Spooky Goings On At Bolton Castle

Come and enjoy a spooky Halloween at award winning Bolton Castle, near Leyburn, from Saturday 24th to Saturday 31st October

Included in the usual admission price, the castle is offering a range of fun experiences suitable for the whole family to blow away those cobwebs and they have worked hard to ensure your visit is Covid safe.

Follow the trail around the castle courtyard and meet characters from its history; the creepy witches, the rats and bats, the headless man, and the pumpkins.

Come already dressed in your Halloween outfit, or alternatively have a photo opportunity dressed as a witch or castle guard with the spooky castle as your backdrop. Put yourself into the stocks and pillory, or dare you lift the coffin lid or go alone into the dungeon?

There will also be storytelling in the Great Chamber on the 24th, 25th, 27th, 28th, 30th & 31st October at both 11am and 2pm. These events are included within the usual admission charge but are ticketed events and places must be booked so numbers can be monitored. A maximum of 30 people at each session with family groups socially distanced from each other.
