Trying to keep the Halloween ‘spirit’ alive this year is pretty challenging, but it’s not all doom and gloom. We’ve been busy scouring the county to find the best Halloween and autumnal themed activities for you and your family to enjoy whilst staying safe. Here are our top picks.

 

Rock House Trail at Kinver Edge

This 4 mile walk boasts breathtaking views of both Staffordshire and Worcestershire. The gentle and accessible trail incorporates two different rock house complexes that visitors can explore. It is the perfect place to tell spooky ghost stories about the weathered carvings in the red sandstone to really set that Halloween mood!

Tittesworth Water Circular Walk

Visitors to Tittesworth Water can enjoy a circular walk around the Tittesworth reservoir and experience the beautiful changing autumnal landscape. The walk also takes visitors past their conservation area which is ideal for bird spotting. The walk is around 4.5 miles long, and afterwards, you can reward yourself by enjoying a bite to eat at The Waterview restaurant, or head over to The Lazy Trout pub which is just a stones throw away.
