Dorset Ghost Walks

If you are looking for something different this year, then ghost tours can provide some great entertainment, especially if they're ghost tours after dark.

Haunted Harbour Tours

Haunted Harbour ToursFor those with a strong constitution, and a wish to discover the more chilling and grisly aspects of local history and folklore, why not join us on our ghostly walking tour of Old Weymouth town?

We visit the more macabre sites in Weymouth and Melcombe Regis, and tell you about the legends of the local Inns and Alehouses, murders, and other long forgotten tales of history. Many of these locations have had reputed haunted happenings and sightings, and we reveal these stories from local folklore, personal recollections from our tourists, and recently discovered archived material, which will excite you, and open a whole new view of this seaside town for you to explore.

Pike And Shot Events Ltd organise tours in the UK and throughout the rest of Europe.

Current Dorset based tours for 2012 include our popular Wednesday evening "Haunted Harbour Tour" of Old Weymouth and Melcombe Regis waterfront, and our Thursday evening "Weymouth Smuggling Tour" around the backstreets and passageways of the town.

New for 2012 is our "Moonfleet Smuggling Tour" taking you on a walking trip around the beautiful shores of the Fleet Lagoon and the countryside made famous in the Novel by J. Meade Falkner and film "Moonfleet" - a story of Smuggling and Piracy on the high seas, based around the 17th Century Manor House of the Mohun family. These run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from April to October.

We have also put together a "Timewalk Tour" based on the local history of Weymouth and the surrounding area in response to many requests from visitors who were wanting to visit the Old Time Walk visitor attraction, now closed in Brewers Quay. This tour is only available if pre-booked on Wednesdays. Out of our main season (APRIL to OCTOBER) most tours are now available by special advanced booking for parties of 6 or more people.
