Description

Enjoy an atmospheric and immersive sound and light adventure fit for the whole family this Halloween

with the Wild Raven Ghost Walk at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, which takes place nightly 28 – 31 October.

Follow the atmospheric trail through the castle’s spectacular gardens and encounter characters from Hillsborough’s past, as the ghostly tales of Hillsborough’s haunting history are reimagined in this unique after-hours experience.

Discover the stories of Nancy Stott - murdered in 1825 where the castle’s South Terrace now stands, the ghoulish tale of the Greek Prince whose body mysteriously disappeared from his coffin, and stumble across Lady Alice’s Ghost Bride Choir, who will be entertaining plucky attendees with a host of spooky songs.

End your walk in the Stable Yard with a spectacular finale of a re-enactment of Hercat the Illusionist’s famous illusions, recreated by Cahoots Theatre NI.

Visitors will be allocated a specific time slot and follow a self-led one-way trail through the gardens that lasts for approximately 30 minutes.

For the safety, health and comfort of our visitors, staff and volunteers, we continue to operate with many of our COVID-19 safety measures in place, including managing visitor numbers so our sites remain safe places to visit. To guarantee entry we ask members and visitors to pre-book tickets and timed entry slots in advance.

We will also welcome walk-ups wherever possible. We expect and recommend that face masks are worn in indoor spaces and that visitors continue to maintain a respectful distance from staff and other visitors not in their group.
