Spook-tacular New Trail at Blenheim Palace for Halloween 2023


Halloween at Blenheim Palace is back with a new sensationally spook-tacular trail during autumn half term (20-29 Oct) and tickets are on sale now.

Families, friends and loved ones can enjoy the perfect Halloween experience, wandering the grounds of the magnificent 18th century property in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside.

Blenheim Palace CEO Dominic Hare said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Raymond Gubbay Ltd to host a very special Halloween half term this year. It is a wonderful chance to explore the Palace’s beautiful gardens as you’ve never seen them before, with new shocks and surprises awaiting visitors to our atmospheric illuminated trail."

When darkness falls, a chill descends in the Palace grounds in which ghosts, ghouls and witches emerge to deliver a host of tricks and treats along a spook-tacular trail.

Navigate your way through the scary spider tunnel where you will be met by fantastic fire performers - but beware the cloaked horseman lurking in the mist. Discover demons, listen to the werewolves’ howl and dodge the grinning pumpkins as you approach the vampires’ crypt, keeping a keen eye out for the fanged monster inside.

As you explore the trail, settle your nerves with a delicious selection of sweetest treats with a twist. Enjoy a fiendishly good *hot toddy or devilishly decadent *hot chocolate and toast a marshmallow or two.

Your spookiest Halloween starts here. Join in the madness and don’t forget to dress in your own creepy costume – you may just do a little scaring yourself!

*separate charges apply

Halloween at Blenheim Palace is an unmissable outdoor experience, designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
