Enjoy an atmospheric and immersive sound and light adventure fit for the whole family this Halloween with the Wild Raven Ghost Walk at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, which takes place nightly 28 – 31 October.

Follow the atmospheric trail through the castle’s spectacular gardens and encounter characters from Hillsborough’s past, as the ghostly tales of Hillsborough’s haunting history are reimagined in this unique after-hours experience.

Discover the stories of Nancy Stott - murdered in 1825 where the castle’s South Terrace now stands, the ghoulish tale of the Greek Prince whose body mysteriously disappeared from his coffin, and stumble across Lady Alice’s Ghost Bride Choir, who will be entertaining plucky attendees with a host of spooky songs.

End your walk in the Stable Yard with a spectacular finale of a re-enactment of Hercat the Illusionist’s famous illusions, recreated by Cahoots Theatre NI.

Ticketing information:

Visitors will be allocated a specific time slot and follow a self-led one-way trail through the gardens that lasts for approximately 30 minutes.
