About the event

Chester has 2000 years of history from the Romans to the Beatles.  It has witnessed plague, pestilence, and prosperity.  This walking tour is a dark-tourism romp through the city’s history, focusing on the macabre, grisly, and ghostly. From plague doctors to heads on spikes over Eastgate, via ghostly goings-on at Chester’s former gallows, Green Badge Guide David Atkinson delves into the shadows to reveal tales from Chester’s dark side.

Ticket sales will open for this event at the end of May. 

Please note the walk does include steps.
