Take a terrifying tour of the castle grounds by candlelight if you dare!
Watch out for witches, mad monarchs, plague doctors and bats!

Dare to go underground to visit the depths of the cellar and see which creatures reside inside?

If you are brave enough to make it in, just make sure that you can get out!

A frighteningly good way to see the castle brought back to life by ghosts of the past.

In association with Pontefract Heritage Group.
