Tickets are now on sale for a brand new trail filled with spooky fun for everyone. Book now to secure your preferred date and time.

Brought to you by the producers of Christmas at Dunham Massey, this brand-new Halloween trail is filled with so many hidden surprises. Join family and friends to wander from dusk into darkness and remember, the darker it gets, the spookier it gets.

Within the eerie grounds of the Mill watch out for flickering flames in fiendish fire pits, daring fire performers and grinning pumpkins aglow. Inside the Mill itself, the spine-tingling mayhem continues – could it be a trick of the light or do things really go “bump in the night”? Once back in the chilled night air, dodge thunderstorms, phantoms and larger-than-life spiders. Tip-toe gently under the carnivorous tree glowing in the dark – don’t disturb the sleeping roots or you’ll be sorry! And keeping a close eye on you will be the mysterious, ghostly horseman...

*Along with bewitched burgers, Frankenstein’s fries and loaded curly worms, there’s a delicious twist to the sweetest of treats on offer. Enjoy a fiendishly good hot toddy or devilishly decadent hot chocolate and toast a marshmallow with someone special.

Capacity is limited, so plan now to secure the date and time of your choice.

*Seperate charges apply.

Your very spookiest Halloween starts here
