Dare you visit one of Britain’s most haunted castles this Halloween?!
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, 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 lots more, all included in General Entry ticket prices.
The Halloween Ghost Tour, a theatrical event in the Castle and scripted new again for 2017, will run at set times through the evenings. Ghost Tours sell out every year so book early to have your choice of date and time. While suitable for children, inevitably more nervous youngsters may find the Ghost Tour frightening. While as an activity the Ghost Tour not aimed at infants, we offer limited places free of charge for under-5s to accompany their families.
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.
