If ghosts, spooky tales, and superstitions are your thing then the Ghostly and Macabre Tour of Bury St Edmunds, which starts every year around Halloween, is bound to raise spirits!

Starting with Moyse’s Hall, the oldest Norman building in the country and the second oldest building in England, you'll hear the story of the Red Barn Murderer – William Corder, whose trial, conviction and execution brought thousands to the town… onto spectral goings on at the Market Cross and then to The Nutshell pub to hear the stories of witches, mummified cats and local folklore.
