Dare you visit one of Britain’s most haunted castles this Halloween?!
Please allow plenty of time to arrive, park and make your way into the gardens, particularly if you have booked a timed show. There may be queues for some activities on the more popular days. Arrive early to have best chance of doing everything. Don’t forget to come in fancy dress and a TORCH would be a smart idea if you’re here after dark.
Our famous fireworks will be on Sunday 30th (included with general entry tickets). On the other five evenings (NB NOT Sun 30th), see the Hawk & Owl Centre’s fantastic Twilight Owls display when our falconers fly a selection of our beautiful owls in the gardens after dark in low-level lighting and with atmospheric music. Starting promptly at 7pm, the display lasts approximately 30 minutes (tickets required).
The Muncaster Monster Cabaret with continuous entertainment including the Dragon Tamers show at 7.30pm, the Scary Maze (not recommended for under 12s particularly in the evenings), the Cannon ‘firing’ at 6pm with Foppletwig the Genie-hunter, the Ghostly Grotto with spooky crafts, face-painting and spell and potion-making with the Black Monk and lots more, all included in General Entry ticket prices.
We also have ‘Arroween’ archery with Independent Adventure here throughout and the Clip’n’Climb Wall is joining us for Sat, Sun and Mon.
To help you plan your day, have a look at the provisional timetable.
Full screen, sound on max! have a look at our Halloween trailer below:
The Halloween Ghost Tour, a theatrical event in the Castle, scripted new again for 2016, will run at set times through the evenings. Shows sell out every year so book early to have your choice of date and time.
The cafe will stay open later for food and drink plus on the final three nights we are joined by Evie’s Waffles, Big Pan Man Catering, Little Blue Pig and Georgian Farmhouse Mulled Wine
Looking for accommodation over this period? Stay onsite at the Coachmans Quarters B&B with general entry free of charge! Alternatively the Pennington Hotel in Ravenglass has special rates to include Castle Ghost Tour tickets; more HERE.
