Haunted Pub Crawl – Derby

Get ready for a spine-tingling journey through Derby’s most haunted pubs with the legendary Richard Felix! Our Haunted Pub Crawl starts at the historic Seven Stars, where tales of the past come to life.

As night falls, we’ll weave through the shadowy streets, visiting pubs each with its own ghostly story. Feel the chill of history as Richard brings to life tales of spirits and specters that have lingered for centuries.

The climax of our spooky sojourn? The infamous Derby Gaol – a place shrouded in mystery and dark tales. Hear stories of its eerie past, enough to send shivers down your spine.

And what better way to end this ghostly gallivant than with a candlelit supper and a visit to the haunted cellars of Ye olde Dolphyn, scene of human dissections and anatomisation. A night of frights, delights, and maybe a spirit (of the liquid kind too)!


Time: 7pm Start
Meet at: Derby Goal underneath 51 Friar Gate, DE1 1DF.
