Details

At one of the oldest and most historic houses in England, join the team at Haddon Hall for some half term fun. Take part in a Halloween Trail around the hall to spot special (and some spooky) parts of the hall you might not normally notice! The trail is available for families to enjoy all week.

There will be face painting and crafts for children including Pick-a-Face Pumpkin, making spiders and preparing decorations to make your home extra scary this Halloween.

With the grounds and garden, restaurant and shop all open as usual during half term week, Haddon is the perfect place to bring your family during this October holiday.

    Notes

    • Haddon Hall is a Grade 1* listed building. It is built on a hillside above the valley of the River Wye. Because of the nature of the site, there are many different levels within the house itself. Access for visitors with disabilities and especially those using wheelchairs is very restricted. The ground floor is mainly flag stones, which have a worn uneven surface. Care and attention must be paid especially in doorways. Due to the changing levels in the Hall there are small steps between rooms.
