Lakeland Hauntings will give you goosebumps on your trip to the Lakes with Ghost Tours in Keswick and Cockermouth, 2 of our beautiful and historic market towns. There are lots of spooky stories to tell so follow “The Lady’ if you dare.

Keswick has a history full of murder, intrigue, and tortured souls. From slate-built houses to the surrounding lakes and fells this is an area steeped in legend and mystery.

Experience the darker side of Cockermouth, an historic town, and the childhood home of William Wordsworth, with a hidden past lurking in the shadows of the Georgian splendour. Be brave and join “The Lady” as she tells tales of “Boggles ‘n sec lyke” for a very Cumbrian haunting.
