Venture into a world of mystery and sublime fantasy into an infinitely memorable venue hidden in a secret location about a mile from the Palace of Westminster.

7.00pm Gates open 

Guests enter through The Enchanted Garden, an ancient woodland glade dominated by a haunted castle ruin.  The eerie echo of chirping crickets & howling wolves wafts gently in the breeze…


Guests emerge from the cold winter night into the splendour of The Red Room, where our fully stocked bar is located and warm themselves by a real log fire.

7.10pm The Whispering Chair & Cellar Tours begin

Fifteen minute tours of hysterically funny The Spooky Cellar commence in small groups, hosted by our eccentric butler and enticing vampire. They guide the guests through the spooky phenomena and strange happenings in the oldest part of the building, featuring a comedic send-up of a garish and silly Santa's Grotto. These very funny tours continue till 9.45pm. Meanwhile, in The Auditorium over by our stunning Christmas Tree, guests are individually invited to sit on The Whispering Chair and allow the invisible soothsayer to predict their fortune. (Please wear a mask in the cellar for your own and our staff's safety).

A gaggle of the UKs finest Close-up Magicians mix and mingle in The Auditorium and the upstairs Drawing Room, astounding and delighting guests with intimate miracles.
