Best time to visit?

Many people arrive late afternoon  - this is good if you want to experience day and night (we always recommend seeing the gardens in daylight to fully experience the Model Village itself and some of the miniature characters will only be visible in daylight).

The best Halloween experience is after dark. To avoid missing some of the effects ensure you stay until after dark.

Don't be put off by the autumn weather - damp/misty evenings are quieter and much more eerie!

How scary is it?

Our Halloween event is largely aimed at families, offering a light-hearted Halloween experience with spoof-horror displays and themes. It’s not a scare-fest, but there will be some miniature mild horror/gore scenes on display all day around the gardens and some halloween displays in the labyrinth. The after-dark lighting and sound effects, along with the workshop tour, create a wonderful Halloween atmosphere that even the adults enjoy. .

The workshop of horrors tour, though optional, is one of the highlights of our Halloween event and the most spooky part, offering a fun but dark and eerie experience. It may be unsuitable for some very young children (under about 4/5 years).

NOTE: The tour is along dimly lit uneven paths and through workshops unsuitable for double pushchairs. Sturdy footwear is essential. Access to the tour may be possible for wheelchairs and small mobility scooters, but there are steep hills entering & leaving the gardens, please see 'Accessibility' for general information about access

Haunted House 4D - uses darkness, some seat movement, 3D mild horror effects, ghosts and creepy crawlies and may be unsuitable for some very young children under about 6/7 years. Due to seat movement and flashing lights it may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions. For more details SEE HERE

Can we visit day and evening?

Yes, you can use our free return photo-pass. Keep your admission receipt and, before you leave, validate it in the gift shop to get a photo-pass. This enables everyone in the photo to return once, for free, later the same day or within 7 days. Important - you will not be able to return for free without the photo-pass - get one to avoid disappointment, even if you are unsure you will use it.

Can we get something to eat?

Gulliver's tearoom serves light bites during the afternoon - sandwiches, paninis, pasties, cakes, snacks, hot & cold drinks.

Don't miss one of Torquay's premier family Halloween events!
