Pick your perfect pumpkin from our pop-up pumpkin patch in the orchard. There will be opportunities for photos, as well as wheelbarrows for little ones to use.

We have a limited number of pumpkins, so we recommend checking our social media pages for availability before you visit. The pumpkin patch will open from Saturday 22 October, until we run out of pumpkins.

As well as the pumpkin patch, you can also take part in the other magical activities taking place in the museum and gardens, including Twisted Fairy TalesMeet the Owls and Spooky Crafts.


The museum will be open, a ticket to the museum will be required in order to access the pumpkin patch.
