The Horrid Tour of Carlisle

The Horrid Tour of Carlisle


Plague, executions, public punishments, daring escapes, raiders and grave robbers. Join our storyteller for a family friendly story walk with a twist. Be warned, you may never see the city the same way again.

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…

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.
