Halloween in Blackpool

Blackpool doesn’t just do light – we also do dark pretty well, too. There is a spectral host of great fun to be had during the creepiest time of year, whether you’re a family with small children, a family with older children, a couple or group of grown-ups determined to show how brave you all are!

Do you like a good scare or two? There are plenty of spooky activities and events to sink your teeth into and, with Halloween creeping ever closer, now is the time to start planning.

If things that go ‘bump’ in the night aren’t your cup of witches’ brew, our attractions are still open with their usual fantastic experiences. Get ready to see some art in the dark during Lightpool Festival from October 20-28 and, remember, the Blackpool Illuminations are shining nightly, too.

Family Frights

Halloween can be the most fun when the kids are old enough to get spooked whilst being old enough to laugh it off.

There are plenty of spine-chilling happenings in Blackpool that they’ll absolutely love, and they’ll learn a thing or two, as well!

Grown-up Ghouls

Hallowe’en isn’t just for the kids . . . adults are in need of a good haunt, too!

Whilst we have lots of families visiting Blackpool, couples and groups of friends also visit in their droves. There’s plenty to creep up on adults, from spine-chilling attractions to exceptional entertainment!
