The Halloween Grotto (21st - 31st October)

Limited availability, please book your grotto tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment.
The Halloween Grotto returns for its third year, and this time it’s spookier than ever before! Join Belinda Broomsticks the world-famous witch, and widely renowned monster hunter from the 21st to 31st October. Young adventurers are invited to help Belinda on the ultimate quest to collect ingredients for her latest potion, by capturing… a troll! Head deep into the troll’s creepy cavern lair and see what mischief awaits…

The ‘Monster Mission’ Halloween Grotto is suitable for children aged 3-10 and includes a gift for every child. The twenty-minute experience is an additional cost of £4.50 and includes a theatrical performance inside the Rutland Cavern at the Heights of Abraham, with lighting, sound, and special effects. Tickets for the Halloween Grotto are limited, and it is advised to book in advance as previous grottos have sold out!
