Gunby Hall is gearing up for some ghostly goings-on next weekend.

On Sunday, October 27 the National Trust property will be haunted for a day.

Once a year, the hall is ‘taken over’ by its resident ghosts, which normally don’t show their faces.

The hall will be dark and sparsely lit with scary noises coming from dark corners.

The tea-room will also serve seasonal treats and the gardens still offer plenty of interest this time of year.

“We are getting quite used to being visited by the Gunby Ghosts now,” said House Manager, Astrid Gatenby. “In return for letting them scare our visitors once a year, they have promised to leave them alone for the rest of the season.

“We do hope our visitors will enjoy meeting the ghosts and will dare to explore all our three floors.

“There will be sweeties for brave children who come to visit as this day is very suited for families.”

Gunby Hall & Gardens will be open from 11am, with last admission at 4pm. Normal admissions apply – free for National Trust members.
