Boo! Add an extra dash of spooky to your Halloween experience this year. Explore secrets in the dark at the world-famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. The Halloween Candlelight Tours offer the rare chance to see this 160-room mansion in a whole new way -- by only the flicker of a single candelabra. For just 10 special nights in October, you can enjoy this haunted tour filled with paranormal and chilling scenes around every corner. You never know what you'll find in the dark at Winchester Mystery House!
This unforgettable tour takes you through this legendary mansion guided only by candlelight. Stroll through a maze-like interior filled with vast spaces that alternate between total disrepair and beautiful Victorian splendor. Led by a gothic guide, this will be an unnerving Halloween experience, to say the least. Even if you don't see any ghosts, you will feel restless spirits all around you. You might not find any treats, but you will definitely find plenty of tricks played on your mind.
You can book one of these special tours on the following dates: October 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, and 28 - 31. Tours can sell out but you can buy tickets in advance for $35-49. The Winchester Mystery House is just a 10-minute drive away from our Silicon Valley accommodations. The guided tour takes about 1 hour and five minutes, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy a dinner at one of the area's many great restaurants.
