Castle Ghost Tour & Tapestry Room Sit
**2021 – Due to current government restrictions this package is not available at the current time, although please enquire direct with the office at Muncaster regarding booking dates later on this year**

Muncaster Castle is reputedly one of the most haunted buildings anywhere in the UK. Scientists have been researching the “ghosts” of Muncaster Castle since 1992 and are still unable to explain some of the strange occurrences reported at Muncaster.
Dare you spend a night in the Tapestry Room to decide for yourself?

This is a unique opportunity for up to 6 people* to stay overnight in the Tapestry Room. To set the scene, your visit will begin late evening, with a private tour of the Castle. Your party will be immersed in the tales and legends of Muncaster – an introduction to our ghostly residents.

Tom Fool lived here once; some believe he still does. Tales are also told of The White Lady and of a woman dressed in black. After your tour, settle down for an all-night watch in our notorious Tapestry Room, with its Flemish hangings, rich Georgian furniture, and Elizabethan fireplace. To ensure you don’t miss a moment, coffee will be provided.

The following morning, you can enjoy a full English breakfast and reflect on your evening and swap stories. This will be served in the Courtyard Café at the castle or our hotel in Ravenglass village. We ask all guests to complete a log, sharing their experiences. We can’t guarantee spectacular spectres, but do hope you enjoy high spirits during a unique night to remember.


  • Saturday/Bank Holiday Sunday night – £499 per group

A deposit to secure the date of £100 will be required at time of booking and the balance 4 weeks prior to arrival

*We can allow an absolute maximum of 8 people to stay, but because the Tapestry Room is a small bedroom, we do recommend only 6 for your own comfort. Please note also that all participants must be over 17 years of age.

Ghost sits can be booked most dates through the year, subject to other events taking place in the Castle. To check availability or to book, please contact us on 01229 717614 or send us an email.
