Full description
In the shadows of the biggest cathedral in Britain, lies one of the most mysterious and actively haunted locations in the world; Liverpool’s St. James Cemetery. Once the settlement of an ancient pagan witch-cult, then a quarry, then a Victorian graveyard, this remarkable 'Canyon of the Dead' is crammed with almost 60,000 Victorian and Edwardian corpses and is positively steeped in supernatural folklore and genuine paranormal phenomena. Join Mr. Roberts and Miss Llewellyn- your friendly guides- as they lead you down by lantern light and regale you with the incredible, true local legends of ghosts, witches, vampires, black magicians, demonic shadow-entities, and even friendly elf-like creatures… all of which have been sighted countless times at this... otherworldly place. Embark on a whimsical, paranormal adventure right in Liverpool's city centre- this is undoubtedly a must-see experience for anyone even remotely curious about Liverpool’s folkloric legends and mind-blowing supernatural history.
