A friend of mine wants to book a vigil at Chillingham Castle which is from 10pm til 4am i think, Its £60 per person is that a fair price?

60 quid for just 6 hours? I'm a little dubious about that, as I believe we paid about that for 2 days, which included our own rooms. But I would say go for it, as the place is really haunted!

Its about the going rate, there are so many of these money making outfits out there charging that much and more to get into a haunted location. But hey, it's a way of getting in there and experiencing the place, so £60 is well worth it in my opinion. However, do a little research into who is running it. Myself and GiTM have done this before with a money making group (when we went to Kielder Castle) and we wouldn't do it again, but not all groups are the same I am sure. Chillingham is special, so go for it! :-D

Yes but you don't realise how lucky we were, we only paid £50 a night each, for 3 nights totalling £150 each, because of a special deal arrangement between WYPG and Sir Humphrey. We were told we would normally pay about £1000 to hire it like we did for only one night, and even so wouldn't have had the all area access we did then.
I doubt our deal will ever be repeated.

The person who does the 2 hr ghost walk is called Graham so i assume he also does the vigil, i cant seem to see the vigil prices or any information on the website so i don't know where my friend has got this information from.
