It's a historical gem that serves as the perfect backdrop for our spooktacular, family-friendly Halloween event. Wander the castle's grounds, and you'll feel transported back in time, experiencing history with a Halloween twist.

While the venue is wheelchair accessible, please note that due to the historical nature of some areas, wheelchair access may be limited. Our friendly attendants will be on hand to help.
