Halloween at Muncaster

26 Oct - 31 Oct 2016

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 show. There may be queues for some activities on the more popular days. Arrive early to have best chance of doing everything.

Our famous fireworks will be on Sunday 30th. On the other evenings, see the Hawk & Owl Centre's fantastic Twilight Owl show (allow ca 30 minutes, tickets required)

In 2015, we had the Muncaster Monster Cabaret, the Scary Maze, the Ghostly Grotto, the Black Monk and lots more, all included in General Entry ticket prices. Watch this space for 2016's lineup!

The Halloween theatricals in the Castle were themed on Thomas Skelton in 2015! Due to be scripted new again for 2016, the show format is up for a revamp this year, so watch this space for times and prices. Shows sell out every year so book early when tickets are available to have your choice of date and time.

Looking for accommodation over this period? Stay onsite at the Coachmans Quarters B&B or alternatively the Pennington Hotel in Ravenglass will have special rates to include Castle show tickets! More soon.
