Northwood House: The Halloween Haunted History Tour (with Author Tim Wander)
31st October £17.50
Join us on Halloween night for a special spooky evening featuring ghost stories, myths, legends and supernatural tales associated with Northwood House, the Island’s most haunted venue.
This is far more than just a walk though a darkened building on Halloween night – it’s a chance to unravel the history of the house and to find out why this rambling Georgian manor maybe so haunted as you tour the many rooms and passageways at night by candlelight. See the cellars, tunnels, empty servant’s rooms and Nuns cells. The House has been a convent, a Red Cross hospital and a boarding school…. and has, of course, for over 200 years hosted the wildest parties attended by Royalty from all over Europe. Each has made its mark and must have left memories in the very fabric of the building.
Island historian and House expert Tim Wander will be your guide on Halloween night, telling you all about the haunted history of this iconic Island building… escorting you through the labyrinth of corridors and cellars. Only stopping to tell you who once lived there, and maybe discover if they still do.
Come with an open mind. Expert nothing, but be prepared for everything. Tim will tell you how the paranormal pervades every corner of the house, what the years of professional ghost hunters have seen and how science might offer… just some of the answers.
Limited tickets. One night only (additional dates maybe added if demand dictates).
Ticket price: £17.50/person

Narrow stairs will be used to access the cellars and first floor of the building, so some parts of the experience will not be suitable/accessible for those with walking difficulties or needing a wheelchair for which we apologise in advance.
Free parking is available in the rotunda car park, with entrance through the main rotunda doors.
Signed copies of Tim Wanders book “Ghosts of Northwood House” will be available to purchase on the night.
