Love ghost stories? Want to explore some haunted ruins?
Less than an hour’s drive from Birmingham, Guy’s Cliffe House in Warwick are opening their doors with a rare opportunity for Brummies to explore the haunted ruins at their Ghost Walk event next month.
From humble beginnings in the 5th Century as a secluded place of worship in the 5th century, the Grade II listed building has been developed in different styles with numerous additions to the property over its fascinating history. Most famously, Sir Guy of Warwick reputably died in ‘Guy’s Cave’ in 970AD and it has been used as a Red Cross Voluntary Aid Detachment Hospital in WW1 and as a Boys Home by the Waifs and Strays Society during WW2. Standing on an artificially levelled terrace above a cliff, most of the house has now fallen into disrepair and has been the source of many ghost sightings and stories of unexplained phenomena.
During their unique Ghost Walk event, hear first-hand encounters along with ghostly myths and tales as you are guided through the stunning set of ruins that the general public rarely have access to.
There are two tours for evening:
The first tour will start at 4.30pm until 6.00pm, followed by a jacket potato supper and buffet (6.00pm till 7.00pm) in the refectory.
The second tour will start at 6.00pm in the refectory with a jacket potato supper and buffet with the tour starting at 7.00pm until 8.30pm.
