Discover the fantasy and folklore of Halloween at Beaulieu during this October half-term holiday, with some amazing seasonal activities.
See the harvest festival-themed decorations in Palace House, the home of the Montagu family since 1538, and head to the Victorian Kitchen to watch the cook bake traditional soul cakes.
Listen to costumed guides as they tell chilling ghost stories from the past. Younger visitors can have their faces painted with a ghoulish design and there will be special arts and crafts activities for them to get stuck into.
Follow the All Hallows trail around the Beaulieu attraction to learn about the origins and folklore of Halloween and All Hallows Day. Search for the spiders that are hiding across the attraction – can you spot where these eight-legged critters have gone?
For more magical goings-on, explore the secluded Mill Pond Walk to see fairy doors belonging to Beaulieu’s smallest residents, plus tree carvings of mythical creatures. Hop on the veteran bus or take a ride on the high-level monorail to see the sights of Beaulieu.
