Castle Way,


There's nothing more deliciously chilling on a dark autumn night than a captivatingly whispered ghost story, and nowhere more evocative to hear such tales than the surroundings of a historic building.

This October, we are publishing Eight Ghosts: The English Heritage Book of New Ghost Stories. Written by eight of the country's foremost novelists and short story writers, each of the ghost stories in this brand new collection is set within and inspired by an English Heritage property.

Now we're offering a special opportunity to attend author events at some of the properties that inspired Eight Ghosts: from Sarah Perry at Audley End to Mark Haddon at the York Cold War Bunker. The exclusive events include an author reading and the chance to experience the site which inspired their tale in a twilight tour.
