Solve a spooky mystery at the Tower this October Half-term

This Halloween, spirits of the Tower of London have been inadvertently released and are roaming the castle. Among them, an unknown force is hellbent on taking the Tower, threatening the Realm itself. The adage 'Who has the Tower has the Power?' has never been truer.

A team of Ghost Raiders are on site, but they urgently need your help to investigate spooky occurrences and defeat the spirit trying to capture the Tower.

Trumpets from Anne Boleyn's coronation can be heard near her old apartments, tobacco has been smelt near Raleigh’s Walk, and something terrible is afoot in the Salt Tower. Never have so many hauntings taken place at one time, and it seems that the ghosts are trying to communicate the identity of one vengeful spirit.

Who does it belong to and can you stop them to protect the Tower of London?

Accessibility

This event consists of several interactive elements. Although not all of these are in step-free locations, the experience can be completed by visiting only the locations that are. Please speak to a member of staff when you pick up a trail near the entrance and they will be able to show you a step-free route.
