One of Britain’s most haunted houses is creaking open its doors to lift the lid on the ghostly goings-on which lurk within its walls.
Hoghton Tower, the magnificent 16th century house near Preston, Lancashire, has earned the reputation of being Britain’s third most haunted property – and now it is offering visitors a chance to experience it for themselves on selected dates in January and February.
Ghost-hunters will ascend the one-mile driveway with a sense of foreboding, before silent torchbearers take them on a tour through the darkened halls of the Tower.
Will you encounter spectres from the past as you are told about haunting happenings which have occurred across the centuries?
Venture through underground passages where footsteps from another time may echo alongside your own – and look out for the black dog who haunts the Well House.
Greet Angry Peter and stare into the painting where mysterious faces may reveal themselves, before finally grasping the opportunity to reflect on what you have seen and heard.
The tour is aimed at adults and is not suitable for anyone under the age of 16. At least one member of the party should be over the age of 21. Included in the £35 tour package is a two-course meal.
Doors open from 5.30pm and food is served at 6pm, followed by the Ghost Tour, which finishes around 9pm.
Ghost Tours are running on selected dates from Friday, January 27 until Saturday, February 18. For more information visit www.hoghtontower.co.uk
