Spooky Halloween Walk - Preston Park

SOLD OUT - Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council brings you 'A Curious Halloween Quest' at Preston Park Museum & Grounds this Halloween.

Are you brave enough to join in the fun this year at Preston Park Museum and Grounds' Halloween Spooky Walk?

There are two walks available - one especially designed for younger children (aged under 11) and their families and one more suited to more thrill-seeking older children (aged 11 and over) and adults.

4pm and 5pm - Solve the curious Halloween quest by finding clues and unlock the magic. This spooky walk is aimed at children aged 11 and under and their adults.

7pm and 8pm - Only the boldest will dare to venture into the woods! These sessions are aimed at children aged 11 and over. This walk is difficult to access for wheelchairs and pushchairs due to the uneven surface in the woods.

Vehicle access to Preston Park is only available via the special event coaches which is included in the cost of your ticket. There will be strictly no parking available on site within Preston Park grounds or the surrounding residential areas. It is advisable to use the event coaches to travel to and from the Halloween Spooky Walk.

The early walk is mainly on flat level ground, with one section that has a pebbled section and is suitable for both pushchairs and wheelchair users.

The later walks take a different route through the woods where there is a potential for soft muddy ground and a steep uphill bank and stairs, which may be dangerous for pushchairs (please note this walk is not suitable for under 11's) and not recommended for wheelchairs or audience members with mobility issues.
