Scary spooks, witches hats, men in black and frightening cats! People lurking in the brambles – ‘enjoy’ your haunted, spooky amble!
For nearly 400 years Kiplin Hall & Gardens has been a place of entertainment, creativity, and theatricals. New for 2019 is a brand-new trail that is not for the faint-hearted. Visitors are invited to step into a world of frighteningly good fun and fantasy this Halloween on a new trail that explores the historic Crowe’s Wood at Kiplin. Starting off in the Walled Garden brave visitors set forth through the pumpkin patch, into the Garden Museum, and beyond into the ancient woodland where the brave-hearted will encounter spooky characters from the past lurking in the undergrowth. Ghouls and giant spiders hang in the trees, showers of bats and rats dangle overhead, a White Woman, ghostly child and Man in Black appear from nowhere, whilst a playful skeleton bobs atop a golden swan on the Lily Pond.
In the hall itself cobwebs cover cakes with decorations inspired by Miss Havisham and Satis House in the novel Great Expectations.
Kiplin Hall’s Tea Room is serving delicious Autumn fayre alongside some terrifyingly tasty treats! The education room is full of creepy crafts and is dressed for the occasion too!
Visitors are encouraged to dress up at Kiplin Hall & Gardens this Halloween.
Those brave enough to step inside Crowe’s Wood are advised to wear sturdy, waterproof footwear, and that the route isn’t accessible to most push chairs.
The spook-tacular Halloween activities run every day except Thursdays and Fridays from Saturday 19th October to Sunday 3rd November.
Standard admission applies, there is no additional charge, and there is no need to book.
