For a very small price you can enjoy what is considered the most authentic of all the ghostly walks around York's winding streets. This company claim not to rely on gimmickry to achieve a magical journey of history and mystery. The guides are all qualified and if you really want to check their authenticity you can buy the company's "Ghosts of York" video. All the walks start from the King's Arms (the pub that floods) at 8p. Latecomers can join the walk at Clifford's Tower steps at 8:30p. The tours last approximately one and a half hours.

- Venue Description:
York's annual floods have ensured the infamy of the King's Arms, appearing as it does on the local news every time, with tedious predictability. It must be a nightmare to insure. Maybe that's why the furniture inside is a tad thin on the ground. Unfortunately for its owner, the pub's curse—that is, its proximity to the river—is also its most attractive feature. Most drinkers head for the picnic tables outside, a capital place to enjoy a pint and watch the river slinking past, biding its moment before it pays the pub a return visit.
