Spooky goings on at Traquair this Halloween!



Ghostly Castle Tours

Friday 27th October & Saturday 28th October
7pm & 9pm.
 
Halloween Fun Day
Sunday 29th October
11am – 4pm.
 
The ghosts will be out at Traquair this Halloween so come along for a spooky experience; a ghost tour at night if you dare or bring the family for a fun day of Halloween themed games and activities for all ages.
 
For an unforgettable visit to Traquair our ghostly castle tours promise to be a spine chilling experience when you are guided through the house and may have some unexpected surprises. As the wind whistles through the walls you will meet some of the past inhabitants of this ancient home and learn about their stories living as Jacobites and Catholics in dangerous times.
 
You will even descend into the dungeons of the Tower of London to discover what life was like as an imprisoned Jacobite before relaxing in the comfort of the eighteenth century Dining Room for a glass of mulled wine.
 
Halloween suppers can be booked at the 1745 Cottage Restaurant before or after your tour.
 
On Sunday 29th October the Halloween Family Fun Day is a great day out for all ages. This year there will be magic shows with Quantum Magic, creep crawly animal handling sessions, the famous Spooky Passage Experience as well as tarot readings, ghost stories in the woods, a witches and wizards workshop, scavenger hunts, ghost hunting in the maze; spooky face painting and traditional Halloween Games.
