Chichester Ghost Walks and Ghost Tours

Every street has a story to tell… you just need to close your eyes and listen…

That can be difficult with modern traffic congestion - but on a Theatre of Dark Encounters Ghost Tour you will be immersed in a world of ghosts, murder, and mystery as we weave together a hidden history that connects people to the place and the past in a very meaningful, human way.

We will take you deep into a England's dark heritage, far deeper than a virtual guidebook or bus tour ever could; because in the words of our immersive storytellers, we bring the city’s stories screaming to life.  What makes the Theatre of Dark Encounters different? The art of a good ghost story well told...

Chichester is an ancient city…comprised of stone roads worn by Roman soldiers; to tunnels dug by medieval merchants; to a dark network of alleyways used by Georgian smugglers. Dominated by ecclesiastical life of the Cathedral, the four quarters of the city shimmer with shadows of the monks, priests and the all-powerful Bishops. 

Even today legends of aa heron which lands on the Chichester Cathedral’s spire warns of the Bishop’s impending death; celebration of All Saint’s Day on November 1, as Chichester’s shops sell small white-iced cakes representing the saints’ white robes in Heaven.
