Description

An informative--and slightly spooky--lamplight tour of York's Old Burying Ground. The lives of those buried within the hallowed walls of the historic cemetery will be illuminated by guides dressed as 18th-century townsfolk. There are more than 100 gravestones within the burying ground, each with a story to tell about a life--and a death. 

Please note that this tour lasts approximately an hour and takes place outside after dark, so please dress warmly. The terrain is uneven, and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. This program is not recommended for those with mobility issues. Guides will have lanterns, but it is recommended that guests bring their own flashlights.

Tour begins promptly at the Lindsay Road entrance to the Museum Center, so please arrive no later than 5 minutes prior to check in. Because the tour size is limited, if you do not check in by the start time of the tour, your ticket may be released to someone on the waiting list. No refunds can be issued within 24 hours of the event.

In case of inclement weather, the tour is cancelled and tickets will be refunded, or credited towards another scheduled tour.

Each tour is limited to 18 people, and you must pre-register online (this includes members). No tickets will be sold at the door.
