Ghostly Garden

Take a twilight adventure through the Royal Botanic Garden in this spine-tingling storytelling event.

In a rare opportunity to come within the Garden Gates after hours, you’ll journey along shadowy tree-lined paths, creep past gloomy ponds and tiptoe through eerie grottos. You'll hear spooky and kooky stories of the Garden's past — tales of people long-since dead — as bats flit above your head and night-creatures stare from the treetops on this unforgettable tour of the 'ghostly garden'.
