Through darkest corridors, and haunted rooms, join your guide at Newstead Abbey, ancestral home of the Poet Lord Byron.

The beautiful Newstead Abbey was first built to salve a king's conscience and make good with his God for the murder of Thomas Becket. Later the estate was sold by Henry VIII to the Byron family, and is known most famously known as the home of 'mad, bad, and dangerous to know' poet Lord Byron. Throughout its years the abbey has served as inspiration to writers like Washington Irving, writer of Sleepy Hollow, and is loved by psychic investigators.

The tour is led by Madame Parboiled (Kath George), who has worked at the Abbey as a museum guide and as part of the management team. 
During this behind the scenes tour there will be no tricks, gimmicks or props, just tales of one of Nottinghams most beautiful and haunted buildings... these are the stories that the staff tell each other, the ones that begin with "you will never believe..."

You will be provided with a free glass of wine or soft drink to steady your nerves.

- Lots of stairs and dark corridors.
- Free parking in front of the Abbey.
