Event Description

With wondrous witches, Horrible Histories and the return of the spectacular Fire Joust, experience Warwick Castle’s biggest ever Haunted Castle event this Halloween.

From 21st October to 31st October The Haunted Castle promises fearful levels of fun for all ages during the day and then, after dark, the fright factor is cranked high as the Castle remains open until 9pm.



Take on The Haunted Castle this Halloween in the ultimate battle of bravery, the 666 challenge. Whether you’re a Scaredy Squire, a Daring Duke or a Brave Knight, the Haunted Castle challenges you to complete all six bravery tests to be in with a chance of winning a sleepover in our Knight’s Village.

How it works:

  1. Choose from the Scaredy Squire, Daring Duke or Brave Knight challenge when you enter the Castle gates
  2. Complete all six challenges
  3. Take a selfie at the castle, tag us and share it on social media using #666challenge
  4. We’ll choose a winner at random to sleepover in our Knight’s Village


SCAREDY SQUIRES can enjoy an array of spooky family attractions this Halloween.

Meet a host of bizarre characters throughout the day for fun, games and spooktacular shows on the DEAD CENTRE STAGE. Join a spooky Halloween trail and journey through the enchanted HAUNTED HOLLOWS where you’re sure to encounter spooky characters at every turn.

Our Wondrous Witches of THE WITCHES TOWER are searching for the secret to eternal youth! Perfect for younger children who want to help our friendly witches find the missing ingredient to the magic potion.


DARING DUKES may witness the tournament of the lost souls in FIRE JOUST. Hear the thunder of hooves and the crack of lances as the bravery, skill and agility of our resident twilight knights are tested to the limit in this blazing spectacular.

In the late 1800s, two children who inhabited the castle mysteriously disappeared. Will you discover what happened to the children or will you suffer the same fate as you enter the DOLL’S HOUSE.


It gets scarier after dark – when the shadows shift and the walls seem to whisper tales of woe – BRAVE KNIGHTS enter if you dare. Join us for an intense sonic performance that will test how susceptible you are to a visit from the other side in SÉANCE (fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival).

Are you brave enough to escape the plague-ridden characters of histories past in OUTBREAK 1349? The black death seems to have appeared in the Heart of England, contagion is instant and the symptoms are more violent – remember, not all walls were built to keep you out.

During the Haunted Castle, the spirits in THE CASTLE DUNGEON appear more restless. Witness some of the darkest, bloodiest and most frightening times in the Castle’s history as live actors and special effects bring to life these gruesome tales.
