Dover Castle 

SUITABLE FOR

Children

Head to Dover Castle for a fantastical day out this Halloween half-term. Explore the castle on our brand-new adventure trail inspired by Cressida Cowell’s bestselling Wizards of Once series. Will you find the ingredients for the Spell to get rid of Witches and uncover the location of the Cup of Second Chances? Come along in frightful fancy dress to enter our competition and maybe win a prize. It’s going to be a really wizard day out!

You can also meet our ghoulish guide who will tell tales of ghostly goings on at Dover Castle. Try your hand at becoming a monster hunter with our range of hands on training activities, and meet the comedy castle rat who will entertain you with stories and songs of his explorations of the castle.

Don’t miss the fantastical dragon and grim reaper puppets prowling around the keep yard and watch in awe as the shadow puppet theatre creates magical shapes in the darkness. Activities and shows will be at select times of the day and are subject to weather conditions. Plus, on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 October only be amazed as our birds of prey take to the skies in a dramatic flying display of gothic folklore.
