Ghost tours

Warder and 'ghost'

Ghost tours have finished ... but will resume on Halloween - 31 October 2014!

Find out what spooked some of the palace's past residents as you are guided around the palace courtyards at night.

Hear the stories of ghostly apparitions and paranormal activity. Experience the unique atmosphere of Henry VIII's Apartments and creep down the infamous Haunted Gallery on your own!

This is an evening walking tour that includes external courtyards, cloisters and some apartment interiors. It lasts 1½ to 1¾ hours.
Tickets include one warm drink on arrival at the Tiltyard Café prior to the tour starting.
