Halloween Half Term is the time for all apprentice witches and wizards to put their skills to the test to become a fully-fledged expert in magic. Ballimore the wizard has been practicing his spells, but has unfortunately turned his fellow wizard, Lumos, into a guinea pig! Bring your family to our trail and help Ballimore by completing all the challenges in your spell book and discovering the magic word to turn Lumos back into a boy!
On selected days, see Magica de Spell, the resident witch, in her lair and say the magic word to receive a prize. Put on your cloaks, grab your broomsticks, wave your wands and fly across to the ‘Borde Hill Academy of Witches of Wizards’. £3 per trail plus admission, to include a spellbinding prize (FREE to Friends).
If young witches and wizards are still bursting with energy, then the Adventure Playground is open with climbing frames, swings and a zip wire.
After all the excitement tired souls can revive their spirits at the Gardeners’ Retreat Café serving tasty snacks and warming drinks.
Visitors are also welcome to wander and enjoy the stunning hues of autumn with cornus, acers, liquidambar trees and deciduous azaleas, as well as wonderful views across the parkland featuring native and exotic trees.
All Garden entry and trails must be pre-booked in advance at www.bordehill.co.uk/
