Witching hour is fast approaching and fiendish friends are lurking in the shadows of Myddelton House Gardens in Enfield this Halloween.

Once the home of renowned Victorian gardener and horticulturist E.A. Bowles, the sweeping gardens will play host to Gussie the ghost and his ghoulish gardener friends who will be haunting the grounds every evening between Tuesday, October 29, and Thursday, October 31.

Brave children up for the challenge of exploring the spooky pathways, flower beds and vegetable patches will be given a mysterious map to follow. Once they complete their puzzle-solving mission without being caught by a creepy creature, they will get to claim a goody-bag bursting with treats.

Families can also listen to some scary storytelling and tuck into a selection of devilishly good drinks and gruesome goodies.

Myddelton House Gardens, Bulls Cross, Enfield, Tuesday, October 29, to Thursday, October 31, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm. Details: visitleevalley.org.uk
