Halloween at Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens

Enjoy a hauntingly great day out at Leonardslee this Halloween. 

Calling all ghouls and boys,

You’re invited to a spooktacular day out filled with joy.

For some ghoulish fun, 

come and spend the day in the sun. 

Things To Do This Halloween

Are you ready to complete the Skelehut, conquer the Boo-stackle course or see animals that go bump in the night? 

We have a variety of spooktacular events to choose from along our pumpkin trail! 

Make your way through the gardens and begin the Skelehunt to see if you can spot all the skeleton creatures hiding in Camellia Grove.

Then follow the trail past our Wallaby Enclosure with a few hidden surprises to test your nerves! 

Head round the corner to tackle the Boo-stackle course but the trail doesn't stop there, keep an eye on the pumpkin trail until it’s time to be brave and meet our creepy critters. 

The Courtyard Cafe is our finishing point, where spooky crafting is there to delight! 

Skelehunt, Boo-stackle Course & Spooky Crafts

Available all day, every day


As animals of the night 

are hiding out of sight, 

Begin the hunt,

Just don't get a FRIGHT!

List the name of the animal skeleton you find hiding in Camellia Grove.
