Dare you venture into the unknown and go searching for ghosts of the past at Pontefract Castle?

The castle will be brought to life by ghosts of the past and you can take part in these special ghost walks taking place on Tuesday 31 October, Friday 10 November and Friday 24 November.

If you are brave enough to take on the supernatural and see what goes bump in the night, the Pontefract Heritage Group will see you at the castle!

Book early for this spooky experience, tickets are available from the Castle Gift Shop.

Please note the 19.00 performance is aimed at families while the 20.30 performance is a little more gruesome and is not suitable for children.
