What else is on?

Head on the spookiest ghost walk in Cambridge with your family with Terrible Tours, if you dare... 

What do you get if you take 2000 years of history, add lashings of ancient buildings, and mix in some of the world’s most colourful characters? A city that’s ‘alive’ with ghosts – that’s what!

Meet the victims of horrific punishments, see the hangman’s house, visit one of the most haunted roads in England, and hear the chilling tales of phantom Fellows and spooky Scholars that haunt the city.

On this tour, you will visit the following locations: 

  • Magdalene Bridge - a crossroads since before England existed and site of a 'ducking stool' for witches
  • Sidney Sussex - The resting place of Oliver Cromwell - well, a bit of him at least, and maybe not resting as such...
  • Trinity Lane - home to some famous rakes and occultists - including Lord Byron and 'the Beast' Aleister Crowley
  • Clare College - The home of the original 'skeleton in the cupboard'
  • Market Square - Home to lovely streetfood now, but 500 years ago it was a different meat burning....
  • Benet Street - The oldest building in Cambridge, opposite a pub whose lease states a particular window must always be open because of the suffocating feeling all customers experience when its ghosts are trapped inside
  • Trumpington Street - Home of some famous ghosts, including a Master of the college and another famous cupboard!
  • Little St Mary's Lane - the most haunted road in Cambridge, if not England, with several ghosts living in its pretty cottages, as well as being known for sightings of Anglia's famous 'Black Shuck', the inspiration for 'The Hound of The Baskervilles'

Enjoy a Cambridge day out like never before in a spook-tastic tour for families today! Want a look at the bigger picture of Cambridge? Take a look at the Curious Cambridge Tour
