Halloween Half Term Fun 19 – 31 October

Prepare to be spooked this Halloween at Haunted Hever. For autumn half term we have a vast array of spook-tacular events on at the Castle for you and your little ones.

Join the spooky storytelling, take part in the Halloween craft activity, follow the scarecrow scavenger hunt around the grounds and sink your teeth into a sweet treat at the deadly delicious biscuit decorating workshop* (*small additional charge).

Don your scariest outfit to take part in the fancy dress costume (with prizes for the best dressed) and finish your spooky creation off with a freakish facepaint* (*small additional charge. Not available Sat 19 October).

Step into the Castle and let your little ones find the hidden bats. Meanwhile you will have the chance to read up on gruesome Victorian tales!
