Make this October 31 one to remember with the Halloween Ghost Tour Late Night Special. Listen to suitably spine-tingling commentary while taking in some of the palace’s most ghoulish locations. The tour begins at 10.30pm. Tickets: £35 (minimum aged 18).
Join the early evening Family Ghost Tour for family-friendly stories and even Hampton Court’s own species of spider to discover. Fun for all ages on October 31, November 4 and January 6. Tickets: £14 adults / £7 children (minimum age 8).
On the ghost tours take a ghostly gallivant around the palace. Learn about the Tudor royal nurse whose spirit is said to stalk her former apartments, the mysterious figure caught on palace CCTV at night and much more. Selected dates in November, January and February 6.30pm to 8.30pm and 7.15pm to 9.15pm. Tickets: £27.50 (minimum age 12).
