Starry 'Knights' at Langley

"For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream..."

...of a night at Langley Castle

- Vincent Van Gogh

Starry 'Knights' at Langley Castle

A truely stellar collision of history and the stars. Our beautiful Castle lies beneath the world renowned Northumbrian dark skies.

Aurora Night

Tuesday 14th January 2020 - NEW DATE JUST RELEASED

Tuesday 19th November 2019  (FULLY BOOKED)

Aurora Nights are all about learning the science behind this rare, beautiful phenomenon; what is it, where does it come from and where do the colours come from? You'll also be armed with the knowledge to know when the Northern Lights are happening and how to find the best locations locally to try to see them. You'll be given a tour of the observatory and the equipment and the experienced team will explain how it all works, and if the skies are clear you’ll be peering deep into the universe, both through telescopes and with the naked eye on the viewing decks.

A Universe Full of Stars

Tuesday 7th January 2020


The Universe... How did it start? How old is it? How big is it? How will it end? These are some of the questions that have engaged civilisations throughout millennia. On this night, with your collaboration, we will attempt to unravel it all.  We will dive head first in our current understanding of it and explore the probability of how accurate the current theories are. From the uncertainty of the big bang to the cosmic microwave background and on to the evolution of the universe to what we see today. After the talk we will guide you through the observatory, introduce you to the large aperture telescopes we have here and give guidance on how best to use them, and if the skies are clear and depending on the lunar calendar, we will observe objects within our galaxy that you may never have known existed.

The package includes:

  • 1 Night Accommodation in a CastleView Room
  • 3-Course meal with coffee
  • Travel to and from the observatory in a luxury coach.
  • Entry into the observatory
  • Cheeseboard and a snifter upon your return to Langley

Dungeons & Dragons - The Grey Lady

A Horror Roleplaying Experience

An immersive horror experience, set within the walls and grounds of Langley Castle Hotel, complete with overnight accommodation in a Castle View Room, and a meal in the 2 Rosette Restaurant.  Presented by local storyteller and gamemaster Chris Hately, this collaborative, tabletop, horror story promises to be a memorable, one-of-a-kind event.

The Grey Lady is, at its heart, a tabletop roleplaying game [TTRPG] experience, utilising the spectacular backdrop of Langley Castle and its history to build a truly unique atmosphere. From that foundation, the gamemaster [GM] leads the players in collaborative storytelling, in which each player takes control of a different character. Their choices and actions will impact how their story plays out; who lives, who dies, and whether the mystery at the heart of the story is ever revealed. Designed for beginners and old-hands alike, this night is perfect for anyone who wants to tell scary stories in the dead of night.

Residential guests are welcome to arrive from 1.00 pm, where Chris will be on hand to get to know the players, and answer any questions they may have. The night proper begins at 3.00 pm with a welcome from Chris, who will explain the intent and timings of the night, and answer any last minute queries or questions. From there they will be taken to dinner at Langley Castles fantastic restaurant, where they can get to know Chris and the other players better. Once dinner is finished, Chris will give the players a tour of the castle itself, familiarising them with the locales in which their story will take place. Finally, as the sun sets and darkness takes hold, the group will move towards the outdoor grave site of Cadwallader and Josephine Bates, where the game will take place. If weather conditions are not conducive to an outdoor game, the game will be moved to the chapel atop the battlements, which Josephine had built in memory of her late husband.

The game itself is a modified version of Cavalry Games’ fantastic Ten Candles rules system. Relying on players’ telling their own story, with some GM input and occasional dice rolling, the party must survive the horrors they are presented, with each failed roll extinguishing on of ten candles in the centre of the table. As each candle dies, the GM gains more and more control of the story, until everything finally goes dark, and the players’ characters meet their demises.

Note: This event contains adult, horror themes, such as murder, suicide, and hauntings. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 without parental accompaniment. If you have any concerns, contact Chris Hately or Langley Castle, and we will be happy to help.
