Halloween Week (Tues 27th Oct - Sun Nov 1st)
See the Hawk & Owl Centre’s fantastic Twilight Owls display when our falconers fly a selection of our beautiful owls in the gardens after dark (separate tickets required), plus other ‘add-on’ activities.
A theatrical event in the Castle and scripted new each year, the Halloween Castle Tour will run at set times through the evenings. These sell out every year so book early to have your choice of date and time. The Castle Tour ticket is a ‘super ticket’ including general entry and daytime Castle visit but not the Twilight Owls.
The site opens from 10.30am through to mid-evening with Halloween activities commencing from around lunchtime.
