Halloween at Hook Lighthouse

Hook Lighthouse is worth visiting at any time of year but these special Halloween tours are only for those who like the ghoulish and the terrifying. Venture into darkness as you ascend the 115 steps of Lighthouse tower for a nighttime view of the graveyard of 1,000 ships, explore the original keepers’ quarters and learn of the true terrifying tales behind the Lighthouse and its grounds including the paranormal experiences of previous guests and staff. Atmospheric lighting, hanging spiders and creepy nooks and crannies along the way create an experience which is not for the feint-hearted.

The faint light thrown periodically by the lighthouse beacon adds to the atmosphere of terror, these tours are suitable for brave adults and braver kids but are not for anyone of a nervous disposition.
