Events: Halloween Ghost Walk of Dorchester

Alistair Chisholm, Dorchester's Town Crier, has been running Ghost Walks for more than ten years and no one has died of a heart attack........yet !

His ghost walks explore the Dorset Towns of Weymouth and Dorchester. Reliving some of its more grisly history, recounting tales of gruesome and ghastly characters whose presence still pervades the narrow streets and alleys of the old towns. A little scary, very entertaining and most enjoyable. Suitable for all the family.

Halloween Ghost Walks:
  • 27th October
  • 31st October
No need to book, just turn up at the Kings Arms in Dorchester 8.00 pm. Adults £5, children £2. No booking required.
