The Castle Of The Dead event is a new scare attraction being run to raise funds for the for much needed restoration work as part of the Wisbech Castle Project.

A team of actors are busy preparing for tours that take place over three nights in the run up to Halloween.

The tour will be taken by groups of between five and nine people.

A tour spokesman said: “Because there will be dark areas, steps and uneven ground due to the nature of the event, it is recommended that guests are physically able to move unaided around the terrain in shadowy conditions.

“Some of the event will take place outside. Please dress suitably for cold or wet weather.

“There will be live actors. They will interact with you, but it is just for fun. They will not touch you and you must not touch them.”

The tour will take about 15-20 minutes, followed by refreshments inside the Castle where you can enjoy watching the next group face the horrors over a nice cup of hot chocolate and a cupcake.

Entry is by pre-purchased ticket only for a specific hourly time slot.
