York’s hidden medieval townhouse, Barley Hall, is opening its doors this Halloween for two nights of spooky themed events specifically aimed at little terrors!
On the evenings of the 30th and 31st October, Barley Hall is hosting its popular Haunted Hall event, with special guided tours starting every 30 minutes testing youngsters wits to uncover a spooky mystery with each child being rewarded for their assistance with a goody bag at the end of their adventure.
“We are taking a lighter approach to Halloween, giving children thrills and chills but no nightmares! Haunted Hall offers children the chance to be part of the action with an interactive guided experience through historic Barley Hall.” Commented Paul Ruxton, Visitor Services Manager at Barley Hall.
Haunted Hall is a perfect Halloween event for the kids, suitable children aged 5 to 12. Taking place Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st, 5:30pm to 8pm, tickets are £5.50 per person with tours starting every 30 minutes.

About Barley Hall
Barley Hall is a stunning medieval house, once home to the Priors of Nostell and a Lord Mayor of York.
Until the 1980s the building was hidden under the relatively modern facade of a derelict office block. Only when it was going to be destroyed was the amazing medieval structure discovered and its rich history uncovered.
Owned and operated by York Archaeological Trust, a registered Charity in England & Wales (No. 509060) and Scotland (No. SCO42846) and part of The JORVIK Group of Attractions, which includes the world-famous JORVIK Viking Centre.
