Hello, browser of the internet. My name is Dorian Deathly, and I am a tour guide here in the wonderful city of York. and it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance. You must be here because you're the curious type, looking to uncover some of the darker and more unpleasant things that lurk within the two thousand years of York's murkier moments. We'll get along just fine.

Consider me your tour guide, story teller, fellow adventurer in time. Together we will talk of murders, executions, the plagues and pestilence, and perhaps the odd things that go bump in the night. 

Twenty years of experience as a storyteller, half a decade of roaming the delightful streets of York talking the toot with both visitors and residents about the grim and gristly history of this magnificently macabre city of mine so I am not short of a tale or two.

Over the last six years I have worked as a tour guide, be it rolling around the roads inside an old fashioned tour bus or walking

the Snickleways, Shambles and bloodstained streets.
