This half term, join in the fun at Burton Agnes Hall in a (spacious and socially distant!) hunt around the peaceful yet eerily atmospheric woodland, finding a frightfully fun series of handcrafted scenes. Each dramatic scene asks a single question and bears a freaky fact. Watch skeletons playing croquet, spot a pirates’ coffin floating on the pond, duck under a witches’ washing line and creep around spooky scenes aplenty. Decipher the full trail of spooky clues and enjoy your eerie treat!

There’s a hunt for Seven Spooky Sacks in the woodland garden, a witches’ hut as a fun backdrop for family photos and each child will enjoy a bumper trail sheet with activities to complete.

Alongside the Halloween Trail, romp in the spine-tingling woodland adventure playground with its nine fabulous swings, tower with corkscrew slide and double zip wire and enjoy refreshments in the stableyard.


The Halloween Trail runs from Friday 23rd October to Sunday 1st November, 11am – 4pm daily and is designed for all the family to enjoy. Dogs are welcome too!

Admission prices:
