Events in the Peak District | Halloween 2017

As that time of year rolls around again, we take a look at some of the most anticipated Halloween events in the Peak District this October. If you're staying at Blore Hall, these ones are easy to get to, and lots of fun.

1. Alton Towers Scarefest

For the thrill-seekers out there Alton Towers really goes all out for Halloween. All of the usual rides and rollercoasters are complimented by a programme of four live shows, entertaining youngsters with songs and dance and spooky stories. Late-night opening hours make for thrilling night time rides, there are scare mazes and a travelling circus of roaming characters along with lots more. Do you dare to come along?

2. Chatsworth House

The famous Chatsworth House has the added bonus of being a wonderful day out for any age, whatever the time of year. At Halloween there are extra attractions and activities for those who want to get stuck in: trails, crafts, storytelling, face painting, a visiting author and much more. Or stick to the land of the living and explore the exquisite stately home and impressive gardens at your own leisure.

3. Bolsover Castle

The English Heritage’s Bolsover Castle is a perfect, atmospheric location for a Halloween fright. This Medieval fortress is hosting a number of great events and activities for all ages. There is a Victorian storyteller and a potions master to help younger guests create their own ghoulish elixirs, and a fancy dress competition to take part in. If you dare, you can have a tour around the castle, hearing the stories of its paranormal past. Activities, food and drink will all be waiting for you.

There is also an over 16s ghost tour of the castle, happening early November. You’ll hear the tales of the castle’s dark past and stories of the ghosts still said to be haunting the castle to this day.

4. Matlock Farm Park Halloween Spooktacular

There is a week’s worth of events taking place including pumpkin carving, a treasure hunt and a guided tour by Matlock’s legendary headless horseman. Games will be taking place on the farm, and it’s a great event for youngsters.

5. Darley Abbey

This little village outside of Derby is steeped in history, and home to World Heritage Site Derwent Valley Mills. Historian and paranormal expert Richard Felix is hosting an exclusive tour of the village that will take you to a number of interesting hotspots and teach you all about the history and the spooky goings on.
