The Witching Hour
Immerse yourself in the 17th Century and delve into the dark past of witchcraft and sorcery during an overnight stay at Hampton Court Palace.
Suspicion and fear are brewing. Witches and all things wicked have cast their spell over the land. To the King and his subjects, this is the work of Satan and it must be stopped.
Explore the palace by night and learn about this frightening time in European History.
Upon arrival at 18:30, you will encounter a number of historic characters who will welcome you to Court, before you indulge in a hearty meal.
Your evening's entertainment will include live interpretation and a tour of the palace before you settle in for the night in one of the King's State Apartments.
Saturday night and sleeping arrangements
We will provide you with a sleeping mat but encourage you to bring your own sleeping equipment such as air beds, camp beds, sleeping bags and duvets. It can get quite chilly so cosy pyjamas and socks are highly recommended.
We will also provide you with a complimentary set of earplugs. We know you don’t snore, but others have a cheeky habit of it!
Awaken on Sunday morning and be seated for breakfast before you return to the 21st Century. Enjoy the palace at your own leisure with a complimentary ticket.
Your ticket includes:
As this is a special evening, you are invited to arrive in historical costume if you wish, but we ask that your outfit has returned to the 21st century for Sunday.
We politely request that no alcohol, professional photographic equipment or ghost-hunting apparatus are brought to this event.
The minimum age for this event is 18.
