Bath: Ghost Hunters Silent Disco Guided Tour

In the 1980s, a young ghost hunter came to Bath to document all its restless residents. Sadly, their work was never completed due to their mysterious death. The only certainty that they existed at all is in the two items they left behind: a folder full of their unfinished research notes, and their Walkman, still loaded with the mixtape they were listening to at the time. Follow in their footsteps through the streets of Bath and dance — possibly for your life — to finish the job they started all those years ago. If you are organizing a special event such as a birthday or bachelor/bachelorette party, upgrade to the Private Tour option for an exclusive group experience for between 10-28 participants.
