  • How long are the tours?
    On average, the tour will last for 1 hr and 45 minutes, so all going well, the tour should end around 9.15pm. For some private tours we can, and do, adjust the tour to include extra sights and details, or indeed if required make the tour shorter in duration.
  • Where do the tours begin/meeting point?
    All of the tours begin outside of the Bristol Cathedral on College green. Very central and easy to find. On the evening of the tour itself, please arrive no later than 5 mins before the tour and look for the costumed guide close to the main door of the Cathedral.
  • Where does the tour finish?
    The Bristol Ghost Tour ends in Queens Square, right in the heart of the city and close to public transport and hotels. Queens Square is also just at the end of one of Bristol's best locations for a recovery drink or three, being very close to King street.
  • Do you offer private tours?
    Yes indeed we do, private tours are suitable for groups between 2 and 32 people. If you have a larger group request, this is still possible, but it will require an extra guide and splitting the group into 2. Private tours are available on most days of the year, subject to availability. Please contact us directly for further details.
  • Is the tour suitable for children?
    This is indeed a good question. The ghost tour is indeed suitable for children and is a lot of fun. We have spent a lot of time with the Bath Ghost Tour, making sure that it is suitable for all the family, and we have taken the same principles and applied them to the Bristol Ghost Tour.
  • How much walking is involved in the tour, and are there steps?
    This is of course a walking tour and consequently, there will be walking involved. We take a relaxed approach to the walking, so we never rush you, but it's fair to say that you will be walking for roughly 30 minutes. The centre of Bristol is very busy at times and we have taken measures to minimise road crossings etc. There is one main section of steps involved in the tour, Christmas Steps, which are most certainly not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. It is possible to do the tour missing out on these steps by leaving the rest of the crowd and re-joining around the corner, some minutes later. There are also cobble stones to negotiate on the tour, consequently if asked, we would suggest that this tour is not suitable, unfortunately for wheelchair access.
  • When do the tours run?
    In 2023, we are running the ghost tours on Weds, Thurs, Fri, and Saturday nights at 7.30 pm, between the months of May and December. Private tours are available on most days of the year, subject to availability.
  • What happens if it rains?
    Yes unfortunately it does rain on occasion. This is generally not a problem at all, an umbrella is recommended, and always check the latest forecast before setting out. We run the tours in all weathers, and sometimes the nastier the weather, the better the tour. In the years that we have been running ghost tours, there has only been 2 occasions when the weather was so bad that we had to cancel, in this event, all monies are of course refunded.
  • Can we bring our dog along?
    This is a question we get asked a lot for our ghost tours. The simple answer is yes, but only as long as your dog is very well behaved and on a leash. Please note however that if your dog does act up on the tour, you will be asked to leave unfortunately. We have had a few issues in the past and have to ask dog owners to be really confident that their pet will be fine on the tour with a crowd of strangers.
  • How do I get to the meeting point?
    College Green is very easy to get to. It sits at the bottom of Park St (please see the attached map on the contact page). There is a bus stop directly next to the Green and the Cathedral is right there. Parking at night time is much easier than during the day with many of the car parks offering cheap deals.
