The tour guide will be wearing our trademark Top Hat, in a quite fashionable style if we do say so ourselves. Wolf wears his trademark leather vest.
What should we wear?
Wear comfortable walking shoes, tennis shoes are recommended. The Black Swan Tour walks through fields of grass, so closed toe shoes are highly beneficial.
Should we bring anything?
We recommend bringing a water bottle for The Ghost Tours at the Black Swan Inn. For The Haunted Pub Crawl cash is recommended as cards can slow down the crawl. We offer refreshments, snacks and umbrellas at the Bad Wolf Ghost Tour Shop that you may bring with you on The Ghost Walk and The Haunted Pub Crawl!
Is the tour safe for children?
Of course! (with exception of the 21+ Pub Crawl) Children are always welcome, under 5 are free. Keep in mind that some of the histories are graphic (We talk about a murder, suicide, or dismemberment at every location) but all in all, kids will have a blast.
Is it really haunted?
All of our information is investigator verified. If our research hasn’t found any historical or paranormal evidence to back up a sighting, it’s not on the tour. In short yes, it’s really haunted. We can’t guarantee you’ll catch anything on the tour, but people have in the past.
What is a Pub Crawl?
A pub crawl is essentially a bar hopping tour, in which participants have a drink at each bar before heading to the next one; Ours adds stories of each bar’s history and hauntings along the way.
