Southampton Ghost Walks and Ghost Tours

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

Are you interested in seeing the history from a unique perspective? Possibly the most haunted city on the South Coast, Southampton has a dark history of murder, mayhem, plotting and politics. From the sinking of famous ships to the invasions of the French, the dark monuments of Southampton are witness to it all.  

Join Dark Encounters as they bring to life stories of  Southampton within the chilling setting of the Old Town and the Medieval Walls. Dare you follow your guide as they take you deep within the battlements and towers of the old quarter and its chequered history. 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...

Southampton is an ancient city… from the dominating Medieval Castle and walls, to tunnels dug by medieval merchants; to a dark network of alleyways used by Georgian smugglers.
