Events: Granny Cousins’ Halloween Ghost Walk of Old Poole Town

Granny Cousin Ghost Walk
Granny Cousins’ Halloween Ghost Walk of Old Poole Town Special - Saturday 29th October - 6.00pm and 8.00pm.   

As the shadows lengthen at Halloween, don your scariest costumes and step behind the scenes of Poole’s Great Quay. Light your lantern and come down the narrow alleyways. You never know what, or who, you might meet.  Now in its fourteenth year, local Victorian character Granny Cousins and her sidekick 'Red' will take you on an entertaining and informative evening walk and tell you about some of the people that have lived, worked and....haunted this ancient fishing port. 

What the ghost walkers have to say:

 "Brilliant walk this evening - thanks Granny! Some great ghost stories, and the history of Poole brought to life, better than a trip to a museum any day. If you are a local or a visitor I'd recommend you get to one of the walks you won't be disappointed!"

James Cope

"My partner and I came along to your ghost walk of old Poole town last Wednesday with our three children and we all really enjoyed it. Thankyou very much for a great evening! Had a great time tonight,very interesting, and a few laughs along the way! definitely recommended!!!"
