What to do for Halloween in Cornwall?

Things are getting spooky for Halloween in Cornwall, with ghost, ghouls and pumpkins popping up everywhere!

If you’re looking for ideas for places to go on Halloween in Cornwall we’ve got you covered. We’ve broken down some of our favourite Halloween activities the whole family can get involved in – all of which are only a short distance from our holiday park near Newquay.



First up is Eden project’s ‘Halloweden’! The perfect Halloween event for all ages, with visits from Roald Dahl’s most terrifying villains. Join in a witch spotting session, venture into the BFG’s cave or if you’re truly brave enough, enter Mr and Mrs Twits’ house where there are more tricks than treats. This is an eight-day event you won’t want to miss, with Halloween discos and their ice rink running throughout.

After Dark:

If you’re wanting something for older ages Bodmin Jail is the place to be this Halloween. Enjoy a three-course meal while getting to know the others who have braved to be locked in on Halloween night! You will be guided by an experienced medium through Bodmin jail, uncovering the dark mysteries that are hidden there and you won’t see the light of day until 5am the next morning!


Pirate Fright Night:

The pirates quest adventure in Newquay brings you the thrill of Halloween with intense storytelling! Wander through this forty-five-minute full immersive scare experience, with true Cornish pirates waiting for you at every turn. Fancy dress is encouraged, so get your costume on and get ready for a frightening night!



Looking for something more light-hearted? Trevornick’s very own Octobonanza is perfect for the whole family. Get excited for a week of Halloween madness, including UV costume making, pumpkin carving and themed evening entertainment every night
