Founded over two thousand years ago, it is not surprising that the town entertains its fair share of ghosts, ghoulies and things that go bump in the night.
Thetford dates back to Saxon times and, beneath the town on the north side of the river, there lies a network of tunnels. There is most definitely a darker side to Thetford, with tales of murder, mystery, ghosts and legends.
Feeling brave? Then walk with our costumed guide through the darkened streets and alleyways and you never know who, or perhaps what, you may encounter.
The Ghost Walk offers an evening walking tour of Thetford`s haunted locations and lasts approximately 1½ hours. Whilst the planned route is manageable by both wheelchair and pushchair users and can be enjoyed by the whole family, it does cover about 1½ miles.
Please note that people participating in the Ghost Walk do so at their own risk and no liability is accepted. There are no specific toilet facilities on the Walk route. It is recommended that participants wear stout shoes or boots.
The Ghost Walks take place from when the clocks go back to when the clocks go forward (September to March). Tickets can be booked from the Leaping Hare Ticket Office, on 01842 751975, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I'm asked "Are you afraid of the dark", my answer is "No, I'm afraid of what is in the dark."
Remember, they're dead. You're not.
Ghost hunting is kind of like fishing, you don't really know if you're going to catch anything or not, and most of the time you're just waiting.
