    Dead Men Tell Tales Halloween Ghost Tour - Charlestown Shipwreck Centre

    ADULT ONLY 16+

     

    Brave souls have the chance to embark on a supernatural visit to the Shipwreck Museum, in Charlestown, this Halloween night (Thursday, 31st October) with the brand-new Dead Men Do Tell Tales ghost tour.
    The adult-only tour will encompass the Shipwreck Museum and its 8,000 artefact collection and incorporate tales of shipwrecks, curses, superstitions and ghosts along the way. 
    It will be led by paranormal professional Nikki Grigg who has formerly carried out paranormal investigations at Shrieves House Barn in Stratford Upon Avon, considered one of the most haunted buildings in the UK.
    Nikki, who has worked with many mediums, historians and paranormal artists in the past, believes the Shipwreck Museum’s rich heritage will make it a fascinating location to explore.
    “I’m really excited to investigate the ghostly history of Charlestown and the Shipwreck Museum with the brave visitors joining me on the tour. I have walked through the collection of artefacts previously and now I’m eager to unlock their secrets,” said Nikki. 
    The Shipwreck Museum already has a reputation for ghostly apparitions with children claiming to have spotted shadowy figures and one local medium sensing a paranormal presence during a visit to the Cornish museum. 
    Ghost hunters will also have the chance to descend the tunnels beneath the museum and explore the dimly lit 18th Century Georgian passageways of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Will you be brave enough to lead the way?

    Price £12.50

    Tour Times 7pm, 9pm and 11pm

    Booking over the phone in advance is essential

    Spooky stories of sunken ships and haunted tunnels await visitors to the Shipwreck Museum in Charlestown this October Half Term (19th October – 3rd November) during their scary Shriek-wreck event.

    There will also be the chance to spot some of Captain Blackbeard’s cursed pirate ships whilst exploring the museum on a treasure hunt. 
    The fearsome pirate leader’s fleet has returned from the mysterious Devil’s Triangle where they disappeared 300 years ago! Look out for the ghost ships around the museum and claim some pirate treasure at the end of your voyage. 
    Youngsters will also find awful arts and creepy crafts activities where they’ll be able to make skull and cross bones pirate masks to frighten their friends amongst the pumpkins, sailor skeletons and cobwebs at the museum. 
    The Shipwreck Museum are also encouraging little ghosts and ghouls to don their best Halloween fancy dress for the October Half Term event too!
    The Shipwreck Museum is located above Charlestown Harbour in the UNESCO World Heritage Site and houses one of Europe’s largest collections of shipwreck finds with over 8,000 artefacts on display. 
    Objects range from Ancient Egypt and Roman periods, to surprising modern-day discoveries. Visitors will even be able to view the world’s only intact barrel of coins to ever be recovered from a shipwreck.
