Edinburgh’s Spooktacular Halloween.

Happy Halloween - Edinburgh Spooktacular Halloween

With its long and bloody history, Edinburgh’s a spooky place to be at Halloween – although arguably it’s a spooky city all year round with its dungeons, tales of hauntings at the ancient Castle, and a plethora of places scary enough to chill you to the bone.
This Halloween, there’s lots to do if you’re looking to get out and about to soak up the spooky atmosphere. Even the kids will love a good scare!

Visit Scotland has a whole host of Halloween events, but here are some of our spooky Edinburgh Halloween highlights:

Fire Festival Fun

Edinburgh’s famous Samhuinn (pronounced sow-een) Fire Festival celebrates the Celtic New Year, marking the end of summer and welcoming the winter days. This year’s Festival takes place on Halloween night – Wednesday 31st October (7pm to 11pm) with a blazing torchlight performance including wild drumming, acrobatics, fire-dancing, intricate costumes and battles between the otherworldly forces of summer and winter. With Calton Hill as the venue, it’s sure to be a spooktacular Halloween night for the whole family.

Edinburgh Horror Festival

This multi-art-form event – running over the weekend before Halloween each year in Edinburgh – incorporates theatre, comedy, magic, spoken word, movies, games, improv, workshops, interactive events and much more.

There’s been a murder!

How about a good old-fashioned murder mystery, set in16th century tower house Lauriston Castle? ‘A Reunion with Death’ is the latest in Edinburgh Living History’s annual murder mysteries and shouldn’t be missed.

Where did you get that hat?

Get creative with Halloween outfits by scouring all those charity shops for inspo. Disco zombie anyone? Easy to do with a seventies suit, a white shirt, some fake blood and a bit of imagination! Fortunately for those of us who prefer an off the peg solution, Edinburgh has several great fancy dress shops to guarantee you don’t have to look too far for your Spiderman suit!

Staying in is the new going out

If staying in is your thing this Halloween, check out the new Netflix series – The Haunting of Hill House – based on the 1959 book by Shirley Jackson. It’s definitely not for the faint hearted though, and it’s very much suitable for adults only. You have been warned!

Planning ahead

Keen to avoid Halloween altogether? Check out our range of flexible, affordable self-storage options and plan ahead with a pre-Christmas declutter. Many families choose to use our self-storage at Jenner’s Depository to store those household items that are needed less often. Our self-storage units can relieve the strain of making room in the home for family and friends visits over the festive season.
Whatever you decide to do, don’t have nightmares, and have a great Halloween!
