Nicola Barker, the fort general manager, says: “Halloween is the end of the main 2021 visitor season and we love to make it really special. Visitors and volunteers who make an effort to come as a witch, warlock, ghost, mummy or anything else spooky adds to the atmosphere and makes each day so much more fun.”

Landguard Fort, the site of the last opposed invasion of England in 1667, opens at 10am with last entry at 2.30pm.
