Things to do with the kids this autumn
We've got a half-term packed full of Hallowe'en fun for all the family and you can start getting in the spirit of things throughout October.
Help us decorate for Hallowe'en
Start off the autumn season by making a spooky spider to help us decorate a giant web in the hall of the castle. It's free, just drop into the craft sessions every Saturday in October, between 2 and 3pm to create your eight-legged friend.
Half-term Hallowe'en happenings
Back by popular demand we've got your favourite spook-tastic family activities planned this October half-term: pumpkin carving and besom making will be running throughout the week.
Get creative as you carve a pumpkin to be proud of. It's very popular so it's best to book in advance to reserve your pumpkin. The Rangers will also help you make a besom, or broom, fit for any wicked witch. Find out more and how to reserve your place below in the 'What's on' section.
Enjoy a colourful walk
A highlight for autumn has to be a walk in the castle grounds and surrounding woods. The views on this downloadable trail are made even more stunning in the autumn light.
