Halloween is just over a month away and you’ll likely be trying to get your plans sorted in advance.
From trick or treating, to horror film nights, to terrifying events, there are so many different ways you can enjoy the spookiest night of the year. But if you’re looking to spend it out and about, here are a few events around Kent that will have you trembling at the knees!
Broadditch Farm Shop, New Barn Road, Southfleet, DA13 9PU
Date: Throughout October
Scary mazes are one of the most popular forms of Halloween events, and for good reason, they’re terrifying. At Broadwitch Hauntfest you’ll encounter 5 terrifying mazes, including a corn maze (a horror movie classic).
We all scream at the TV when watching horror films, shouting at the victims when they take a wrong turn. Broadwitch Hauntfest gives you the perfect opportunity to play the victim of cannibals, savages and murderous predators (actors).
Crabble Corn Mill
Lower Road, River, Dover , CT17 0UY
Date: Saturday 29th October 9pm – 10pm
There aren’t many settings that are scarier than an old mill, so you’re in for a night of fear at Crabble Corn Mill.
This event is so scary that it’s only for those over 18 years old. You’ll take a tour of the mill, with a few added surprises thrown in. There’ll be live actors, and new surprises with each level.
If you were looking for a more family friendly Halloween event though, they also have a tour that’s suitable for children from aged 6 and above. This is an early evening do though, rather than a late night scare.
Scarefest Evenings At Groombridge Place
Groombridge Hill, Groombridge, Tunbridge Wells TN3 9QG
Date: 27th-29th October 6pm – 11pm
You’ll be pleased to hear that you can spend the night at one of Kent’s most popular places, but under a much spookier atmosphere.
If you head to Groombridge Place this Halloween, you’re in for a night of terrifying myths and stories, whilst heading deep into the forest. There’s also drinks and a BBQ to help calm your nerves!
49-51 Marine Terrace, Margate CT9 1XJ
Date: 20th-31st October
People travel from all over the country to see Margate’s Dreamland, but this Halloween the amusement park is being transformed into Screamland.

There’s also a DJ and live music throughout the evening, so you can dance away your fears. And if you work up an appetite, there’s food and drink available throughout the park.
