The Eastnor Halloween Trail takes place around the castle grounds which are hilly and laid to gravel in places. It may be difficult for wheelchairs and pushchairs to reach some of the clues, particularly if the ground is wet. The Halloween Trail clues will be available to see via our website if there are any that you can’t get to; please use the link provided on your confirmation email to request the clue information.
