Questions?

As we don’t use tricks or special effects, we cannot guarantee activity. However, given the history of the Estate and the activities we will be undertaking, it is more than possible. Each group will have a different and completely unpredictable experience.

We are extremely lucky to have exclusive access to the main house. We will also visit some other locations nearby.

We don’t want to give away all of the surprises, but there will be a variety of settings, some with more or less light than others.

As we will be doing a variety of different techniques and methods we would prefer you use the tools and equipment we will be sharing with you. Many of the things you will learn can be applied to future investigations. 

Alone in the Dark is not about jump scares or cheap thrills. We are going deeper than that. This experience is a thoughtful and interactive evening inside an incredible and historic haunted landmark, where we will consider the nature of hauntings and reach out into the abyss.

To keep the experience intimate and personal, each investigation is limited to a maximum of 12 guests. Due to the small group size and exclusive access to the site, tickets are very limited.

Sadly due to the age of the heritage buildings, this experience is not accessible.
