City Centre Ghostwalk

The now legendary City Centre Walk takes you around Derby City Centre.

Starting at our meeting point, Ye Olde Dolphin. We start the walk with an introduction to the night as we head off to the Cornmarket, and Fishmarket areas of the city, where you will learn the infamous ghost story of PC Moss, the only police officer in Derby to be murdered in the line of duty.

The walk continues through the marketplace and into the Jorrocks, our haunted pub stop, home of an actual human skull, found in the early 1990s.

The trip continues in to St Mary’s Gate and back to the Dolphin, where we round the walk off with a visit to the haunted cellars and candlelit supper.


Walks last approximately 3 hours, starting at 7pm and finishing around 10pm.

Ghost Walks cost £25.00 per person
Children under 12, students and OAPs – £22.00
and the price includes a candlelit supper.


Friar Gate Ghost Walk

This walk starts and finishes at The Derby Gaol, which has resided at the basement of 50/51 Friargate Since 1756. On your way round you will hear stories of murders, executions, crime, punishment and ghostly occurrences.

We start with a brief tour of the Gaol, treating everyone like inmates, and continue the walk up to Derby’s 3rd and last County Prison on Vernon Gate visiting the execution room and the very haunted tower. We then walk down Agard Street to hear the story of the murder of Eliza Morrow and the last public execution in Derbysire before returning to our Gaol for a Condemned Man’s Supper.

Then unlike so many that have been in the Gaol before, you will be permitted to go home!

Walks last approximately 3 hours, starting at 7pm and finishing around 10pm.
