These tours run from late September to early March, starting from 6.45pm on evenings they are booked, departing from the Town Church in St Peter Port, and lasting around two hours.
Your accredited guide, dressed in costume and carrying a lamplight, takes you through the “spooky” parts of the old Town, and narrates local ghost hauntings, superstitions and folklore as you walk in darkness over cobbled streets where privateers stored their bounty. From the famous Witch Trials and tortures of the 16th and 17th centuries, when 78 locals were hanged and burnt at the stake, to even older folklore, you will be amazed and perhaps even chilled by what you hear.
Torches, sensible clothing and shoes plus wet weather gear (in case of rain) are all advisable. Each tour is accompanied by an excellent meal at a local restaurant, close to the scenes of the crimes, which will be advised and a menu provided upon booking/enquiry.
