October Half Term Fun at Heights of Abraham

23 October, 2021 - 31 October, 2021

Enchanted Grotto, Scarecrow displays, tasty treats, ghost stories and 13 cats I-Spy trail this October half term at the Heights of Abraham.

As well as our our usual exhibitions, adventure playgrounds and facilities (check out our review of the Heights of Abraham), the FRIGHTS of Abraham returns to Masson Hill this October half term with an enchanted witch’s grotto, (small additional admission charge) colourful scarecrow displays, tasty Halloween treats in the cafe and a treasure hunt to find 13 magical black cats for younger guests.

Belinda’s Enchanted Grotto Adventure
Grotto tours will take place between 12.00 noon and 3.00pm only
Additional charge for visit and gift per child £4

Are you ready for an adventure? Belinda Broomsticks has had a really bad day, she’s lost 13 black cats, and worse than that, the cavern trolls have stolen her magic cauldron and hidden it deep in the caves under the Heights of Abraham. What she really needs is an army of magical children to join her on a hunt inside the caverns to locate her enchanted cauldron – and if it’s found there will be magical little gifts for every child on the tour! Each child will be given their own guiding light and shown how to use it before entering the cavern – and then it’s off we go!

Mums and dads are welcome to join the adventure into the caverns, and because they’re all grown up they don’t need a ticket. However, if your child would like to join the treasure hunt and secure a gift from the magic cauldron – they’ll need a special GROTTO TICKET. But hurry because there are only 300 tickets available for each day, and once they’ve gone, not even Belinda’s magical charms will get you through the door.


Find out what’s on for kids this October half term.
