Ghost Tour

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

Tonight, you can tour the darkened halls of Hoghton Tower. Encounter spectres from the past and hear about ghostly happenings from across the centuries. Venture through the passages where footsteps from another time may echo alongside your own. Will you see the black dog that haunts the Well House?
