Halloween Hauntings at Temple Newsam

Manning Stainton

We’ve saved the spookiest half-term event till last with the Grade I listed Temple Newsam being host to Halloween Hauntings this October half-term. Temple Newsam is one of the finest historic houses in Leeds, complete with over 40 rooms and over 1,500 acres of woodland, parkland and gardens, this house really is impressive. Take in the history of the building as you wander through the magnificently designed halls and grounds and enjoy the stunning architecture on offer. Also within the estate is Home Farm which is one of the only Rare Breeds Survival Trust approved farms in the UK, so whilst you’re there be sure to check out some of the rare breeds they have at the farm to learn more about them and the conservation effort at Temple Newsam.

This Halloween be prepared to be scared as you stroll through the spooky corridors, hearing terrifying tales of the estate and the ghosts and ghouls who still creep around in the dead of night. Get in the spirit and get the family dressed up in their scariest outfits, as you make your way through the estate be sure to keep an eye out for the Blue Lady!
