Suitable for all ages, watch out for witches, ghosts, and creepy skeletons around every corner! There’s frightful fun to be had with photo opportunities and fancy dress competitions.

Be SPELLBOUND as you make a wish in the Wicked Wishing Well, warm up with ghoulishly good refreshments and hot drinks served from our vintage style coffee kiosk and visit the Gift Shop for frighteningly fabulous souvenirs and gothic gifts. The park has scenic picnic areas alongside the popular River Nidd, an adventure playground, and a Museum featuring petrified celebrity items.

23 October- 31st October 2021

10am – 5:30pm

Keep the children spellbound this October half term with a week of frightful fun!

The Halloween Adventure is spooky fun and never scary, so is suitable for even the smallest of monsters! Stockeld Park will be transformed for this year’s enchanting Halloween festivities!

There will be lots of spellbinding surprises in store in the Enchanted Forest, and little ones will love to explore our pumpkin patch, to pick their very own pumpkin to take home! Every paying child will get to choose a free pumpkin!

Spooky real live characters will be dotted around the park, making fantastic photo opportunities and enchanting interactions for the whole family to enjoy!

New for this year, skeletons have taken over Stockeld, with the skeleton trail! Will you spot them all? Make sure you don’t get trapped in the Hansels and Gretel’s jail! Try your luck in the graveyard golf – our brand new Halloween mini golf – undercover so you can play whatever the weather!

There’s something suitably scary for all ages, and for those who like to be truly frightened, will you dare to enter our haunted escape rooms!? Trapped inside The Basement or The Attic at one of the most haunted houses in Yorkshire, you and your team must use all your skills and knowledge to escape before your time runs out!

There’s always scarily good fun to be had at Stockeld Park!
