Halloween Woodland Walks

As the days grow shorter and the nights get longer, bring your family to join our ghost-hunting storytellers on a trip through the shadows of Wrest Park's woodland trail.

With well-told tales full of spooky, strange and silly goings-on, this Halloween walk is sure to get you into the spirit of the season. This is an outdoor tour, so please wear suitable clothes and shoes. It lasts about 45 minutes, and it’s suitable for children aged 5-12.

Walks take place from the 29th October - 31st October. There will be walks departing at 5.30pm, 6.30pm & 7.30pm. There will be an allocated time on your ticket. Please arrive promptly as each walk must depart on time.
