Frightful family fun in store at Warwick Castle for Halloween

SCARE schools and haunted hollows are just some of the frightful treats in store at Warwick Castle this Halloween.

The South Warwickshire-based tourist attraction will be the spooky backdrop to a host of Halloween-themed activities running throughout the half-term holidays, complete with pumpkins and chilling decor.

Fearless families are invited – from October 22 – to venture through The Haunted Hollows, meeting four spooky characters on the way. There will be the chance to help the mischievous Reynard tell a terrifying tale in Halloween school and greet the Witches of Warwick in the Witches’ Tower.

The Castle Dungeon will be open everyday, as usual, for those wishing to discover the castle’s most grizzly and gruesome history.

While budding sorcerers can perfect their cackles, cast spells and cause mischief in the castle grounds in the Scare Schools.

The ever-popular Dead Centre Stage brings the castle courtyard to life with spooktacular shows and games as its motley crew of failed Victorian circus performers raise both hairs and smiles with their uncanny comedy.

And Castle After Dark also returns for seven select nights this October, inviting scare-seekers to brace themselves for an evening of spine-chilling scares and frightful festival entertainment.
