Throughout the holiday period join The Victorian Ghost Hunter, aka Haunted Blackpool author and founder of the award-winning Supernatural Events, Stephen Mercer, on the spooky strolls or the haunted heritage tram to learn about Blackpool and the Fylde Coast’s “darker” history and its many ghostly goings-ons!
Blackpool Ghost Walks take place from Wednesday 18th July to Saturday 27th October (Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings). They start at the Blackpool Tourist Information Centre at 7.30pm and wind their way around streets and lanes in the town centre stopping at some of Blackpool’s most important (and most haunted) buildings, attractions and outside spaces with those in attendance hearing tales of terror, stories of the supernatural, myths, mystery and the macabre!
Blackpool Ghost Walks are family-friendly, accessible for all and last approximately 90 minutes. They have consistently been rated the “Number One Tour in Blackpool” by TripAdvisor for the past three years and Supernatural Events has recently received a Certificate in Excellence 2018 award for continuing to receive rave reviews for its walks and other eerie tours and events.
Tickets are just £6, £3.50 for under 16s or £16 for a family of four (minimum of one under 16 in attendance). They can be purchased in advance from www.BlackpoolGhostWalks.co.uk or from your host on the evening of a walk.
If you’re feeling really brave then step aboard The Ghost Tram (Friday evenings from the 20th July to 26th October) and you will be taken on a terrifying trip from Blackpool along the Fylde Coast to Fleetwood and back to hear more stories of spooks and hauntings, along with some dark and disturbing secrets too!
This unique tour combines a heritage tram ride with a gripping and spine-tingling look into the ghostly goings-ons along the Fylde Coast. Stephenadded, “The Ghost Tram has certainly captured people’s imagination. Having told tales of hauntings and the paranormal around Blackpool’s promenade and town centre areas on the ghost walks, it is fantastic to go further afield on a heritage tram and tell even more stories all the way along the Fylde Coast from Blackpool to Fleetwood and back! It’s going to be a fun, exciting and quite a spooky summer with both Blackpool Ghost Walks and The Ghost Tram taking place!”
The Ghost Tram departs from the North Pier Heritage Tram stop at 7.30pm. The tours are family-friendly and last approximately 90 minutes. Prices are £9.50 per adult, £4.00 child or £21.00 for a family of four (2 adults and 2 children; children must be under 16 years). More details (and how to book online) can be found at www.TheGhostTram.co.uk.
Tickets are likely to go with all the force of a poltergeist for both Blackpool Ghost Walks and The Ghost Tram, so book early and rest in peace!
