Oxford at nightfall...The crowds are dispersing, and the deserted, gloomy streets await us. The Oxford Ghost Tour will lead you away from the bustle and noise of central Oxford into the eeriest parts of the city, the domain of demons, dark deeds, the Devil, and death. All the accounts are based on documented events. They feature not only paranormal manifestations, but also gruesome executions and heart-rending deaths, some from eye witness testimony. You will hear spine-chilling stories from the city's bloody past and of the spirit entities it has left behind. You will see the locations where the apparitions have revealed themselves, and may do again. You might sense their presence, feel their touch, hear their groaning, smell their putrefaction.
