Ghostly Tales

Aston Hall

  • Capacity: 30 pupils
  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Cost (per pupil): £4.50
Book Session

Search for evidence of ghostly activity at Aston Hall.

Pupils will hear the Hall’s spookiest stories as they explore the house, equipped with dowsing rods and worksheets to document findings.

Experience paranormal activity such as lights flickering, strange sounds, and unusual objects strewn around the rooms. 

This activity is ideal for the S.P.O.O.C.S. topic.

Please note: Please make children aware before their visit that they will be hearing ghost stories and that they will witness ghostly activity around the house. It is important that children are prepared for these activities beforehand so they do not become shocked or frightened on the day. Also do remember that this session was designed for children and therefore is suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils.

(School visits to Aston Hall are available Tuesday - Friday.)
