On Saturday October 31, National Trust’s Gunby Hall will be haunted again by ghastly ghosts for a scary Halloween opening.

Carefully make your way through the three floors of the house, which will be dark and spooky with lots of cobwebs and eerie noises, and meet the Gunby ghosts who like to get up to mischief this time of year.

If you have been brave and made it out of the frightening cold dark basement unscathed, you will have earned some sweets as a reward. Maybe go for a nice walk in the lovely eight acre gardens too, or enjoy a cuppa with some cake in the tea-room afterwards to steady your nerves.

Gunby Visitor Experience Manager Astrid Gatenby said: “It doesn’t take much to make the house feel haunted and a bit menacing, especially when the shutters are closed and there is creepy music being played.

“Our volunteers enjoy making our visitors jump a little and we always have a lot of fun at Halloween.

“This year we will be helped again by some very talented ghostly students from Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar school in Alford. We love it when visitors join in the spirit of the day and come dressed up in scary costumes too.’

The haunted hall is open on Saturday October 31 from 11am until 5pm (last admission: 4pm).

Bring the family along for a chilling visit - but it might be too scary for very little ones.

Normal admission charges apply, and entry is free for National Trust members.

Gunby Hall & Gardens are located between Spilsby and Skegness on the A158 off the Gunby roundabout. For more information ring 01754 890102 or look on
