Best Halloween Activities To Enjoy This Year

It's finally spooky season - but what are the best ways to enjoy the festivities this year?

We have compiled a list of Best Halloween Activities to enjoy for the kids and for the adults.

1. Pumpkin Patch / Picking

Is it really Autumn if you haven't gone pumpkin picking?

Pick your own pumpkin at your local Pumpkin Farm! This is an activity that can be enjoyed with the whole family, your group of friends, as a couple or even solo - whatever tickles your fancy.

Some Pumpkin Farms have lots of activities for the kids, including carriage rides, bouncy castles, face painting and much more!

You can also enjoy the on-site Farm Shop and browse through their Autumn / Halloween gift selections.

Pumpkin Farms enable the perfect photo opp - so make sure you're getting plenty of photos whilst you're visiting!

Grab an old sheet, either cut two holes for eyes or grab a pair of sunglasses and voila - you have the perfect DIY ghost costume.

But don't stop there. Grab your best mate and have a Ghost Photoshoot together because ... why not?

3. Plan a Halloween Movie Marathon
