Portland Castle is having a sleep over on Friday night.

English Heritage are inviting 20 lucky guests to take an exclusive  twilight tour.

You'll be treated to supper as you hear grizzly stories of the Castle's history before you bed down for the night.

It's the first time that visitors have been able to tour the Castle after hours.

Donna Brading at Portland Castle, said: "We're really excited to be hosting the adult sleepover at Portland Castle, especially after the success of this event at other English Heritage properties."

"Guests have never been able to tour the castle grounds after hours and this event will provide a unique experience in a magnificent setting as guests receive an exclusive tour, as well as the chance to sleep in a haunted castle."

Book immediately to secure your place at this event as visitor numbers are limited and are restricted to adults only (16), however a similar event is planned for later this year, a 'Halloween' themed overnight stay suitable for families on 31 October.

For more information about both of these events and to book your place call 0870 333 1183. For details about Portland Castle, including accessibility, visit:
