Halloween half term fun at Longshaw

Into the woods you go to discover creepy tales and riddles...

Join in the Halloween fun at Longshaw this autumn and create your own Mysterious Monster and solve some Ridiculous Riddles as you venture through the eerie woods.

Mysterious Monsters & Ridiculous Riddles

Dress up in your most spooktacular outfit this half term and join in the Halloween fun at Longshaw. Follow our woodland trail and create a nature inspired mysterious monster of your own. For those of you who love to solve a puzzle, pick up a Ridiculous Riddle sheet and test your nature detective skills along the way. Solve the final riddle to discover one of Longshaw’s spooky residents, then strike a petrifying pose and see who can guess who you are! Be sure to take lots of photos and share them with us over our social media channels @PeakDistrictNT

Who, what, where, when we hear you cry!

Join us for our Mysterious Monsters and Ridiculous Riddles at Longshaw from Saturday 23rd October to Sunday 7th November, between 10am and 3pm. Trail costs £3 and includes a lantern making kit to take home (card payments only please). 

Head to the Welcome Building in our main Woodcroft car park where your Halloween adventures can begin. Remember to return to tell us what you discovered in the woods along the way and pick up your lantern making kit. Then after your weird and wonderful wanders, why not head to Longshaw Cafe to treat yourselves (no tricks here), open every day 10am – 4pm. Make a pit stop to swoop in and browse second-hand books in our cosy Book Den, open 10am-2pm. You may even find a spooky story and a batty book for some bedtime reading!

Have a good howl and a hoot!

Creep and crawl your way over the bridges and through the woods at Longshaw this Halloween and see what other creepy crawly creatures you can find. Why not come dressed as a creepy crawly yourself and then you’ll definitely be well camouflaged and ready to spook anyone that crosses your path. Will you hear the hoot of a witch’s owl or brush past the long legs of a hairy spider? Use all your senses to admire all the nature that you can find in the woods at this time of year and all their different behaviours as they prepare for winter.

All funds raised will help us to maintain the beautifully diverse (and spooky!) woodlands across the Longshaw Estate, for everyone, forever.
