For Halloween itself we're going all out with the most grisly and gruesome stories from the cities dark history - you do not want to miss it!

There are two distinct routes, one around the Norton / Graves Park area of Sheffield, taking in the infamous Bunting Nook, whilst the other takes in the city centre.

This city centre walk is a circular route starting and ending on Tudor Square at the side of Sheffield Central Library, is a little over a mile long, and is fully wheelchair / mobility scooter accessible.

From the venue of an old Victorian autopsy theatre to the sight of a more recent tragedy, it’s going to be packed full of great stories, including the unlikely origin of a very Sheffield swear word, plus on top of that? We even take a trip to Paradise and experience the heart of Old Sheffield.

The other walk is also a circular route starting and ending on the public footpath outside St James Church at Norton S8 8JQ, is also about a mile long, and is fully wheelchair / mobility scooter accessible.

The Norton / Graves Park area of Sheffield has more than its fair share of ghosts and legends. From huge devil dogs to ghostly carriages plus it is the home to Bunting Nook. A road widely considered to be one of the most haunted in the whole of England!

Both walks are led by local author Adrian Finney, who has written several books on the paranormal, and both are fully insured.

Tickets for under 14s are available as add ons at check out and priced at just £6 each.
