Beaulieu fantasy and folklore at harvest themed half-term

Autumnal fantasy and folklore are part of harvest-themed celebrations with Halloween ghost stories, crafts and activities at Beaulieu this October half-term from 20th - 28th.

Get into the spirit of the season with harvest festival-themed decorations in the ancestral Montagu family home of Palace House. Then head to the Victorian Kitchen to watch the cook bake traditional autumn soul cakes, while younger visitors have their faces painted with a ghoulish design and join in with special arts and crafts activities.

Autumn is the time to watch out for restless spirits and ghosts have often been seen and heard in Palace House over the centuries. Listen to costumed guides as they tell chilling ghost stories from the past. Then search for spiders in a hunt for the eight-legged critters which are hidden around the house.

Why not hop on the Veteran Bus or take a ride on the high-level Monorail to see the sights of Beaulieu?
