Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of Hampton Court Palace  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

This is the family version of Hampton Court's popular ghost tour (ie. it's a bit less scary!), where you will spend an evening walking around the dark courtyards, cloisters and interiors.

The expert guide will share some spine-tingling tales along the way, about where the ghostly apparitions appeared.

Craig has been on the standard ghost tour (not this family one), and thought that it was well worth the money. You might like to read his full review here — but remember that the family tour is slightly different.

Be aware that this is not a full tour of Hampton Court. The whole thing takes place in pitch black darkness, and if you want to properly appreciate the rooms then you should go back during the daytime. (You can read Craig's daytime review of Hampton Court here.)
