If your children don’t know that there’s more to Hallowe’en than witches hats and sweets, head down to one of the National Trust spookiest sites this weekend for a dose of ghostly tales and haunted houses.
From Hallowe’en storytelling to castle quests, there’s spooky action happening across the UK at National Trust sites. At Ham House in Surrey, catch a whiff of rose perfume from Duchess who haunts the hallways. But watch out at Treasurer’s House in York as over 140 ghosts of Roman soldiers will be out and on guard! And if you head to Felbrigg Hall in Norfolk, keep an eye out for ghostly William Windham III, who often pops in to visit the books in his beloved library.
A scary end to the half-term holidays!
