Spooky Experiences in Cornwall this Halloween

Meadow Lakes Holiday Park

Halloween in Cornwall!

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to get spooky! If you fancy something spine-tingling and hair raising, then follow Meadow Lakes’ guide for some ghoulish fun in Cornwall this October.

There are many spooktacular experiences to discover in Cornwall this Autumn half-term, so it’s time to get ready for ghosts, ghouls and nightmarish screams…!

Bodmin Jail at Bodmin

Prisons aren’t exactly the most welcoming of places at the best of times, but when they are positioned on the edge of the Bodmin Moor and have a long and chequered past, the chill factor hits overdrive!  Paranormal experiences are commonplace here and its little wonder, with 50 public hangings taking place at Bodmin Jail between 1785 and 1909 and many more prisoners subjected to misery and despair in its crowded cells…

The paranormal jail tour allows you to explore the depths of Bodmin Jail and learn about the prisoners who lived and died behind its crumbling walls.  Along with a look into the history of the jail, you will find out about past sightings within the jail, which include floating orbs of light, strange shadows and unexplained sudden drops in temperature.  You might even catch a glimpse of the restless spirits roaming the dark hallways… Eek!

If you aren’t easily spooked, then why not go for the full ‘After Dark’ experience?  You’ll get to spend the night walking around the dark, damp jail…  But be warned, eerie footsteps, rattling keys and dragging noises are often heard, as well as ghostly figures seen roaming the balconies.  Dare you enter after dark…?

Spooky Stories at Godolphin House in Helston

Venture into the Undercroft and listen to spine-tingling tales of ghosts and ghouls at the National Trust’s Godolphin House, this October Half Term, with spooky stories to intrigue children and adults alike.  Hear about the ghostly white lady who haunts Godolphin at night, of mysterious black dogs that prowl the nearby mines and learn about the foul deeds of the Witch of Fraddam!

Flambards at Helston

Enjoy Flambards Trick or Treat Fireworks display this Halloween, where families can enjoy goosebump inducing rides and a spooky pumpkin trail in the creepy Victorian Village throughout the day then watch fireworks light up the sky in the evening.  Headlining the celebrations will be a fantastic George Michael Tribute show, so you can sing and dance the night away!

Rides & Attractions close 30/60 minutes before firework display at 7:30pm.
