Scary Fairy Tales Illuminate Halloween Trail at Ushaw

This Halloween Weekend, discover a magical yet ominous realm at Ushaw Historic House, Chapel & Gardens. Where iconic fairy tales are re imagined with a spine-chilling twist. On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of October 2023, prepare yourself for an experience that delicately balances wonder and terror.

A Night of Progressive Fright, Ushaw's meticulously crafted trail takes you through an enchanted landscape that grows increasingly unsettling as the night wears on. Choose your level of scare from three-time slots: Twilight, Moonlight, and Midnight. The later you venture, the more intense your experience—perfect for those who dare to face their darkest fears. Along the way, don’t forget to capture the memories as we’ll have a plethora of spooky photo opportunities.

Amidst the shadows and whispers, the acclaimed Activate Theatre troupe adds an extra

layer of allure and suspense. With haunting portrayals of classic characters, they promise a

mesmerising finale that you wont soon forget.

"Our Illuminated Halloween Trail is sure to be a memorable experience" says Andrew

Heard, Ushaw's Visitor Programmes Manager "This isn't merely a spooky stroll; it's a spine- tingling journey through stories re imagined to intrigue and terrify"

Given the growing excitement and limited availability, booking your tickets in advance is

crucial. Tickets are available at and priced at £10 for

adults and £7 for children, with on-site parking included.
