Bolsover CastleSUITABLE FOR
Do you dare explore Bolsover Castle in the dark this Halloween?
Built on an ancient burial ground and overlooking a town once described as “the Satanic capital of Britain” Bolsover Castle is one of the country’s most haunted sites. In fact, there are so many reports of paranormal activity that staff keep a special 'ghost book' for visitors to record their experiences.
Join our storytellers as they guide you on a bone-chilling journey through the past. With tales of ghosts, supernatural sightings and horrors from history, this is not a night for the faint-hearted.
Will you come across the ghost of Sir Charles himself, who is said to still wander the corridors of his former home, or will you catch the distinct aroma of horses coming from the empty riding school? Don’t forget to bring a torch – things are going to get dark…
These tours are suitable for those aged 16+.
Please note that the event will take place outdoors only in the dark, and we will not be entering any indoor spaces such as the Little Castle. Please bring a torch with you to use during the tour. We recommend you wrap up warm and wear comfortable, sturdy footwear. Remember to bring a face covering with you for any indoor spaces such as our shops and cafes.
Please also read our event FAQs to help plan your visit.
