Officially it’s well documented that Halloween falls on 31st October each year. However the fun of Halloween in the Lake District last all week. In some cases the spooky goings on last even longer…
What’s on this Halloween in the Lake District
All Saints Day may fall on the 1st November, but Halloween in the Lake District is a much longer celebration.
Witches and Wizards Week
Monday 22nd October 2018 to Friday 26th October 2018. Ghost trains in Cumbria aren’t quite your usual affair. Jump aboard the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway for a journey you won’t forget. That’s not all either, for when you reach the Lakes Aquarium, your nightmare has only just begun.
Halloween at Muncaster Castle
Tuesday 23rd October 2018 to Sunday 28th October 2018. Do you believe in ghosts? Well it isn’t just Halloween in the Lake District that the afterlife come out to play. Thought to be one of the most haunted places in Cumbria, there’s even more to see and at Muncaster Castle late October.
Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Ghost Train
Friday 26th October 2018 to Saturday 27th October 2018. If one train journey hasn’t quite spooked you out, then maybe this one will. For this special one off occurrence, you never know who’s going to appear from the steam onboard this old locomotive.
Ghostly Galleon at Halloween
Sunday 28th October 2018. If you fancy a relaxing boat ride then take a walk down to Windermere Lake Cruises direct from your spa lodge in the Lake District. However for something a little more unassuming, there’s always Ullswater Steamers. For one day only, this classic boat transforms into the Ghostly Galleon.
Halloween at the World of Beatrix Potter
Sunday 28th October. That very same Sunday you can wake up and take a slow start to the day. Maybe take a dip in the hot tub, or take a short walk to the spa facilities at Aphrodite’s Lodge. Alternatively meet up with friends and family with children and visit the World of Beatrix Potter. In the build up to Halloween in the Lake District, the museum hosts a family day of face painting, arts an crafts and maybe a story or two.
Escape Halloween at a Windermere Boutique Cottage
Fancy holding your own Halloween party this year at a spa lodge in the Lake District? Alternatively maybe you’d rather get away from it all. While we can’t guarantee there won’t be any trick or treaters, you are at least in a more secluded area of Cumbria.
Your evening may normally be interrupted by a knock on the door, however at Windermere Boutique Cottage you can escape in luxury. Take an evening dip in the hot tub or read a book in front of the fire. Lay down in the relaxation room, turn the lights down and put some music on.
So whether you want to hide away from the ghosts and ghouls or read each other horror stories. Why not book a spa lodge in the Lake District.
