Ghostly goings on

Last weekend was brilliant: it wasn’t particularly relaxing, but I had a great time nonetheless.

On Friday night I attended the Norwich Ghost Walk, Hallowe’en special. For many moons I have discussed the relative merits of taking a Ghost Walk, but never quite managed it! This year I was determined to make the time though – so as the rain poured down on Friday night, I wrapped myself up and headed to the Adam and Eve for the 9.30 walk, quite prepared to be scared to death.

And to be honest, at some points I was, especially when ghosts and monsters jumped out of bushes! The Man in Black told some sinister ghost stories too, which were accompanied with a heavy dose of am-dram (brilliant fun).

It wasn’t quite what I had imagined though – more than 100 people turned up (probably because it was Hallowe’en weekend) and it wasn’t so much a walk around the City as a walk around a park, but it was still good fun.

I would also have preferred it if the ghost stories focussed more on Norwich, but I guess that’s what you get on a regular ghost walk – I will have to make provision for that next year.

Tickets for the Norwich Ghost Walk cost £6 and are available from Chenery Travel on Castle Meadow.

The walks stop at the end of November – more details available here.

Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
