Restless Spirit Tour
Dash Beardsley's Restless Spirits Tour is Dash's sequel to the Original Ghost Tour on the Strand. This tour focuses less on historical information and delves into more modern events, stories, and reports of paranormal activity. Explore areas of The Strand, not included in the original tour, to hear about these truly unique and horrifying stories.
This tour has a bit of a darker feel than the Original Ghost Tour on the Strand and does include some unsavory stories and subject matter, which is most appropriate for older audiences. We do curb the language for youger tour-goers, but we consider the tour PG13.
