Tour Information

 John has an amazing knowledge of local history particularly with all things spooky and macabre!  You will be entertained, educated and delighted as you join him

on his latest tour of Canterbury to explore the dark side

of this wonderfully historic town.

Owen Drew the "notorious highwayman"


Owen worked along the Sturry Road

in the city in 1726, and having been captured he had his ear nailed to a hitching post and was given a knife

to defend himself. Rather than waiting

for release the next morning, he

cut his own ear off to escape and

bled to death closet o the old

Northgate in Canterbury.


Just one of the many fascinating

stories that you'll hear as you

join the Horridly Historic Tour.
