Ghastly Ghouls and Haunting Ghosts at the Kiplin Hall Halloween Spooktacular!
Walk in the woods – if you dare! The Grey Lady of the Woods is searching for her lover, and who is that by the pond making her way to the summerhouse? The ghostly spectre by the pets’ graves could be Pickles, or is it Punch? Search the woods to find the apparitions hiding there, but beware, don’t go alone!!
In the house, round up the Dragons and take them up to the Mighty Wizard's Workshop! Lots of scary (and not-so-scary) fun for children and grown-ups.
Halloween Spooktacular Saturday 21 October – Wednesday 25 October & Saturday 28 October - Wednesday 1 November 10am - 5pm
Gardens and Tea Room open 10am, House opens 11am. All close at 5pm.
Normal admission prices apply.

Many tales are told of sounds, smells and sightings in and around the historic Hall: the echo of footsteps and sobbing in the ground floor Drawing Room; a woman in the long, narrow servants’ tunnel; a whiff of pipe smoke in the Second World War Kitchen; a hint of cologne detected in the Upper Drawing Room and many more unexplained tales that emanate from the past.
Kiplin Hall is steeped with the history of nearly four hundred years of life and death, and many spine-tingling accounts of eerie experiences have been recorded over the years. Book early for these fascinating tours of Kiplin Hall and extraordinary tales of its ghostly inhabitants.
Booking is essential for the Ghost Tours as places are limited to 25 per tour. Cost is £11 for adults and £8 for children, who must be aged eight or over and not of a nervous disposition.
Please telephone 01748 818178 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
