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 the School of Sorcery and embark on some spooky adventures this half term.

Gain entry to Croft's School of Sorcery by following the spooky trail around the gardens. From Saturday 26 October to Sunday 3 November, see if you can follow the clues, stir the potions and cast the spells to complete the trail. You can also enjoy pumpkin carving on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October, wand-making and crafts on Thursday 31 October and broomstick racing all holiday on the front lawn.

Don't forget to dress up, play games and have a go at our indoor trail in the castle. 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 Fishpool Valley.
