As the temperature drops and autumn leaves fall Rowallane Garden takes on a different eerie feel. Come along and enjoy some autumnal fun with your ‘little spooks’ as the National Trust plans a perfectly petrifying Hallowe’en.

Every weekend throughout October (excluding 17 and 18) pop into the café where your little witch or wizard can dunk their apples in molten chocolate and take their poison chocolatey apple treat home to enjoy.

Have some awesome autumn fun in your spooky costume and see how many of your ‘50 things to do before your 11 ¾’ you can tick off, from hunting for bugs to catching a falling leaf and playing conkers.

Prepare to be spooked on 17 and 18 October at the spooktacular Ghosts and Gourds weekend. The Garden will come to life with a terrifying ghost trail, spooky stories, sinister characters from the Premiere Circus and your little ones can be transformed with fearsome face painting. To top off the day why not behead, scoop out and carve your very own pumpkin to take home with you and ward away the evil spirits this Hallowe’en.

Ghosts and Gourds takes place between 12noon and 5pm on both Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October. Normal Admission applies with National Trust Members Free Admission.

Rowallane Garden is open daily throughout October from 10am to 6pm.
