windows on some of York’s most atmospheric streets. Each Ghost Lamp is named from A-Z and is personalised by a different local artist or designer. Write the name of each ghost on the spotters’ list on the reverse of the map but shhh – this is a secret expedition so keep your findings to yourself.

If you record all the names, fill out your details on the entry form and post it into the special Ghost Box at the Visit York Information Centre for a chance to win a fantastic prize provided by York’s own Acomb Travel. You can search for the lamps anytime, but we recommend going between 5-7pm as twilight falls. Mini Ghosts… Search on the Mini Ghosts snickleways to try and find your very own fearsome figure. Each evening from 4 - 7pm there will be 50 mini ghosts hiding in York’s shadowy corners and crevices, some with extra special decoration. If you are lucky enough to find a mini ghost, we politely ask that searchers limit their collection to just one per person. Don’t despair, those not lucky enough to find one, a limited number will be available to purchase at the Visitor Information Centre shop, all proceeds will go to charity. Each Mini Ghost has its own number so why not share your find #greatyorkghostsearch
