Enjoy an atmospheric ghost walk in the ancient "city within a city"just a 15 minute bus ride from Cardiff City Centre. 

Mysterious, sad and terrifying true tales await: a mournful white lady, seen for generations near the river and in the woodlands; a sinister, hooded and faceless man in black; a hideously ugly witch-like demon, a portent of death; curious ghostly children, seen, heard and felt throughout the route.

All these and many more tales, ancient and modern, await!

In case it all gets too much, end the evening with spirits of a different kind, in one of Llandaff’s many pubs!

Practicalities

IMPORTANT: THIS IS NOT A "GHOST HUNT" OR PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION. The stories we tell are all true. Occasionally incidents occur which cannot be explained and we talk about these on the tour. However, we do not attempt to "communicate" and electronic equipment is not allowed.

Location: Walks start from the large stone cross at the junction of Heol Fair and the Cathedral Green in Llandaff.  Post code is CF5 2DZ: Click HERE for a map.

Time: Check-in times vary. Please check on booking. Walks set off at the latest 10 minutes after check-in time.

What to expect: A walk with true stories of ghostly phenomena told amidst the wooded lanes, pathways and ruins around Llandaff Cathedral. No one "jumps out", and it is not a "ghost hunt". We might experience the unexplained but this cannot be guaranteed. The walk is on public land/footpaths so passers-by might occasionally be present although we endeavour to ensure a secluded atmospheric experience for our group. Please note that there are no toilets on the route.

What should I wear?: Dress to be warm, dry and protected. The walk is all outdoors and can be cold throughout the year, sometimes muddy, sometimes with long grass and brambles/nettles close by. 

What should I bring?Please bring a torch (flashlight) or tell us if you need to borrow one.

What should I NOT bring?: No alchohol allowed. For the sake of all participants, anyone intoxicated or disruptive will be banned without a refund. 

Is it suitable for children?: Not suitable for young children. Minimum age 12. 12-18 year olds must be accompanied by an appropriate number of adults (ie parent or legal guardian). Certain stories have dark/adult themes so parental discretion is advised.

What about youth groups?: (eg scouts/guides/community youth groups) Please call us first. We can offer private tours at a discount for which the tone, choice and content of the stories is selected in discussion with group leaders. However, in the best interests of all we do not allow youth groups on public scheduled tours without prior arrangement/agreement.

Photography/recording?: no photographs while stories are being told please, and no audio/video recording at any time.

WE DO NOT STAGE OR SET UP ANY "GHOSTLY" INCIDENTS AND THERE ARE NO LIGHTING OR SOUND EFFECTS. This is a walk with true accounts of paranormal experiences in this place and enduring local legends of ghosts, told at the atmospheric spots where they are said to have occurred. It is not a "ghost spotting" experience, and paranormal activity cannot (unfortunately!) be guaranteed, although reported experiences during the walk are not uncommon.
