This half term as part of our Halloween in Enchanted Ilam events, we have a magical adventure to invite you on to create your own mythical creature!

Creep down the spiral staircases, along the bubbling river and through our misty woodlands spotting peak district wildlife stations along the way. At each stop spin the wheels to build a new and wonderful creature inspired by the real life animals of the White Peak.

Fancy dress encouraged, lets fill the park with witches, wizards, ghouls goblins and spooky creatures of all kinds!
