The ghosts of Christmas past are returning to the city this December with spooky festive tales from across the county.

The haunting walks start at the Adam and Eve pub in Bishopsgate, which is the oldest pub in Norwich, and the Shadowcaster will take visitors around the Cow Tower Park area along the River Wensum.

The walks will last one hour and will run every weekday from 7.30pm from December 10 until December 21 and there will be a glass of mulled wine, or juice, and a mince pie, waiting for each person at the pub.

The Silent Hand, who organises and researches the Norwich Ghost Walks, said: 'It is festive stories from Norwich and Norfolk and a one hour walk followed by refreshments.

'It is a mix of stories which are fully researched factual events with historical background including the mystery of the Christmas Eve hunt around the Broads and tales around the Royal family spending Christmas at Sandringham.'

The Shadowcaster is leading the Christmas walks for the first time and has big boots to fill as his predecessor the Man in Black ran the Norwich Ghost Walks for a decade.
