As Halloween (and Halloween weekend) is fast approaching, we have picked up our favourite activities around the UK.


Whether you would like to get into the spooky spirit or enjoy a more light-hearted day, there is something for everyone. We have found family days out and fun themed parties, and for those who would like a terrifying time, we’ve picked our favourite live action mazes.


Our Favourite Halloween Events in the UK:


Halloween in the City



Up until 31st October, Manchester will be made over with all kinds of scary decorations and thousands of pumpkin lanterns. From 26th, buildings will light up green at nightfall which is your cue to follow the glow of the city and explore iconic buildings.


A festive week, Halloween in the City will consist of a trick or treat trail, a haunted maze, pumpkin patches, spooky stage acts and lots more.


Penshurst Place



What better way to spend Halloween than enjoying a story from a witch in the heart of the woods? Enjoy Halloween themed arts and crafts before toasting marshmallows and escaping into the spooky tales. If you are a lover of Halloween and fancy dress, there’s even a competition you can enter. This event takes place until 29th October, however, if you'd like to meet the witch, the last session is on 27th October.


Halloween PugFest



Not into Halloween and hate scary things or perhaps you just love pugs? Then the PugFest could be the event for you! On 28th October, you can spend the day surrounded by none other than pugs, enjoy a photo booth, stroll around craft stalls, eat food and most importantly, enjoy the dog show.


The PugFest is a non-profit organisation to support animal welfare and raise money for a number of charities, including The Pug Dog Welfare and Rescue Association and Dogs Trust. It is a family day out for pugs, pug crosses and pug lovers.


Fright Night at Thorpe Park



Open late, Thorpe Park hosts another year of Fright Night which will run up until 31st. With exclusive live action mazes full of actors, it is sure to live up to its name by giving you a frightful night. Walking Dead is the latest terrifying attraction to be added. Based on the American hit series, you can expect to experience a living nightmare.


Wookey Caves



Make your way through caves and cobwebs to where the witch resides in her new grotto at Wookey Hole. Although, this witch is not as wicked as you may think as she gives all children a Halloween treat. You can be taught to ride a broomstick by a wizard teacher and become bewitched watching the circus. It’s a great day out for all the family and will certainly get you into the spooky spirit.
