Foyle Festival, Londonderry

The ominous creaking of the tracks, the haunting echoes of the horn, a night time ride on an old ghostly steam train is enough to put the shivers up anyone’s spine.

Tales From The London Eye

Mr Porky’s deadly meat factory is the setting for this frightful adventure. Explore the twisting corridors and shadowed halls of this butchers haunt. Avoid the perils of Doomesgate Prison and prepare yourself for a live séance that is if you dare!
Explore the grounds of Britain’s most haunted castle. The gruesome history is brought to life as actors, illuminations, transform the castle and ghostly sound affects. If you feel especially brave try a walk through the Scary Maze.
