Castle Halloween Tour
A theatrical event in the Castle and scripted afresh with a new theme each year. In association with the University of Cumbria Performing Arts department, the tour will run at set times through the evenings and sell out every year so book early to have your choice of date and time.
This activity is suitable for children but with its Halloween theme in the Castle after dark, inevitably more nervous youngsters may find the tour frightening. While as an activity the Castle Halloween Tour is not aimed at infants, we offer limited places free of charge for under-5s to accompany their families.
Please note that your Castle Halloween Tour ticket is a ‘super ticket’ for the tour at a fixed time plus general entry with the daytime Castle visit included too.
The making of the 2016 Castle Halloween Tour featured on Channel 4’s series The Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes, screened on More4 in July 2017.
The cafe will stay open later for food and drink, plus on Friday, Saturday and Sunday we are joined by some of our favourite outside caterers. Look out for special Halloween treats from Evie’s Crepes & Waffles, Little Blue Pig, The Cocktail Bar and Big Pan Man Catering.
