Something for the weekend? 30/10/09


It’s only the start of the week but chances are you’re already thinking about the next weekend. So we thought we’d make it aΒ  bit easier for you by suggesting a few great events going on across the UK that are perfect for a short break.

And as it’s Halloween, we’ve got a special ghostly selection to put a shiver down your spine and a smile on your face.

There are already a number of spooky walks in Edinburgh, but there’s something about the atmosphere of all hallows eve that makes them that little bit scarier! Choose from an underground stroll down the delightful ‘Damnation Alley’, and overground exploration that includes a visit to the delightful ‘Black Mausoleum’ – home to the infamous Mackenzie poltergeist. To be honest there are also childrens’ tours which sound perfectly scary enough, for us thank you very much.

Find out more on the Edinburgh walks website.

The Eden Project in Cornwall promises ‘No Tricks, Just Treats’ this Halloween (but then they would say that wouldn’t they?) This Friday and Saturday night there’s a Little Monster’s Ball, which has a whole host of activities for all the family, including potion making, ice skating, the opportunity to meet bats and owls, face painting, a disco and tasty treats to eat. Each Biodome has been given a spooky theme, so we’re sure you’ll find something to terrify you… a nice way, of course.

Caldicot Castle in Wales promises a Horrible Halloween – in the best way possible. There’s a day of spooky activities and workshops for kids on the Saturday, followed by a ghostly walking tour of the Castle and its grounds. There’s also a two course meal in the evening – assuming you’re not too scared to eat! And if you can handle it the weekend also promises terrifying stories and games. That’s right, even the games are terrifying at Caldicot Castle. We think it may be time for a lie down.

Please visit Caldicot Castle’s website for more info.
