We have explored some of the haunted walking ghost tours in Edinburgh, London and York. In all the ghost tours the guides were outstanding and made the experience for us. There are many ghost tours in the Uk to choose from. The Edinburgh ghost tours, by Mercat Tours and were outstanding, their knowledge and story telling is an art not to be missed.  The London ghost walks (Jack the Ripper Tour), led by paranormal author and broadcaster Richard Jones, again their guides make you believe you are part of that scene in Whitechapel where the murders took place. The York Ghost Hunt, was a quirky take that had you terrified in one breath and laughing the next !
