Many museums and galleries are reopening with safety measures in place. Please remember to check each venue's guidelines before visiting.

Explore the gardens of Chawton House after dark on a guided tour this Halloween.

Discover the creatures that only emerge at night and learn about Chawton House’s eerie family history. Learn about the macabre myth surrounding the Library Terrace (perhaps there is someone buried there...) and look out for witches marks and willow weirdness. The tour ends with a visit to the Knight family’s old pet cemetery.

Bring a torch – things are going to get dark…

Please note, spaces on the tour is limited and we ask you stay within your own bubble. A hot drink before the tour in included in the price.
