The ghost walk is an abiding feature of the contemporary tourist landscape in many parts of the world, and its popularity shows no sign of diminishing. The narrative structures and pedestrian rhythms of this leisure experience are strongly indebted to the literary ghost story, and the chapter explores the ways in which the work of Henry James and M. R. James anticipate the pattern of wandering and digression encouraged by the contemporary ghost walk. Ghost walks, like ghost stories, mark the enduring appeal of a story that lingers, or of a resonant place that makes one pause.
