Ghosts and gin in equal measure at St John's Museum in Warwick

GHOSTS and gin in equal measure are being promised at St John’s House Museum in Warwick this Halloween.

A haunted house experience for all the family is being laid on at the museum from Thursday October 27 to Sunday October 30.

All ages are set for a spooking as they explore the rooms of St John ‘s House as visitors have never seen them before. There will be a telling of the creepy story of the Knights Templar hospital which sat on the site in the Medieval era.

Youngsters will be able to make bouncy eyeballs and a spooky lantern to take home, as well as get messy making potions and enjoy small world fairy play.

Tickets costs £14 for children and £8 for adults.

While adults will be able to guzzle spooky gin cocktails during a more spirited ghost tour on Friday October 28 including paranormal experts.

Tickets cost £25 per person. To book visit

Coun Heather Timms, Warwickshire County Council’s spokesperson for environment, climate and culture, said: “St John’s House is a wonderful Jacobean landmark in Warwickshire with a history spanning almost 900 years.

“It is popular with paranormal enthusiasts who regularly check in on activity after dark, and we’re pleased to be able to open the doors this half term to provide some spooky fun for children and adults alike.”
