Halloween Nights

Dare you visit Castell Coch for a fun, otherworldly night of tales and terror?

Bram Stoker – an author of horror fiction – has been offered the use of Castell Coch as a quiet place to work on his latest novel.  Inspired by a recent visit to Transylvania he plans to write about nightmare creatures said to terrify the population there.

Known as “vampires” these are zombie-like beings who suck the blood of the living to maintain their Satanic lifestyles.  

Stoker has started work on his manuscript but is horrified to find that a vampire seems to have followed him back from Transylvania.

Now this terrifying creature, known as Count Dracula, is loose somewhere in the castle.  The celebrated vampire hunter Dr Lewis Van Helsing is searching for the monster and our guests must help to find him to save the world from “the Prince of Darkness”.

During their search the guests come across characters from Stoker’s Dracula who will interact with them and with the tour guide.

Tours at 6.30pm, 7.15pm, 8.00pm and 8.45pm.

Booking is essential. Please book tickets by telephoning the castle on 029 2081 0101.
