Trick or Tweet

19 Oct 2019 - 3 Nov 2019

This Halloween-themed extravaganza, which is ideal for families, is packed with spooky craft-making activities and a scavenger hunt taking you through the ancient woodlands and wetlands of the reserve.

Discover the grim and gruesome side of nature, get into the Halloween spirit with the Pensthorpe team and find bugs and critters lurking around every corner. Visit our Daily Activities page to find out what extra activities we are running on the day of your visit.

For serious thrills and spills pay a visit to wicked WildRootz and hair-raising Hootz House,  our award winning adventure play areas packed with dens, tunnels, streams, towers and zip-wires!
