To those that dare enter, you can find them climbing the walls and hanging from the ceilings of the historic tower, and striking terror to anyone who enters.

Sylvia Kavanagh, Museum and Visitor Services at Derry City and Strabane District Council said: “As you walk through the darkness, guided by lamplight on the Ghost Tours, be prepared to be terrified by stories of ‘The Death Coach’, ‘The Gravestone’ and ‘The Devil’s Chair’.

“With admission to the tours you can also avail of the family fun activities in the Discovery Zone which will include mask making, treasure hunts, lantern making and lots of other fun activities.
