4 If you aren't interested in ghosts go for the cake

Although I enjoyed the ghost tour the highlight was the supper - the cakes were delicious!

An interesting place to visit at night and learn the history of. We had a tour inside the church including being closed inside one of the rooms on our own briefly. Then outside to the graveyard learning about some of the people buried there and some previous "sightings". Finally we had time to explore the large cemetery on our own.
