Our biggest event of the year! Dare you visit one of Britain’s most haunted castles this Halloween?
Evening tours of this famously haunted castle sell out every year! Pre booking is essential. These tickets include entry into the gardens and Owl Centre from 10.30am, the Castle from 12 noon and Darkest Muncaster illuminations in the evening.
There are plenty of activities to take part in without a ghost tour, if you do not wish to take part in a ghost tour but want to take part in the other halloween activities you can buy the Halloween day ticket.
Visit the Ghostly Grotto from 2pm for children's free crafts, face painting (small charge applies) children's stories.
The Creepy Owl Crypt will also be open from 2pm where you can learn about the work of the World Owl Trust.
After dusk the gardens are transformed by the Darkest Muncaster illuminations with a mile long route through the beautifully lit trees and shrubs that tower either side of the main drive. A spooky sound and light show plays across the castle. Dare you stay as darkness falls to enjoy twilight spooky owl tours (please book on arrival) as well as special guest entertainers.
For the really brave, we aim to make you scream if you dare to enter the Scary Maze! (Not recommended for children under 12) (charge applies)
The Castle is open daily from 12 noon until 4pm.
The café and gift shop are open until 8pm and the gardens are open until 9pm.
Don't forget to come in fancy dress!
Please note timings may change without prior notice and in event of bad weather some shows may be cancelled.
