Looking for some spooky events to attend this Halloween? Look no further than devilish Devon! Devon is steeped in ancient history, with numerous fascinating folk stories originating from Dartmoor and Exmoor. The infamous Hounds of the Baskervilles were known to have haunted the moors, which apparently inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write the Sherlock Holmes mystery.
There are plenty of frighteningly fun days and nights out during the month of October. Whether you’re looking for a family friendly activity or something for the adults, you’ll find it here in Devon. With scary walking trails, pumpkin carving, theatrical shows and even fancy-dress discos, there’s something for everyone!

Crealy Spookfest is back and bigger than ever this October half term. With a whole host of fearsome activities, you can expect Halloween shows, the Creaky Hotel, singing pumpkins and a scarecrow maze, as well as a FREE pumpkin for every child.
