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.
