Haunted Tours of the Lit & Phil £5

A Halloween extravaganza!

A spine-tingling tour of the Lit & Phil on the most spiritually active day of the year!

Believed to host more ghosts than any other building in the city, the 19th century neoclassical Lit & Phil is a fitting place for celebration of the supernatural.  It is said that there are at least 16 spectres haunting all three of its impressively-scaled floors, each with a link to the library’s colourful past.

Three tours run throughout the day: 11am, 1pm, 6pm

Dare you...?
