Portsmouth 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…

Portsmouth is an ancient town… comprised of a labyrinth of dark smuggler alleyways, used to ‘run’ illicit goods underground. But having the home of the Royal Navy within the Dockyard has created a constant battle of cat and mouse between smugglers and pirates and the Excise Men and the Royal Naval officers. But beware - the ‘Gangers’ are out in Town tonight looking for new recruits to press gang. Dare you tread the dark the streets tonight to hear stories of ghosts, mayhem and murder?
