Take a trip back through Carmarthen's "horrible history" and meet murderers and their victims. Visit the sites of grisly executions. Discover dark secrets from bygone days - and find out where the ghosts walk!
Along the way take part in some unusual magical experiments involving ghosts, murder weapons, antique photographs and a witch trial.
Winner of Carmarthenshire Tourism Association's "Visitors Experience of the Year" the Creepy Carmarthen Tour is a unique introduction to the weird and wonderful history of the oldest town in Wales.
From the ancient Romans through to modern times the darker side has left its scars and marks on the town which are all explored in this illustrated ramble around the oldest and spookiest parts.
Starting on the steps of the historic Guildhall, during this two-hour long walk around the centre of Carmarthen you will hear unsettling stories from the past and visit the very place where a medieval bishop was burnt to death, stand where crowds watched public executions and sample life in the cells where murderers were held before the death sentence was passed.
The Spooky Town Tour includes a visit the building which housed the town's original Victorian Police Station set within the walls of the ancient Castle. The setting for dozens of overnight "ghost watches" the building has its own unique night-time atmosphere which you can share.
Suitable for the whole family, and wheel-chair friendly, the public tours run most Wednesday nights from Easter to the end of September. Private tours are available all year round.
