Halloween is upon us once more in the UK’s most haunted city.

Things are normally winding down in preparation for half-term and it’s a week for some of us to relax and rejuvenate before the lead up to Christmas – but this year is no ordinary year.

Plans may have had to be cancelled, trick-or-treating won’t be the same, but there are still lots of exciting things happening in York that everyone can enjoy safely.

We’ve put together a guide for things to do during the half-term and Halloween period.

Join IndieYork for a Medieval & Magical Treasure Trail around the city with lots of fun prizes up for grabs, or visit the Bar Convent to track down a gunpowder plotter. And there’s fun for all the family at the National Railway Museum and Fairfax House this half-term.

Halloween is going to be a bit different this year but there are still some spooktacular things in store…

Hunt for goblins with York Mumbler at Rowntree Park, or join in with The Little Ghost Hunt – if you dare! Make sure to catch a frightening film at Daisy Dukes Spooks Halloween Experience with added spooky twists. There’s Pumpkin Carving at Plush Cafe (with cocktails for the adults) and Halloween chocolate decorating at York’s Chocolate Story.

With fun for children and adults alike, who says that Halloween is just for kids.
