What is Halloween at Blenheim Palace?

A SPOOKY FUN-FILLED TRAIL FOR ALL THE FAMILY – with new immersive installations for 2022

As Halloween creeps closer and the days shorten, a mysterious mist falls across the gardens at Blenheim Palace. Join with family and friends to wander from dusk into darkness between one ghostly space to another.  Watch out for flickering flames in a fiendish fire garden, daring fire artists and grinning pumpkins aglow. Wind your way through the illuminated haunted woods filled with creepy neon cobwebs, ghastly ghouls, wicked witches, larger-than life spiders and beastly bats. Then discover the Secret Garden filled with more hidden surprises. Could it be a trick of the light or do things really do go “bump in the night?”

There’s a delicious twist to the sweetest of treats on offer. Enjoy a fiendishly good *hot toddy or devilishly decadent *hot chocolate and toast a marshmallow with someone special.

Your very spookiest Halloween starts here. Limited capacity with timed entry. Plan now to secure the date and time of your choice.

Is the Trail suitable for wheelchair or mobility users?

Halloween at Blenheim Palace is an event presented in the natural landscape. Whilst every effort is made to make the trail fully accessible, by its very nature it will on occasion cover some difficult terrain with a number of varying gradients. These areas can be particularly challenging during inclement weather. In these circumstances there will be additional steward support available for assistance. 

Can I bring my own wheelchair or can wheelchairs be provided?

Mobility scooters will not be available at Halloween at Blenheim Palace. You are therefore welcome to bring your own.

Can I bring a carer?

Disabled ticket holders are entitled to one free carer ticket for an essential carer / companion. Free carer tickets need to be booked in advance.

If you require more than one carer, please visit Customer Service here. You will need your Booking Reference Number at hand.

Is there a 'quieter access' session?

Wednesday 26th October will see the Halloween trail open early at 5:45pm for audiences with specific access requirements. Guests booked onto the quiet access session should aim to enter at 5:45pm, with volumes returning to standard levels from 6:15pm.

These sessions are created for young people and adults who would love to experience Halloween at Blenheim Palace without the usual numbers of people and at reduced audio volumes. These sessions will also be early enough that they will just about start in twilight making it a less daunting transition in to the dark.

The capacity of these sessions will be limited to ensure that the trail remains less crowded and more relaxed. Audiences will be the first group on-site and therefore all areas will be relatively clear.

It should be noted that on many of our trails the path network is not tarmac, and although there are stewards along the route to assist you, the trail will follow the natural contours of the venue. When booking, please talk to our staff about any additional support you may need for exiting the illuminated trail through quieter areas or help with parking closer to the start of the trail.

Ticket prices for these special access sessions are the same as the rest of trail - with free carer tickets where required. To book these sessions, please use this link

What will happen if the weather is bad? Will the trail be cancelled?

If the weather presents a hazard and a risk to safety, any decision to cancel the trail will be taken by 2pm on the day. You will be notified by email and text message and you will be informed of the re-booking process.

If I am unable to attend on a different day, can I get a refund?

If the trail is cancelled due to weather and ticket holders are not able to attend an alternative night offered, then a refund will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Where a refund is due, the ticket must be returned within 28 days following the trail date. We can also offer a voucher for the following year.

I have booked for the wrong day – can I transfer over to another day?

Yes, please log into your order via the Customer Service tab in order to exchange your tickets for another date, subject to availability.

Trail partners will be working together to make improvements to sustainability and reduce the ecological impact of the trails – more information will be shared here as trail plans are developed.
