Linlithgow Palace is offering visitors the unique opportunity to see the historic site after dark.

On October 25 and 26 and November 1 and 2, the Palace will host a series of ‘Fright Nights’ where visitors can meet some of the less savoury characters who once walked its halls.

As night falls, groups of visitors will be given a guided tour of the Palace and will have the opportunity to witness some of the more gruesome events in Scotland’s past, from the outbreak of the plague to witch trials, all brought to life by costumed performers.

Not recommended for children or the faint-hearted, this is a great way to see the darker side of the Palace and celebrate Hallowe’en.

Lorna Ewan, head of 
visitor experience, said: “This is a great opportunity to learn more about some of the gruesome events in palace history. Fright Night is sure to live up to its name.”

Fright Night will take place at 7.30pm, 8.30pm and 9.30pm on all four nights.

Tickets must be booked in advance and cost £10 with a discount for Historic Scotland members. Visit www.historic-scotland.gov.uk/events to purchase tickets.
