Welcome to The Lost Cellars

Descend into the darkness beneath the castle walls and discover what awaits you in The Lost Cellars.

The Keeper of the Lost Souls invites you on a journey down deep into the mysteries of the cellars of Alnwick Castle, where the air is thick with forgotten centuries and the sounds of the past linger on. But beware, "this is not for the faint of heart or those timorous souls who fear the shadows of the eternal night..."

Locked and undisturbed for decades, this abandoned space has been transformed into a brand new attraction, The Lost Cellars – unique to the North of England - full of tales of terrible fates and grisly folklore, combined with character holograms, hair-raising lighting and the very latest audio technology.

Performances last approximately 20 minutes.
