Fancy a BEANO-inspired Hallowe’en Half Term Quest?

Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight is to host a BEANO Hallowe’en Quest next month, a half term treat for fans of Dennis, Minnie and company.

Running daily from 15th – 30th October, gather your little monsters, book tickets online, and prepare for a ghoulishly good day out at Carisbrooke Castle. Follow Dennis, Gnasher and friends to solve creepy clues on the fun family quest around the grounds.

Then, meet costumed performers to hear tall tales of the strange, the supernatural and the downright silly.

“With so much spooky stuff to see and do, it’s a phantomtastic, great value day out for families,” the castle’s website announcement declares.

Admission to the event is included in the standard admission ticket price. If you are an English Heritage member, then your ticket will be free. You don’t need to book your visit in advance, but you will always get the best price and guaranteed entry by booking online ahead of your visit.

Sitting high and proud at the heart of the Isle of Wight, Carisbrooke Castle has been an artillery fortress, king’s prison and a royal summer residence. Today, it’s the quintessential romantic castle, with plenty to see and enjoy in the fresh open air. Experience far reaching panoramic views from high castle walls, or wander the moat to discover King Charles I’s bowling green. Enjoy the tranquil Princess Beatrice Garden and stunning St Nicholas’ Chapel, all before before meeting the adorable Carisbrooke donkeys.
