There’s plenty going on in and near Coventry this October in celebration of Halloween, and it’s not too late to get involved with tickets still available to some of the city’s best goings-on.

Fright Nights at Kenilworth Castle

Are you brave enough to explore the castle after dark? Visit Kenilworth Castle for a terrifying treat this Halloween and wander the spine-chilling ruins of the castle. 

As the castle gates creak open you’ll soon discover you’re not alone, as creepy characters from the past make themselves known. You’ll be transported to a world where gruesome goings-on are commonplace. Don’t miss malevolent monks and a court jester who took one trick too far.

Kenilworth Castle has been named as one of English Heritage’s most haunted sites, have you got what it takes to experience their Fright Night?

There is some availability on 30 and 31 October, both from 6:00 pm till 7:30 pm.

Go Ape at nightfall

Head up to the top level of GoApe’s Treetop Challenge course… in the dark!

You’ll tackle sky-high platforms, wobbly crossings and speedy zip wires on the 500-acres of Coombe Abbey Country Park.

If this wasn’t enough, you’ll also take on the 13-metre plummet – a sheer drop into the void – if you’re brave enough that is.

Prices start from £26 on 31 October, 1 and 2 November from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
