A Halloween Tale at Cheddar Gorge and Caves - Wednesday October 23 to Sunday November 3

This Halloween sees The Natural Theatre Company take over Gough's cave with some "strange happenings" going on underground. Your little detectives will help to crack clues as they come across "infamous literary characters" such as Dracula, Frakenstein's monster and Bill Sikes.

The event runs from Wednesday (October 23) to Sunday (November 3) with the actors performing between 11am and 3:30pm. The Halloween Tale is included in the usual day ticket so you are able to visit the other attractions around the gorge too. The Cheddar Gorge website says: "While we have made every effort to ensure this event can be enjoyed by all ages, please note there will be live actors in the cave which very young children may find frightening."

Halloween at Wookey Hole – Various dates & Times

Dubbed as the "home of Halloween" on the Wookey Hole website, the site in Wells promises spooky fun throughout the half term. Visitors will see costume characters including the Witch of Wookey Hole, though with a free gift included, it sounds like the witch could be more sweet than scary.
