Would You Spend the Night in a Queen-Haunted 16th-Century British Palace?
Hampton Court Palace will host an overnight event this November.
Hampton Court Palace hosted the premieres of Hamlet and MacBeth and might be haunted by a queen. Now, with the purchase of a ticket you can spend a night in the royal palace. Dusk ‘til Dawn will begin November 3, and allow ticket purchasers to experience the royal past and find out what appealed Henry VIII to the place.
The overnight event will include a spooky tour of the halls after dark, complete with tales of 16th century witch hunts and other supernatural fears of the Tudor age. Those lucky enough to stay the night will sleep in one of Henry VIII’s King’s State Apartments.
The history goes that Henry VIII liked the royal vacation getaway so much that he took ownership of the palace. The ghostly queen that apparently roams the halls is Jane Seymour, who died after giving birth to Henry’s only surviving son. Centuries later in 1838, Queen Victoria opened Hampton Court Gardens to the public, which features a world-famous hedge maze.
