Experience Llandaff’s ghosts

Get spooked on a Cardiff Ghost and History Walk


A snapping twig, or torchlight on a gravestone can unnerve the most levelheaded of people.


Take a two hour walk through field, forest, and Coffin Alley in Llandaff to discover spooky happenings, an imposing cathedral, and old graveyards, all narrated by storyteller extraordinaire, Jim Cowan.

The first walk happened two years ago, and nobody turned up. Yet today Jim says he is turning people away. Jim is not a medium or Cardiff’s answer to Derek Acorah, but he is a wonderfully enthusiastic storyteller who captivates an audience with ease.

Whether you believe in the supernatural or not, the walks provide the chance to experience a wholly different aspect of an area, and to learn some fascinating information.

As Jim himself says, “There’s atmosphere, history, and a hell of a lot of ghosts. This is theatre in the dark.”
