Halloween in the Lake District 2018
As well as a number of traditional events, Halloween in the Lake District is also a time for some light-hearted fun. Halloween is, in fact, a religious and spiritual celebration, in memory of those who have died over the years.
While church services and pagan festivals fall mostly on the 31st October, other events take place this Halloween in the Lake District throughout the week.
Halloween at Muncaster Castle
From the 23rd October to the 28th October, visitors can experience Halloween at Muncaster Castle. Believed to be on of the most haunted places in the Lake District, there’s fun for all the family. Although if you’re on a romantic spa break in Cumbria this October, you may want to leave your experience until after dark. In fact, if you wish to enter the late-night maze, you will soon be longing for the luxury comforts of your spa hotel.
Ravenglass and Eskdale Ghost Trains
While the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway attracts tourists all year round, Halloween in the Lake District is something a little different. After all, you wouldn’t expect usual service when it comes to the perfect setting for a ghost train. Look out for special services running Friday 26th October and Saturday 27th October.
Ghostly Galleon with Ullswater Steamers
For one day only the famous Ullswater Steamers is transformed into the Ghostly Galleon. Although don’t be too afraid, your host “Stu Di Doo” is likely to keep things pre-watershed. The ghost ship is due to set sail on Saturday 27th October.
Halloween at the World of Beatrix Potter
Just down the road from our spa hotel in Windermere is one of Cumbria’s most popular attractions. The World of Beatrix Potter is home to Peter Rabbit, along with an insight into other works by the great author. Although you may be away on a spa break, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy something a little child-friendly.
Lakeland Ghost Walks
There are a number of ghosts to be discovered in the Lake District National Park. In particular those in and around Windermere. Featuring everything from the haunting of Calgarth Hall, Gylpin’s wild boar and the alleged sightings of “Brownessie”.
