Spend a spooky evening walking around Hampton Court Palace, being led around the dark courtyards, cloisters and interiors.

The expert guide will share some spine-tingling tales of where the ghostly apparitions appeared, as you experience the chilling atmosphere of Henry VIII's Haunted Gallery firsthand!

The ticket also includes a warm drink at the darkened Tiltyard Cafe, prior to the beginning of the tour -- because winter evenings are very cold by the river (especially when there are ghosts around!).

Craig has been on this very tour himself, and thought that it was well worth the money. You can read his full review here. You should be aware that it's not a full tour of Hampton Court though. 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 here.) But if you want some spine-tingling chills and some genuine shocks then give it a go!
The one room that you don't get to see on the ghost tour which is well worth a return trip is the famous Chapel Royal. But you'll get the best out of that if you attend a choral mass.
