Murder, executions, plague, riots, witchcraft and sightings of ghostly figures, the Bury St Edmunds Tour Guides take you on a journey around our haunted town.

Starting with Moyse’s Hall, we tell you the story of the Red Barn Murderer – William Corder, who trial, conviction and execution brought thousands to the town… onto spectral goings on at the Market Cross and then to the Nutshell pub to hear the stories of witches, mummified cats and local folklore.

We wind our way around the darkened streets to tell stories of screaming skulls, mysterious ‘monk’ like figures appearing in cellars, burnings and hangings and more, finishing up in the dark and deserted Great Churchyard where the guides recall the stories from the Abbey and the famous Grey Lady.

The Bury St Edmunds Ghostly and Macabre Tour starts on Halloween (Wednesday October 31) and then every Friday evening from 2 November to 22 March 2019, excluding Friday 23 November. The 90-minute tour costs £6 per person and starts from outside Marks and Spencer on the Cornhill at 6.30pm.

Numbers are restricted to 20 guests per guide- perfect to hear the stories close up and maybe experience something out of the ordinary ... Due to the content of the tour, participants must be aged 14 years or over.

The tour can also be booked for groups outside of these times/ dates by contacting the Apex. During the summer, we offer the tour later during the evening due to longer daylight.

Tickets must be booked in advance via the website here.
