A full week packed with Oktoberfest fun! Coinciding with half term for many, there’ll be German foods served in our Cafes and visiting engines on the lines. Look out for more details including which engines will be making an appearance this week. Normal train fares apply.
Spoil someone special – or yourself; why not? – with Afternoon Tea in the beautiful Billiard Room at Muncaster Castle, overlooking the Castle lawns. Available on selected Sundays through the summer season, what a fabulous gift this would make too!
Afternoon Tea in the Castle comprises a selection of sandwiches and savouries, homemade cakes and scones with jam and cream and your choice of tea or coffee. Optionally you can add a glass of fizz too.
Tickets cost £30 or £35 to include prosecco. Included in the price is general entry for the day to Muncaster’s Gardens and Hawk and Owl Centre (from 10.30am), the breathtaking Sky Hunters bird display at 2.00pm plus World of Owls morning display at 11.30am and entry to tour the Castle’s public rooms from 12 noon to 4pm. Tea is served from 2.45pm in the Castle. It’s a whole day out!
Dare you visit one of Britain’s most haunted castles this Halloween?! The Muncaster Monster Cabaret with continuous entertainment, the Scary Maze (not recommended for under 12s particularly in the evenings), the Cannon ‘firing’ at 6pm with Foppletwig the Genie-hunter, the Ghostly Grotto with spooky crafts, activities and face-painting and lots more, are all included in Halloween General Entry ticket prices.
See the Hawk & Owl Centre’s fantastic Twilight Owls display when our falconers fly a selection of our beautiful owls in the gardens after dark (separate tickets required), plus other ‘add-on’ activities. Check our website for final lineup.
A theatrical event in the Castle and scripted new each year, the Halloween Castle Tour will run at set times through the evenings. These sell out every year so book early to have your choice of date and time. The Castle Tour ticket is a ‘super ticket’ including general entry and daytime Castle visit but not the Twilight Owls.
The site opens from 10.30am through to mid-evening with Halloween activities commencing from around lunchtime.
