Ghosts of The Golden Fleece - York's Most Haunted Pub
Being an ancient building which is mentioned in the York Archives as far back as 1503, the Golden Fleece stands directly opposite York's most historic and picturesque street, the shambles.
The rear yard is named after Lady Alice Peckett whose husband, John, owned the premises as well as being Lord Mayor of York around 1702.
Many guests have reported seeing the late Lady Peckett wandering the endless corridors and staircases in the wee, small hours and, including ghostly apparitions and moving furniture, hers is just one of the five resident spirits.

We host an open acoustic night every Wednesday evening at 8.30pm in the Merchants Bar, and every Thursday evening in the Shambles Bar - just turn up and play! And our Acoustic Band play the last Friday of every month!
