Sign up for our Free Virtual Halloween Discovery Week: 26th - 30th October

Explore the spookier side of the Royal Parks with a week of free virtual interactive activities led by our Learning, Mission Invertebrate and Brompton teams.

Sign up below to join the hair-raising fun!

There will be something for everyone in the family, from underground bug hunts and creepy crawly storytelling to live themed craft-alongs. For those who do not scare easily, we will have virtual walking tours and live expert discussions on creepy histories; from rituals and symbolism in Victorian mourning in Brompton Cemetery to our Victorian Pet Cemetery, the first public Pet Cemetery in Britain, where over 1,000 pets have been buried.

Children can create and craft with The Royal Parks

We’re bringing an exciting programme of Halloween activities directly to you at home. All activities will be in the form of videos, live recordings and downloadable pdfs. We will provide more information before hand on what materials you will need for that particular activity.
