For those with an insatiable thirst for additional knowledge
GHOST HUNTS
For the adventurer with an urge to leave the warm sanctuary of the armchair and venture into the field.

HAUNTED EVENINGS
Astonishingly, York seems to be devoid of its own ghost hunting group (although if they exist and we are merely uninformed, please make haste to correct this deficiency in our knowledge) but Haunted Evenings organise events within the Guildhall and the Golden Fleece, amongst many other nationwide venues, and would be worth contacting with regard to potential future vigils.


FROM THE OTHER SIDE
An additional organisation that have ventured into the haunted realm of York in the past.


VICTORIANA
All manner of Victorian themed wonders…

KIRKGATE
Within the York Castle Museum is a splendid recreation of a York Victorian street, complete with shops, a police cell, a schoolroom and a Hansom cab.


THE THRILLING ADVENTURES OF LOVELACE & BABBAGE
A highly amusing comic strip accompanied by a wealth of Lovelace and Babbage information – all courtesy of the extraordinarily talented Sidney Padua.

RETRO VECTORS
For those of a creative persuassion this is an excellent source of wondrous images and objects. All are royalty free, some are free of charge and for those images that require reimbursement you will only have to part with the extraordinarily low sum of two dollars. (For those unfamiliar with the eccentric nature of the currency employed within the colonies that translates to approximately one pound and fifty pence. This, of course, will vary dependent upon the fluctuating fortunes of the empire.


RECOMMENDED EMPORIUMS
Purveyors of fine quality goods for the discerning customer

CATACOMB EMPORIUM
A showcase and retail outlet for the rather splendid work of interior designer Charles Joseph Sykes, who appears to have a commendably artistic appreciation of the human skull.
