Bill Spectre Ghost Trail image

You are hereby cordially invited to join Bill Spectre on his award-winning walking tour of Oxford's ghosts. Illustrated with props and illusions, your costumed guide (who is a professional actor and equity member) will entertain and horrify you through the streets of this most historic city. You may regret not bringing a camera!

The spirits of Oxford are revealed on Friday and Saturday evenings, when we examine the nightmares that lie beneath the dreaming spires of this most edifying city. Join Bill as he lifts the lid on this seat of learning. Private group bookings at other times by arrangement. 

Historically informative yet hugely entertaining, it's the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere of this famous city, leaving you with a deliciously scary tingle running down your spine.

Intrepid ghost hunters should meet outside the glass fronted gift shop of Oxford Castle Unlocked. Bill Spectre (distinctively dressed as a Victorian undertaker) will depart from that place at 6.30pm every Friday and Saturday evening. For a shorter walk, meet outside the Tourist Information Centre, 15-16 Broad Street at 6:50pm.

Beware! The board outside the blue gates of Trinity College has nothing to do with Bill Spectre's Ghost Trail, he never leaves from there.

The tour lasts approximately 1 ¾ hours from the castle or 1 ¼ hours from the Tourist Information Centre, and ends near the Sheldonian Theatre.
