Mystery and intrigue
Many of our houses and gardens hold secrets ripe for exploring. Whether you are investigating a secret passage, baffled by a maze or intrigued by a resident ghost, you'll soon discover that there is more to us than meets the eye.
Here's some of our favourites:
Visitors of all ages will enjoy the challenge that the 176-year-old cherry laurel maze presents.
Powis Castle is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a man dressed in a hat and gold-laced suit. The castle's staff have often seen fleeting figures around the corridors and piano music has been heard floating from the empty piano stool...
Residents of Oxburgh Hall must have had the perfect opportunity for playing hide and seek! The hall boasts a priest hole and secret doors which today's visitors to the hall can investigate.
A visit to Fountain's Abbey may include a ghostly performance from the monks of the Chapel of Nine Altars, a glimpse of the blue figure that haunts the hall or you may spot a man emerging from the wall.
