  • Clare College - Clare College - The home of the bizarre story of the original ‘skeleton in the cupboard’
  • Market Square - Market Square - Home to lovely streetfood now, but 500 years ago it was a different meat burning….
  • St Bene’t’s Church (Church of England) - Benet Streer - The oldest building in Cambridge, opposite a pub whose lease states a particular window must always be open because of the suffocating feeling all customers experience when its ghosts are trapped inside
  • Corpus Christi College - Corups Christi - Home of some famous ghosts, including a Master of the college and another famous cupboard!

Take a Walk on the Wild Side - James's knowledge of Cambridge was both informative and comprehensive. I think if he had dressed in costume as the advertisement had suggested, that would have been fun. More jokes please.

A fun way to see the City - The fun, informative walk takes you to some lesser seen areas of the city. Really interesting snaps of history with spooky stories. The host was great and friendly. The party included young children and was tailored perfectly.

A fab way to see the city centre - Although it was dark,I thought this was a great introduction to the city centre. The guide was clearly passionate about history and pointed out a couple spots that weren't on the tour list, which was nice. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Chuck is Epic - We met our guide Chuck and he politely greeted us in a great getup with an atmospheric outfit of a black bowler hat, long coat and spooky lantern. Chuck was very funny, very nice and epic. Chuck told the stories with both humour and spookiness, as well as some cool fun facts along the way. Defiantly worth it! Thank you Chuck!
