Spooky stories will be the order of the day on a series of ghost tours around Lichfield. The Gruesome and Ghostly tours, led by Green Badge tour guides, take in the places in the city where ghosts have been spotted over the years. Tales covered include the mystery of the darkened Erasmus Darwin House, the Market Square burnings, the ghosts of Dam Street, and many more stories of ghostly sightings. Councillor David Smith, Leader of Lichfield District Council, said:
“If you haven’t been on one of these brilliant tours, make sure you don’t have to wait until next autumn to book your place. They give a fascinating insight into Lichfield’s gruesome past and shine a new, if not spooky, light on our historic city.”
The last dates in this series of the Gruesome and Ghostly tours are: March 3, 9 and 22. All the tours set off at 7pm and finish at a local public house for a glass of mulled wine and a sausage or vegetarian roll. Tickets cost £5.95, and can be bought from the Tourist Information Centre in the Lichfield Garrick or by telephoning the team on 01543 412112. The new season of Gruesome and Ghostly tours will kick off this October. For more information, go to
