There are lots of interactive elements: from a touchscreen; videos to choose from; a feast to sit at; a throne to perch on and a four poster bed to lie on. You can take part in a written witch trial; go in the stocks or try your hand at quill writing in the school room.

Valentine’s Day

11th and 14th February 2023

Valentine’s Day, also called St. Valentine’s Day, holiday (February 14) when lovers express their affection with greetings and gifts. Given their similarities, it has been suggested that the holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. The festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery.

The day became associated with romantic love in the 14th and 15th centuries when notions of courtly love flourished,  by association with the “lovebirds” of early spring.

To celebrate this festival, on Saturday 11th February and Tuesday 14th February our (romantic ‘cuddle in the dark’) Ghost Tours will be taking place and, each couple will receive a red rose (subject to availability).
