Samlesbury Hall, Lancashire
Ghost Tours at Hoghton Tower
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..
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.
The Tower will be extremely cold this time of year and this adds to the ghostly experience of the tour. Please ensure that you are wearing sufficiently warm, outdoor clothing and comfortable shoes, suitable for walking on uneven, historic surfaces. The tour involves several flights of stairs including those into the underground passages and some without handrails.
Doors open from 5:30pm and food is served at 6pm followed by the Ghost Tour. We expect the tour to be finished by 9pm, after which time the site will be closed.
This is a fundraising event in aid of Hoghton Tower Preservation Trust (Registered Charity No. 508357). Thank you for your support in preserving and restoring this beautiful building and the grounds in which it stands.
Please be aware that no photography / detection or recording equipment of any kind is permitted during the tour.
