29th January – 26th February – Winter Ghost Tours at Hoghton Tower (Selected Dates)

Posted on 1st Mar 2021 | Mark

Ascend the long drive of reputedly the third most haunted house in Britain where we will be waiting for you.

Silent torchbearers take you on the ghost tour through the darkened halls of the Tower, where you may encounter spectres from the past and you will be told about the ghostly happenings from across the centuries.

Venture, if you dare, through the underground passages where footsteps from another time may echo alongside your own. Do you see the black dog who haunts the Well House?

Greet Angry Peter, stare into the painting where mysterious faces may reveal themselves, before finally grasping the opportunity to reflect on what you have seen and heard.

This is a fundraising event in aid of Hoghton Tower Preservation Trust (Registered Charity No. 508357). Thank you for your support in preserving and restoring this beautiful building and the grounds in which it stands.

The Tea Room will be open for refreshments of hot and cold drinks and wrapped confectionary only from 5:30pm. There will also be small bar serving bottles of beer, cider and wine.

The Ghost Tour will start promptly at 6.30pm, and will finish by approximately 8pm, after which time the Tower will be closed.

The tour is aimed at adults and is not suitable for anyone under the age of 16. At least one member of the party should be over the age of 21.

The Tower will be extremely cold this time of year and this adds to the ghostly experience of the tour.

Please be aware that no photography / detection or recording equipment of any kind is permitted during the tour.
