Ghost Walk

MoN, Tue, Wed, Thur 6:45pm

During Derby Signfest we have two different Ghost Walks.


Walk 1 - City Centre Ghost Tour

Meet at 6:45pm, look around the Cornmarket, the Fish Market, and two famous haunted pubs. You'll learn a lot of interesting information you didn’t know and now when you walk around the City Centre you will look around for the ghosts. The walk lasts approximately 3 hours altogether and will finish about 10pm/10:30pm, you will be provided a supper of jacket potato with cheese/beans. Monday 9 September & Wednesday 11 September

Walk 2 - Friargate Ghost Tour

The second tour will be on Tuesday 10 & Thursday 12 September. This tour is around Friargate, you will look around Derby Goal which used to be 2 to 3 different jails. We will look around Vernon gate, where there used to be lots of hangings, don’t worry you won’t see any. It’s close to the old Friargate School, so maybe we have some Deaf ghosts, come with us to find out. The same as the first walk, we meet at 6:45pm and finish at approximately 10pm/10:30pm. You will be provided a supper of jacket potato with cheese/beans.


Both tours will be led by famous historian who you might have seen on Most Haunted, Richard Felix. See more about Richard Felix and the ghost walks here.
