Guided Spooky Tours

Spooky Tours of Samlesbury Hall, Browsholme Hall and Townley Hall.
Samlesbury Hall (1 hour)

Samlesbury Hall was built in 1322 and over the years has witnessed two murders, three suspicious deaths, a beheading, a suicide and some acts of pure cruelty.

As we explore this national treasure every room will convey a different story.

The white lady who lost her life due to a broken heart, her ghost is a frequent visitor. Upstairs the priest room, scene of an execution in 1584 and chillingly blood still stains the floor.

The long gallery is where the Samlesbury Hall witches were bound and taken to Lancaster to stand trial alongside the Pendle witches in 1612.
Late night sounds of ghostly footsteps and creaking floorboards can be heard of young Harrison who took his own life in the 1870s.

This tour is a must for those who enjoy ghost stories and the thrill of walking the floorboards of an 800 year historic building.

Cost: £10.00 per adult and £5.00 for Children under 13.
