15 + Halloween Events for Families in Yorkshire 2021

We are nearing two of my sons favourite times of the year – Halloween and Christmas.

I will update as and when I hear about them. Here are some great Yorkshire Halloween events already confirmed.

Listed alphabetically.

If you are an attraction and would like a bigger feature or regular/one-off promotion on Facebook please get in touch suzy@yorkshiretodowithkids.co.uk. I have a large Yorkshire based following.

Please keep up-to-date with government guidance before booking or visiting. I am unsure of the following attractions policies on cancellations of events. Please check with them in advance. It may also be an idea to check with the attraction that everything is as advertised the day before you visit and please note many of the attractions below will still be requiring you to prebook in advance.
