This is a fairly new addition to Newcastle: the ghost tour. Perhaps capitalising on the ‘screaming’ success of Living TV’s ‘Most Haunted’, this spooky event combines the weirdest history with the wildest stories and wickedest humour around. Best of all, the Ghost Walk has access to the some of the city's most haunted places: Tynemouth Priory, Washington Old Hall, Denton Hall, Castle Keep. Not for the faint hearted or those of a nervous disposition (or even those who have recently lost partners or loved-one to murderous highwayman plots) but gravely entertaining nonetheless. An encounter with the poltergeist is of the highlights of the tour, with people claiming to have been attacked by the enitity, chased and attacked by a ghost on horse, followed by dogs howling into the night sky.
A careful blend of fascinating history and distinctive humour, culminating in a genuinely terrifying experience has made Castle Keep ghost walk a unique experience in entertainment. No unaccompanied children. Insert tongue-in-cheek health-warning here.
