The Lanes is Brighton’s most celebrated quarter, yet beneath its convivial veneer darker forces are at work…
Join actor and master storyteller Rob Marks as the eccentric Silas the Ghost Walker, or his fellow ghost walkers Jasper and Ebenezer, for a 70 minute walk around Brighton’s famous Lanes visiting eight haunted sites.
This small area, with its narrow pages and tightly packed buildings, was once the original fishing settlement of Brighthelmstone – it is the oldest part of the city and, unquestionably, the most haunted.
Alongside the spine-tingling tales the walk takes in much of the area’s rich and varied history. The walk includes eight macabre tales of brutal murders, hideous apparitions, boisterous poltergeists, wandering nuns and Brighton’s infamous Jack-the-Ripper connection.
Silas, Jasper and Ebenezer all perform in full Victorian attire, complete with Gladstone bag, containing a few surprises!

"Run, don't walk to the Ghost Tour"
Amazing evening discovering the history of The Lanes. I had the good fortune of being guided by Silas, who was a very funny and entertaining guide, as well as being truly knowledgeable about the area. Well worth the money.

"Informative and Funny"
We took the ghost tour with a group of University students; we were all very enthusiastic about it afterwards. Our Tour Guide's name was Jasper, he was extremely funny and we all enjoyed every minute of the tour. Would definitely recommend if you want to be informed and entertained at the same time.

"Great Spooky Fun!"
This was booked on a whim and was completely worth it. Ebenezer was very funny and informative. The stories were eerie with a good dose of humour. Will recommend this to anyone visiting Brighton. Great for families, students and couples. Would love to do this again!

Brighton Old Town Hall
Brighton Town Hall dates from 1830, built in a neo-classical style with imposing fluted columns. The town’s constabulary was once housed in its basement. It is there, in the area of the old police cells, that a brutal murder once took place. No wonder a dark and brooding presence has been seen to materialise there.
The Old Steine
The Old Steine was once an area of common land used by the fishing folk of Brighton. It is also an area where is said to linger the city’s more horrific apparition; the mutilated form of the one-time adventurer and soldier of fortune, John Robinson.
This seafront building was once the Star and Garter Hotel and dates from 1750. Why is it that customers frequently have the unnerving feeling of being watched? Moreover, what sordid goings on happened in one of the upper rooms and in the old cellars?
Psychic investigators have experienced much paranormal energy emanating from this ancient building, particularly in the upper room around the old fireplace. Lumbering footsteps and a vision of a young girl hiding in the cellar have been experienced there. A tot of their house speciality, ‘Fisherman’s Friend’, at £1 a shot, might help to steady your nerves!
Black Lion Lane
Many ladies claim to feel an amorous presence whilst passing through this dark and narrow little lane. Some have even felt a fleeting spectral peck on the cheek!
Meeting House Lane
Enter Brighton’s most famous lane and you may suddenly feel overcome with sadness. Pass by the bricked up doorway and you could feel an unearthly chill pass through you. What awful tragedy is said cause this unnerving sensation?
The Cricketers is a friendly and welcoming pub. The original part of its structure dates from as early as 1547, but beneath this convivial veneer, darker forces are at work there. Why does its ghostly resident seem only to appear to the women folk who enter the bar?
The Druid’s Head
This is thought to be Brighton’s oldest tavern, dating from as early as 1510. There have been over one hundred accounts of paranormal activity reported there and, moreover, poltergeist activity! Could this be anything to do with an area of Druidic sacrifice on which the building stands?
