    Halloween Half Term Fun at Walby (17 - 31 OCT)

    Bibbity, bobbity, BOO! Halloween fun is back this October at Walby Farm Park. We can’t wait for you to join us for stacks of spooooky and fang-tastic activities, a brand NEW show, and a FREE pumpkin for every child!

    All the extra Halloween fun – and all the usual daily farm activities – is included in entry. Book online in advance to save!


    NEW INTERACTIVE SHOW!

    There are supernatural shenanigans at Walby Farm Park this October!

    Camilla Collywobble and Bertha Bumfuzzle are witches on a mission – to make sure that Halloween is seriously spooky! Unfortunately Camilla gets frightened of almost everything and Bertha is at the end of her tether!

    Can your children (and a touch of Halloween magic) help?

    A fun, interactive show with a spell of sibling rivalry from our witchy sisters. A freaky treat for all the family!

    N.B. Our NEW show runs from 19 – 27 October only.


    CALLING ALL PRE-SCHOOLERS!

    Rather bring your little one out of the holiday period? We’ve included TWO DAYS of Pumpkin Picking especially for pre-schoolers! Visit us on Thurs 17 and Fri 18 October for toddler fun!

    We are a farm visitor attraction situated within the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall therefore: 1. A concrete surface leads from the disabled parking to the entrance, the walkway from the main Car Park is gravel. 2. Nature Trail is accessible with a children's buggy. 3. Some attractions are located in grassy paddocks with no concrete walkways, after a prolonged period of wet weather they may be less accessible. 4. Concessions are available for those aged 65 years and over only.
