What to bring and wear
Please wear sensible, flat shoes and bring a torch in case the ghost interfere with our lights.
Steep hill leading up to the castle and uneven steps. Also changes of levels, steep and uneven steps within the cstle.
Tours from 8pm are for grown ups only. Ghost Tours are popular and places are limited, so we're afraid tickets are non-refundable in any circumstances unless we cancel the event. Please wear flat shoes as the floors are uneven and can be damaged by high heels. Please be considerate of your tour guide and other visitors. You will be asked to leave if your behavior is inappropriate. Please keep mobile phones and torches switched off for the duration of the tour. The tours are recommended for ages 12 and over and can be scary. We don't want to upset our ghosts with unhappy children, so if it all gets too much we may ask them and their guardian to leave the tour. Please arrive in good time. If you miss your time slot we will do our best to get you onto another tour but this is not guaranteed. During the tour there will be uneven flooring, confined spaces, low lighting levels and scares!
