Ghost Week – The Royal Court Ghost Hauntings

Sun Oct 24 Sun Oct 31

There are eleven unique Royal Court Ghosts haunting buildings across the city and the Merchants have set a challenge to try and spot them all. There are no prizes for finding them but we hope that you have some fun exploring the city and some of the slightly off the beaten track locations to discover them all. There is a guide to help you on our Ghost Week map (not the printable version)

The Royal Court was an extended royal household generally made up of the monarch and all of the people who involved themselves in taking care of Royal household and who helped to govern the country.

In our court there are four members of the royal family and the seven most devoted court members. They have been hand painted onto rare “tall” Ghosts by Ghost Merchant Mrs Humphreys using ink & wash.

You can bid for these very special Ghosts on eBay, search:

YORK GHOST ROYAL COURT on eBay to place your bid. All the profit (90% of the sale price) will go directly to Papyrus a charity which is dedicated to the prevention of young suicide.
