Halloween Jack

Victorian Penny Dreadfuls were sensational stories sold on the streets for a penny. Some of the spooky characters from these tall tales have come to life in the Lanhydrock nursery. Can you seek out the haunted treasure and escape the ghostly curse?

The Penny Dreadful Halloween experience will run from Saturday 15 October to Monday 31 October. Booking is not required, normal admission applies. 

This year Lanhydrock is hosting a walk-through Halloween experience in the nursery over the half-term break. Buy your own Penny Dreadful with a real Victorian penny, meet some creepy characters and a storyteller or two, create your own Penny Dreadful print in one of the linocut workshops and enter our competition to create a gruesome short story of your own. 

If you’re still up for some more outdoor Halloween adventures, take on the ghost hunter trail on two wheels around the Lodge trail. Grab your adventure map from the cycle hire. You can round off your visit with some toothsome treats in the Park Cafe and Stables Tea-room and pick up a spooky gift or two in the shop and plant centre.
