What an amazing ghost tour!Everything was brought to life by Mistress Morgana. Her theatrical depiction of the history of Aradale made this an unforgettable experience! Highly recommend going on a tour at Aradale. Will be going again ♡

The Aradale Lunatic Asylum is large and very spooky. We had a small group with varying degrees of anxiety and fear. Enjoyed the theatre of it all.

Very informative and interesting. The tour was a good length although there should be a couple extra sit-down breaks, as it is quite a feat for those with chronic pain worsened by walking and standing for long periods of time.

I went on the 2 hour tour. There is a lot of stairs and walking. Short beaks so the guide can do their talking. It is also quite dark, only lantern light. I would say it may not be suitable. So I think it would be up to you... More
