The Carlisle City Ghost Tour was started in 2016 by Jo Mills and is part of Carvetii Storytelling. The tours have proved hugely popular, taking over 600 people in the first year.
As a storytelling walk with a difference, the focus on dark history and ghost stories brings the history of our great city to life in an unexpected way. You never know what might be lurking in the shadows...
Jo's background in storytelling and love of dark history drives these tours. She began telling ghost stories when she worked as a ghost tour guide at the notorious Port Arthur Penal Station in Tasmania. Working here allowed Jo to delve into darker history where she developed a fascination for ghastly stories. Join her to hear tales of grave robbing, executions, plagues and suspicious deaths.
Carlisle's dark history dates back over 2000 years and the city provides a backdrop for the macabre and gristly. As you walk the streets of Carlisle's historic quarter with your storyteller you will be immersed in our darkest of tales. This is not the history you learnt at school.
Carlisle is located approx 9 miles from the Scottish border with easy access from the M6 and A69. For more details on the city visit www.discovercarlisle.co.uk
