From trick-or-treat tours to ghoulish ghost hunts, York offers a wide range of Halloween shenanigans to get your fangs into.

There is something for all ages. Youngsters will enjoy story times, tours and craft sessions, while those a little older might be brave enough to enter the haunted houses at Hell’s Domain or Hallowscream.

And if you’re in the mood for a spookily good party, with food, drink and fun, there are a few events that might be just up your dark and mysterious alley.
