Spooky Tours

Wednesday 16th October - Thursday 31st October

Our popular Spooky Tours are returning, with local ghostly expert Martin Tempest, from Wednesday 16th to Thursday 31st October (excluding Sundays).

The tours are designed to be scary but fun. Although not recommended for children under 11, we leave it up to parents to decide as you know your children best!


The tour takes place in the evening with low level lighting across uneven surfaces, steps and in the open air in all weathers. You will be on your feet for up to 50 minutes so please wear suitable clothing and footwear.

Please note that the House will be closed for filming from 14 -24 October.

This will affect the House and the Orangery Restaurant only. The Gardens, Garden Café, the Halloween Trail and Craft Workshops are all unaffected.

The House will be closed from 14 October – 24 October (inclusive).

The Orangery will be closed from 16 October – 22 October (but open on Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 October)

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. All areas of Burghley will be open as usual from 26 October.
