The Llandaff Cardiff Ghost Walk
This is a ghost walk with a difference – a Cardiff ghost tour in an ancient village setting. The Ghost Walk takes you through country lanes, ruins, graveyards and fields. Mysterious, sad and terrifying tales await: a mournful white lady, seen for generations near the river and in the woodlands; a sinister, hooded and faceless man in black who watches, and follows visitors; a hideously ugly witch-like demon, a portent of death, haunting the lanes and woodlands; curious ghostly children, seen, heard and felt throughout the route. When: now / Where: The junction of Heol Fair and the Cathedral Green in Llandaff / How much: £8.50 per person (ADVANCED BOOKING ONLY)
