Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit?

Spend a spooky evening walking around Hampton Court Palace through dark courtyards, lamp-lit cloisters and shadowed rooms.

An expert guide will share spine-tingling tales of where all the ghostly apparitions have previously appeared, and then send you tip-toeing through Henry VIII's Haunted Gallery — all alone! They also offer a few family-friendly tours which are a bit less scary.

Winter evenings can be very cold by the river so your ticket also includes a warm drink in the darkened Tiltyard Cafe.

Craig has been on this tour himself and thoroughly recommends it. Read his review before you go so you can see what it's like. You should be aware that it's not a full tour of Hampton Court. The whole thing takes place in pitch black darkness, so if you want to properly appreciate the rooms then you should return during the daytime. The best room in the palace is the famous Chapel Royal, and you'll have to attend a choral mass to see the best of that one. Read Craig's daytime review to see what all the other rooms are like.
