Really impressive tour. We were scared just walking up to the entrance as the building is very spooky in the dark. Our guide was amazing and we screamed so much! Not sure I would have the stamina to do it again though!

A fabulous and inspiring place to visit by day made more memorable by a night time Spooky Tour - both highly recommended and neither to be missed!

Thank you for query. We are owned by an independent charity, not the National Trust and so we do not accept National Trust membership for admission.
