What’s on this Halloween in the Lake District
Halloween in the Lake District can be a spooky time of year. After all, with some of the most haunted places in Cumbria ready to come alive, there’s a ghost waiting around every corner.
Halloween at Muncaster Castle
Tuesday 23rd October 2018 to Sunday 28th October 2018. One such haunted house is Muncaster Castle in Ravenglass. The week-long celebration of Halloween in the Lake District is set to feature a whole host of events. From fire-breathing circus acts to drum workshops, it’s not all about ghosts and ghouls. Although, that said, beware if you step inside the maze after dark.
The Halloween Experience at Brockhole
Saturday 20th October 2018 to Tuesday 23rd October. Children and adults alike may believe that the number 13 is unlucky, but at Brockhole in Windermere, it could be quite the opposite. That is if you’re taking a spa break in Windermere but out with little ones during the day.
Thursday 25th October 2018 to Sunday 28th October 2018. You may be trying to get away for a romantic spa break in Windermere, or you could be meeting up with family. If it’s the latter, then take the children to Holker Hall ready for the “Witches and Wizardry School of Excellence”.
Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Ghost Train
Friday 26th October 2018 to Saturday 27th October 2018. While walking in the Lake District is a popular past-time, the scenery from the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is wonderful. However, when it comes to Halloween in the Lake District, you may find yourself distracted from the views.
Beech Hill Hotel Halloween Ball
Saturday 27th October 2018. If you’re enjoying the luxurious surroundings of the Windermere Tranquil Retreat, continue living the high life at the Halloween Masquerade Ball. Tickets are £49 per person, with an evening meal and entertainment included.
Ghostly Galleon at Halloween
Saturday 27th October 2018. It wouldn’t be a spa break in Windermere without spending some time on the great lakes. However, for one night only, Ullswater Steamers are much more than just a boat trip.
Halloween at World of Beatrix Potter
Sunday 28th October 2018. Just down the road from Windermere Tranquil Retreat is the famous World of Beatrix Potter. You can relive your childhood or meet friends and family with little ones themselves. An afternoon of less scary Halloween fun awaits with face painting and light-hearted storytelling.
Clockwork Moth Shadow Play and Puppetry Display
Wednesday 31st October 2018. Just like Muncaster Castle, the chances are Wray Castle in Ambleside is haunted all year round. Although on Halloween in the Lake District, you can expect folklore and tales of yesteryear to help bring the ghosts to life. Performances take place throughout the day, costing just £2 per person. Although you will need to still pay for the initial castle entrance fees.
