Spooky Hallowe'en adventures

You’ll find all the ingredients for a scary Hallowe’en adventure at the places we look after. Discover creaking staircases and secret doorways, go in search of ghoulish gargoyles and historical legends, or explore mystifying mazes and magical woods.

There are even more spine-chilling thrills in store at our Hallowe’en events. Kids can don their most frightening fancy dress, play wizards and witches and join in other spooky activities. There’s also the chance to listen to terrifying tales, go on ghostly night tours, follow eerie trails or carve a devilish pumpkin.

As well as being an exhilarating family day out, by joining in with one of our creepy Hallowe’en events you’ll also be helping us to carry on looking after special places. And with some of our historic houses rumoured to be haunted, you’ll be keeping the ghosts happy too.

Don’t forget to look out for Hallowe’en themed treats in our tea-rooms as everything you buy also helps to ensure the places we look after can be enjoyed by everyone for generations to come.
