Ghost Walks

by ktgibbons

somwe friends and are are visiting York this weekend and want to do one of the ghost walks. Can any one recommend which one to do/which is the best as there seem to be quite a few of them compared to a few years ago.

I'm also trying to remember a restaurant/bistro I visited in york about 5 years ago, think it was a cafe by day and small bistro in the evenings. It was fairly close to the Minster and at the time had sheet music on the walls as a kind of wall paper. Not a very good description I know but the food was fantastic and we want to go again this weekend.

Thanks KAren

Re: Ghost Walks

by JohnHarper

I know this reply is a year late but here goes anyway!

The Cafe/Bistro will be the Cafe Concerto in Petergate.

As for ghost walks probably the best one used to be the one run by Trevor Rooney, however he sold up a couple of years ago and went off to Australia. That particcular walk seemed to lose it's character and does not attract the crowds that Trevor used to attract. I saw him back in town recently but don't know if he plans to start another ghost walk or whether he ahs some other Looney Rooney entertainment in mind to entertain tourists.

Travel Tips for York

This is a must see city,...

by ejroberts

This is a must see city, especially if you are heading North to Edinburgh. It is a city rich in history, with interesting museums, nice restaurants and convenient B&B's. It is an old city that lets you step back in time to an earlier age.

Richard III Museum

by sandysmith

Monk Bar houses the Richard III museum.
Richard III was King of England for just 26 months (1483-85) and is said to have committed numerous brutal murders - notably his two nephews, Edward Prince of Wales (the uncrowned Edward V), and Richard Duke of York, the so-called PRINCES IN THE TOWER. The museum provides an entertaining look at such controversies.

Pour quickly into the tin and bak at 170 degr. Celsius for 50 min. or until firm in centre. The cake will sink in centre as it cools. Keeps well.

Jazz nights at the Black Swan

by GlobalSoul

Not too-well known amongst the locals, and I don't think too well-known with tourists either, are jazz nights at the Black Swan. A very intimate venue with a live jazz band and plenty of audience interaction - ideal for the jazz-lover! The Black Swan itself is a pub dating back to the 1500s-1600s. Grab a drink at the bar, and head up the authentically uneven stairs leading up to the tiny room where the jazz is performed! The band is friendly, and in the second hour, after the intermission, audience participation is invited! Jazz is Wednesday and Sunday nights, and they have folk nights as well, on Tuesday and possibly another night as well. Admission is free, although an optional donation is collected at intermission, usually through the sale of raffle tickets for a small raffle prize draw. Jazz starts at 9, but arrive early to be sure of a seat, as it does sometimes get very full, resulting in audience crowding into the corridor outside! Song requests are taken too. The Black Swan is on Peasholme Green, on the edge of the city centre (but still very much within walking distance!)

Castle Howard - This...

by Raquelle

Castle Howard - This castle/stately home was built in 1699. It is still owned and run by the Howard family. It is located 15 miles northeast of York. Admission is #8 GBP per adult.
This is a beautiful house and gardens which are well worth a visit. The only down side we experienced was that you can only view the house on an escorted tour. We only had to wait a few minutes for the next tour to start but we still would of prefered to go round in our own time.
