Get spooky this October half term at Croft Castle

A group of children find a clue on a Halloween trail at Croft Castle in Herefordshire

Join Willow the witch for some spooky adventures on our half term trail.

Willow the witch has left you with a very important task. See if you can follow the family trail through the gardens, deciphering the clues and discovering different spells and potion ingredients as you go. Cast the incantation at the end to claim your prize. The trail is running daily throughout the holiday, from Saturday 20 October to Sunday 4 November.

Don't forget to dress up, play games and see if you can spot all of Willow the witch's cats in the castle on our indoor trail. Go wild in our natural and mini-castle play areas and tick off some of your '50 things to do' for autumn in our 1500 acre parkland. Play conkers, climb a tree, catch a falling leaf and go bird watching in our bird-hide in Fishpool Valley.
