Autumn is almost here. Fresh crisp mornings, roaring log fires and hot chocolate on the menu. It also means half-term and Halloween! So, let’s take you through some spooktacular things to do in the October half-term in West Wales.

Let’s start in Pembrokeshire with Carew Castle. Join a family-friendly spooky tour of the castle. You must keep your eyes peeled as you listen to stories of ghostly sightings; you never know what you might see. With ghosts lurking in all the dark corners, it is in your hands to hunt them down to win a spooky prize. Or do you fancy a haunted house? The Tidal Mill is back for a second year of spooky scares! Are you brave enough to make your way through the dark, haunted Mill all decorated for Halloween? Watch out for things that might be lurking in the gloom…

This next one is not for the easily scared. The zombie trail is back at Pembrey Country Park in Carmarthenshire and this exhilarating adventure will put your bravery to the ultimate test. Are you brave enough? As you navigate the spooky woodlands, you’ll feel your heart race and adrenaline surge through your veins. But fear not! With determination and quick thinking, you’ll conquer the challenge and emerge victorious. If you are thinking this sounds a bit too scary for me, don’t worry, they also have spooky crazy golf. A mesmerizing crazy golf course illuminated by eerie lights, while mischievous spooks lurk in the shadows. It’s a Halloween golf extravaganza you won’t want to miss!

Or do you fancy something more classic, like pumpkin picking? West Wales is surrounded by fantastic farms, making it the perfect place for your annual pumpkin picking. If you are visiting Pembrokeshire, take a trip to Tenby’s Pumpkin Patch. Explore the fields for your perfect pumpkin or wander the indoor barn where you can take spooky photos with their Halloween backdrop. Afterwards, head in to Tenby for post pumpkin picking treats!

Visit The Silver Mountain Experience this Halloween for some ghoulish fun for all the family near Aberystwyth, Ceredigion. Enjoy some fun Halloween activities including some spooky twists on their guided tours, as well as pumpkin carving and more. If the pumpkin carving sounds interesting to you, have fun decorating your pumpkin, and take it home with you once you’ve finished.
