Join the family friendly fun in Tunbridge Wells this Halloween

Hallowe'en in Tunbridge Wells

We’ve got some spooky fun for adults as well as kids this Hallowe’en in the Tunbridge Wells region.

Officially Hallowe’en is on 31 October when the ‘after-life’ visit the living. As Hallowe’en becomes more popular, there is more variety of things to do, some quite quirky!

Half term falls around this time of year too so many attractions offer suitable things to do for smaller children as well.

Eight Evil Things To Do At Hallowe’en in Tunbridge Wells

1. A gruesome half term is revealed at Penshurst Place from 19 – 27 October. Take part in the Potion Masters lesson and follow the week long creepy Forgetful Witch's garden trail.

The Wicked Witch of The Wild Wood will be telling stories to make your hair curl in the yurt. Enjoy a hot chocolate from the bubbling cauldron and steel yourself for what’s to come!

Adorn your scariest Hallowe’en costume if you like but feel free to join the fun no matter what you wear!

2. Majestic (and spooky) castlesHever and Leeds have Halloween half term activities and trails to goad your little ghouls into galloping through the school holiday!

3. Family spooktacular event ‘#Wild_Child’ is being held at Salomon’s Estate on Sunday 28 October, fancy dress optional, a dance party for 8 years and under but all ages are welcome including babes in arms…

Face your fears if you dare!

4. A Clairvoyance Evening with Steve Holbrook at Mercure Tunbridge Wells Hotel will bring you closer to the spirits on 31 October, (minimum age 18 years).

5. Scare yourself silly facing the theatrical shows from the Spooky Hallowe'en Musical for the whole of your family at Groombridge Place, right in the middle of nowhere…!

From 19 October to 3 November the Enchanted Forest’s landscape will be transformed with lanterns, pumpkins, cobwebs and broomsticks as Hallowe’en is brought macabrely to life.

For a heads up read the blog A Terrifying Time at Groombridge Place.

6. Dare yourself to take a high ropes tree-top adventure at Go-Ape Bedgebury. Swing through the trees up to 13 metres’ high and along the 170 metre zip line through the magnificent canopy of the largest collection of conifers in the world. There is no minimum age although the minimum height is 1m.

7. SCREEEEAAAM! Don't miss Half Term Fun at Paddock Wood’s Hop Farm Family Park.
