Have a Spooky Halloween in North Wales

15th October 2015 | by Whitehouse Leisure Park

As the nights draw in, the weather is cooling and thoughts turn to the changing seasons of autumn and winter, many holidaymakers will be visiting their holiday homes on Abergele Caravan Parks for long weekend breaks. Although the daylight hours are less, there are still many adventures to be had in the Abergele region of North Wales. Within a short time, you can be shopping in Cardiff City centre, having an enthralling weekend adventure or maybe even getting out your bucket and spade, depending on the weather. The end of the month of October brings us spooky Halloween. Here are some ideas for spine-tingling events being held around Static Caravan Parks, North Wales.

Ffestiniog Railway – Ghostly Train – Friday 31 October, 6.30pm – 9.00pm
Ride the Ghostly Train to Waunfawr from Caernarfon and return, in fancy dress and enjoy the scary surprises and competitions. It is advisable to book advance tickets.

Greenwood Forest Park, Y Felinheli, Gwynedd – 25 – 31 October
Halloween events commence on Saturday, 25th, with craft workshops to make a lantern, a mask, a Harry Potter style broomstick or the chance to bring a witch’s pet to life. Hot chocolate is on offer, free to those who come in fancy dress outfits.

Other events are on Monday, see a lifelike dinosaur in the park; Tuesday, Ricardo’s Halloween show; Friday, a spooky chamber of lights.

Conwy Ghost Bus – 23 – 31 October
Take a ghostly tour, if you dare, of Llandrillo cemetery where you could meet ghouls and ghosts and characters such as Harry the Old Sea Captain, or the Professor, to guide the way.

Halloween with a twist at Anglesey Sea Zoo – 31 October at 5.30pm
It is recommended that you bring a torch and wear fancy dress, on your visit to see fairy tale creatures with a twist at Anglesey Sea Zoo. Book in advance, with free entry for children in costumes and season ticket holders.

Visit the haunted Gwrych Castle
This historic castle built between 1812 and 1822 and inhabited initially by the Hesketh family, before falling into disrepair.  During World War II, the castle was used to house 200 refugees and after, was sold in 1948 when it was opened to the public and known as The Showplace of Wales. During the 1970s, it hosted jousting competitions and medieval markets, also being marketed as a bar and restaurant. After 1996, Gwrych Castle was left to the elements when it became derelict.  It is alleged that the castle is haunted, possibly by a young girl.

On-site facilities and activities
Maybe you prefer to spend your long weekend break relaxing at Static Caravan Parks, North Wales coast region, where there are plenty of activities and facilities onsite to keep the family happy, with no need to leave the Park unless you want to. Maybe hollow out a pumpkin lantern and take a walk around the Park grounds with the children. So why not have a Spooky Halloween at Whitehouse Leisure Park. In addition to the Children’s Play Park, we have an Amusement Arcade, a Snooker Room, Cabarets, Discos, Game Shows, Quizzes and Bingo.  A family restaurant serves delicious food at reasonable prices, offering a menu of family favourites. Or why not visit our Coffee lounge, The Living Room, where you can enjoy speciality coffees whilst relaxing next to our feature fireplace.
