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.

Gather your little monsters for a ghoulishly good day out this half term. Follow the trail to solve creepy clues and gather round to listen to spooky stories. There’s a frighteningly fun fancy dress competition every day – just come in your scariest outfits to be in with a chance of winning.

This was our first visit to Wrest Park. It has lovely grounds, very well maintained and whilst the house was partially open the staff were very knowlegable and gave an insight into the history of it. It wasn't overcrowded and there was good social distancing measures in place.
Lovely few hours spent strolling around the gardens. Nice outside cafe and shop.
Visited with family at Easter for dragon egg hunt. Lovely gardens, beautiful house. Cafe very expensive. Having entrance, cafe and gift shop all together is cramped confusing and frustrating trying to enter or leave when there are activity days.
