Halloween Week

25 Oct - 31 Oct 2015

Dare you visit one of Britain's most haunted castles this Halloween?!

Don't forget to come in fancy dress and a TORCH would be a smart idea if you're here after dark.

Please allow plenty of time to arrive, park and make your way into the gardens, particularly if you have booked a timed tour. The 30th-31st are expected to be particularly busy with queues for some activities. Arrive early to have best chance of doing everything.

Our famous fireworks are on the first night this year, which is Sunday 25th, at 6.30pm (dependent on the weather). 

Through the rest of Halloween Week (Mon 26th to Sat 31st) see the Hawk & Owl Centre's Ghostly Owls flying display at 7pm on the Flying Meadow (tickets required)

The Meadowvole Maze becomes the Scary Maze for the week and is strictly not for the nervous!

NEW in 2015, visit the Circus of Horrors big top for continuous Halloween entertainment through the afternoon and evening.

Muncaster's witches offer creepy crafts in the Ghostly Grotto, where you can mix a spell or potion with the Black Monk too.

Sun 25th, Fri 30th and Sat 31st, have a go at archery with Independent Adventure!

The Castle Ghost Tours are scripted new every year, so we can't give too many details at this stage. However, you can get a feel for what Halloween's like at Muncaster by having a look at Comely Media's video below;
