The spookiest spots in the island break.

1. Pick a pumpkin. - Well it would not be Halloween without a pumpkin! One of Jersey’s top spots for picking up a pumpkin is Manor Farm in St. Ouen’s. They’ve got crates full of this spookiest of fruits. So you can pick the perfect one to carve out your own jack-o'-lantern. 

PICK ONE HERE

 

2. Go on a Halloween castle tour - it gets scary after dark. - Head to Mont Orgueil this October under the shadow of night, for candlelit spooky tours of the magnificent castle, the perfect setting for a frightfully good time.

3. Witches’ Rock – a meeting place for magical creatures… - On the south east of the island there is a rock called Rocqueberg… legend has it that witches used to gather here, and if the passing fisherman didn’t throw every thirteenth fish from their catch back, they would raise a great storm!  

MEET THE MAGIC

 

4. A spooky stroll to Devil's Hole. - A dramatic name for an impressive sight. Devil's Hole is a natural crater in the cliff and plunges 200ft down to the sea below. Its name is said to come from the shipwreck of a French boat. Its figurehead was found in the hole and was made into a wooden devil – a replica of which can be found on the winding path down to the hole, creating an eerie vibe.

5. Toads and things that go boo! - Associated with witches’ spells, cauldrons and all things magical, why not take a walk-through Waterworks Valley this Halloween and see the biggest of all toad residents in Jersey. Look out for spiky Butcher’s Broom, toad spawn and navelwort leaves along the way!  

FOLLOW THE TOAD

 

6. Trick or treat and all things sweet… - If heading out is not for you this Halloween… then why not pop into Jersey’s markets and prepare for a Spooktacular night in? Perhaps pick up a scarily sweet treat from one of the bakery stalls, or some fresh autumn veg to whip up an autumnal cauldron of comforting food.
