Spooky ghost walks around the region’s most haunted historic venues, Halloween banquets and ghost walks are all on offer in Warwickshire this October – along with lots of family-friendly activities across half-term.

Members of Shakespeare’s England, the Destination Management Organisation for South Warwickshire, are bringing the region’s rich ghostly history to life alongside offering exclusive October half-term deals.

Stratford Town Walk will be hosting its famous ghost walks around the town’s most infamous paranormal hotspots with the haunted tearoom, the witch of Sheep Street, the ghost of a jilted bride, and the story of a young girl buried alive all told by a spooky costumed guide.

For more Halloween entertainment, Coombe Abbey Hotel is hosting its Haunted Halloween Banquet with live entertainment over a four-course meal and goblets of wine and ale in the spooky setting of Coombe’s Abbeygate.

But for families wanting to avoid anything spooky this October, Coombe Abbey is offering a new half-term package with a stay in a family room with dinner, bed and breakfast plus an exclusive children’s pack for little adventurers before they swing through the trees at the hotel’s new Go Ape attraction.

For families wanting to try something different this half-term, there’s also the British Motor Museum’s rocket-fuelled activities with the chance to make your own recycled rocket or visit the Science Shows with Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin for perfect family fun.

Helen Peters, Chief Executive Officer for Shakespeare’s England, said it was great members are getting into the spooky spirit with exclusive October half-term and Halloween events.

She said: “There’s a really exciting range of events on offer this Autumn in our area with exclusive discounts on October half-term stays for families through to Halloween-themed ghostly activities to get families into the seasonal spirit.

“Our towns have such rich histories; they are full of historic spooky tales and stories from Warwick and Kenilworth Castles to Shakespeare’s Stratford, which are filled with tales of witches, murder mysteries and ghostly-happenings and these stories continue to draw people to visit.

“This summer has been particularly positive in terms of visitor numbers to the region and we’re hoping this trend will continue as we head into autumn.”
