Last year we invited visitors to see harvest festival-themed decorations in Palace House and take part in activities and traditional fun for all the family celebrating the magic of autumn.

TRADITIONAL SOUL CAKES

Visitors could head to the Victorian Kitchen to watch the cook bake soul cakes, a traditional autumn recipe.

FACE PAINTing

Younger visitors could have their face painted with a ghoulish design. What did you choose to be?

All Hallows Trail

We invited visitors to follow the All Hallows trail to discover fascinating seasonal facts and learn about the origins and folklore of Halloween and All Hallows Day.

Mythical Creatures

Did you find the fairy doors along the Mill Pond Walk? How about the magnificent tree carvings of a griffin, the Hydra and the mythical Green Man?

HIDDEN SPIDERS

There were spiders hiding across the attraction, from the National Motor Museum to Beaulieu Abbey and Palace House – did you mange to spot where these eight-legged critters have gone?

CREATIVE crafts

Visitors could discover their creative side with special arts and crafts activities to get stuck into.

SPOOKY STORIES

Autumn is the time to watch out for restless spirits and ghosts have often been seen and heard in Palace House over the centuries. Visitors could listen to costumed guides as they told chilling ghost stories from the past.
