This October half term you're invited to join us at the Frights of Abraham for some gory Halloween treats, a frightfully fun pumpkin pebble trail, and a spookily good new self-guided ghost hunt for adults and children to enjoy together.

There are five fictional tales of mischievous ghosts waiting to be unveiled all across the 230-year-old estate. Follow the ghost hunters map to find the terrifying tales, and access them straight from your smartphone by scanning the QR codes and listening through your mobile phone speaker. What mysteries will you uncover?

The Heights estate is also being taken over by pumpkin people of various shapes and sizes! The challenge, for those brave enough to take it on, is to find the smallest pumpkins- the pumpkin pebble people! They are shy guys who will be hiding amongst their larger friends- how many can you find? Fill in the details on your ghost map and enter the prize draw for a chance to win a family ticket for 2021 and a mystery gift!
