Haunted City Tours Victorian Ghost Walk
1800s Newcastle on Tyne was a very different place with criminal gangs in the body trade, fake clairvoyants pedaling there ways in darkened houses, such terrifying ways of contacting the dead in séances, child labor killing many and murder suicide!

Minutes into the walk a Building stands with wooden drawbridges and takes form of one of the most haunted locations in the Northeast it takes us into a hideaway where the grim old Newcastle, Castle entry rears up directly before us. It’s a hideaway so dark and so still that you can hear people breathing, a place where the clock seems permanently turned back to the Victorian murders of old Newcastle, back to the location of many DEATHS.
