Sussex National Trust properties are promising plenty of half-term and Halloween fun.
Spokeswoman Hannah Elliott said: “There will be autumnal adventures and Halloween happenings in Sussex this half-term with the National Trust.
“Autumn is the perfect time to get outside and create unforgettable moments this October half-term. With all kinds of family-friendly and Halloween events on offer, the kids won’t get bored.
“It’s also the perfect time to have a go at some activities. You could play conkers, explore inside a tree or go on a nature walk at night.
“Every visit to a National Trust property this autumn helps look after special places forever, for everyone.
“Here are our top half-term events to tick off this autumn across Sussex:
“Petworth House and Park, Halloween trail and crafts. 20 – 28 Oct. Visit Petworth this October half term and take part in some spine tingling activities.
