Late-Night Terror at Arnos Vale, Bristol

The Morbid Curiosity tour in Bristol’s Arnos Vale Cemetery is a truly frightening way to spend Halloween. The tour involves a guided tour of the cemetery’s gravestones and tells the stories of some of the souls who are buried there. Is there a scarier way to spend Halloween than in a graveyard listening to ghost-stories? This is a classic, spooky way to enjoy the most ghoulish night of the year. But make sure to book your spot early because the tour is very popular and is known to sell out.

Ghouls Galore at Birmingham’s Bone-chilling Live Scarefest

The stunning grounds of The Botanical Gardens, Birmingham, become a whole lot creepier late at night. The bushes, trees and shrubs come alive with Halloween spirit but the word is that there is something else to it. The Garden of Ghouls teeming with terrifying beasts and scary monsters. The spook trail features live actors who are guaranteed to make you jump out of your skin. What better way to begin a Halloween adventure? But this is not for the faint of heart. If you have younger children, you might want to consider the pre-7pm trail if you want to spare the nightmares. Either way, it is one of the best Halloween events in the city and you’d be a ghoul to miss it!

The gardens come alive at night!
