Ripon audio tour: Ghosts of Ripon

About the Tour

This is a mile-long round trip around the centre of Ripon, second-smallest city in the UK. It shows the major landmarks, the three museums that make up the Museums Trust where some of the ghosts of Ripon reside. This tour is abridged from the Ghost Walks, which happen regularly on Thursday evenings and are based on the work of Maurice Taylor.
