Halloween at York Castle Museum

About

Delve into the spooky history of Halloween's traditions and hear the truth about Yorkshire's real witches in two special new tours at York Castle Museum this October half term.

Fearless families can enter the Museum to discover the history of Halloween through our new family friendly guided tour, looking at the origins of famous Halloween traditions, such as trick-or-treating, and exploring the past beliefs about witches and evil spirits.

A second tour, suitable for older teens and adults, takes you back as far as the early seventeenth century and explores the stories of Yorkshire women labelled as witches, their trials and the fatal outcomes.

Both tours can be booked now at www.yorkcastlemuseum.org.uk
