This October half term, take a tour of Carlisle Castle after hours.

Guided by torchlight our team will bring to life some of the creepy, gruesome and surprising tales of the most besieged castle in the country.

Explore the dungeons, discover the intriguing story of the licking stones and hear about the walled up skeletons which were discovered by workmen in the Captain's Tower.

Bring a torch, wrap up warm and stay close by!
