Halloween in Somerset

When it comes to celebrating Halloween, there is nowhere better than being right here in Somerset!

When you think of your favourite horror films, you always spot the same things, misty country lanes, large imposing houses and local people with local traditions, Somerset has all these things as well as a whole host of attractions offering Spooktacular events during the Halloween season! And of course, being steeped in history and rife with folk stories and tales of local witches and supposed hauntings, Somerset is a great place to spend this time of year. Learn more about the scarier side of Somerset by visiting some of the museums in the region, such as the Museum of Somerset where you’ll get to take part in some spine-tingling lessons!

Many of the area’s towns and cities already run ghost walks, where brave souls can take guided tours around supposed haunted areas, but have you ever tried one during Halloween? The spooks and scares are rife with these tours and the stakes are doubled during All Hallows Eve! Maybe if you’re (un)lucky you might get to experience some of these creepy goings on yourself!

Whether you’re looking for a family friendly activity or something seriously scary, there is something for everyone here.

Many of the region’s attractions and hotels are offering special spooky twists to all your favourite events to get you into the spirit including gothic falconry, ghost tours through castles, hotels and museums and more! The region’s National Trust places, for example,  are full of family-friendly fun that offer just the right amount of tricks and treats! Even Haynes’ Motor Museum is getting in on the action!

If you’re brave enough why not take on one of the region’s escape rooms which you can guarantee will create special Halloween themed challenges during this time of year or head into Wookey Hole Caves for a spooky tour? You might even get a chance to hold an audience with the famous witch! If claustrophobia is one Halloween step too far, stay out in the open and join in a zombie walk – just make sure they don’t catch you! Or if you’re looking for a more relaxed fright, why not spend a few nights at one of our region’s hotels and indulge in a murder mystery weekend or a creepy Halloween ball?
For the kids, make sure to visit the coast where you can take part in Halloween fairs, beach parties and more!

If you’re someone that scares easily but you still want to get in on the action, don’t worry, there is plenty for you to get involved with from costume competitions, themed museum tours and even a Harry Potter themed party. 

We all know that Somerset is famous for its produce and at this time of year you’ll find plenty of themed foods. Go Pumpkin picking at one of the region’s farms and show off your art skills by carving it afterwards? Try your hand at apple bobbing with some freshly picked Somerset apples or make your own autumnal treats such as toffee apples.
