No Halloween bucket-list is complete without mentioning Edinburgh. From Edinburgh Castle to the infamous dungeons, it’s the perfect spot for a scary staycation.

Fly directly to Edinburgh with Aer Lingus.


From torch-lit tours around the UK’s most haunted site, Aston Hall, to family-friendly ghostly tales, there’s something for everyone in Birmingham this Halloween.

The grown-up ghouls will enjoy Birmingham’s fancy dress club nights, complete with dancing, themed drinks, live music, and entertainers.

For some bonus screams, why not take a trip to Alton Towers’ 'Scarefest', located just over an hour from Birmingham Airport.
