Brave a private ghost tour this winter at Hampton Court Palace, one of six palaces cared for by charity Historic Royal Palaces. The evening tours are ideal if a spine-tingling experience is on your 2019 wishlist.

Up to 30 people can explore the 500-year-old palace by night, including Henry VIII’s apartments and the infamous Haunted Gallery. Jo Jennings, events manager at the Palace, says: “This is a fantastic opportunity to see the palace by night. We love seeing the faces of our guests when they encounter the unexpected – each tour is an entirely unique experience!”
