Half-term holiday ideas reaching a dead end? October is the perfect time to visit East Devon and Dorset with both half-term and Halloween taking place. In fact, it’s scary just how many great events are taking place in East Devon and Dorset this Halloween! Here are some devilishly good things to see and do across east Devon and west Dorset on Halloween (October 31st) and the week leading up to it:

Terrifying Trams in Seaton
A fan of ghost trains? Well, Seaton Tramway will be offer spooky and spectacular rides from Seaton to Colyton between 26th & 31st October on their Train of Terror. Alongside plenty of thrills and frights along the journey, you will find plenty of activities to keep kids of all ages entertained (and scared!). Rides take place every 30 minutes between 10.30am to 2pm, with Halloween games and even revolting refreshments available at the stations. Advance booking essential! More info here

Scary nights and eerie days at Escot
Escot, already one of Devon’s top tourist attractions, is once again hosting two fabulous “Fright Nights” on the 30th and 31st. The events run between 5.30 and 8.30pm and offer plenty of spooky games and fun for children to enjoy, from storytelling to grisly lucky dips and fancy dress contests.
Places are limited so be sure to book in advance. More details here.

A Scarefest in Seaton
Seaton will once again be hosting its own Halloween party in the Gateway in Seaton and is open to children up to the age of 12. This is the ideal Halloween party event for the hardest to please boys and ghoulish girls due to the sheer amount of things to do, including a buffet, disco and haunted bouncy castle.
Packed full of party games and snacks, the children’s Halloween party is sure to deliver both tricks and treats galore. What more could you want? More info here.
