Check out my Dark Chester tour via the new Kayak Chester travel guide

My Dark Chester tour resumes this week after a winter break.

I’m back with new ideas, fresh takes on Chester folk tales and plenty of fire-and-brimstone dark-tourism heritage from my historic home city.

I’m also up for new collaborations and editorial coverage, including being featured in the new Chester guide from travel search engine, Kayak.

Look out for news and updates over the weeks to come.
