MARCH 2019: CLOSURE OF BUSINESS:

After 10 wonderful years Cardiff History and Hauntings is closed permanently from 1st March 2019 and we are moving on to pastures new. We would like to thank the many thousands of customers from all over the world who have joined us on our historical tours and ghost tours, and we trust that your experience with us has left you with many happy memories of Cardiff, of Wales, and of its history, legends and ghost stories. Our aim is to translate the stories, and our experiences on the ghost tours, into publications in the course of 2019.

MAY 2019: WELCOME TO "DARK WALES TOURS"!

A message from James Cowan, founder of Cardiff History and Hauntings: 

Two former members of the Cardiff History and Hauntings Team, Matthew Rose and Luke Allcock, have established "Dark Wales Tours". I am delighted to offer them my full endorsement with their new venture.

Not only does Dark Wales Tours maintain the ethos and approach of Cardiff History and Hauntings, but promises to take these further over time, with new research, new ideas, new tours, and new venues.

Matthew is a first class natural storyteller who shares with Luke an extensive knowledge of Welsh history and a passion for its legacy, legends and ghostlore. From my experience of working with them over several years I know they will offer a professional, compelling, and thoroughly researched experience with integrity. For this reason...

"Dark Wales Tours" is the only ghost tour operation in Cardiff I will recommend
