Halloween ghost train 

Fundraising event to help us maintain and develop the gardens

Ride Exbury's haunted ghost train this October half term for some frightfully entertaining family fun! Spooky characters will captivate children and adults alike in a creepily comedic performance. Starting at Exbury Central Station, our un-dead conductors will guide passengers on a grisly journey through Exbury's wearisome woodland, festooned with gruesome decorations. Ghoulish characters will be lurking within the copse, and you might even hear some ghastly singing and see some dreadful dancing along the way, before entering our haunted tunnel!

Exbury's Halloween Ghost Train and characters may be a little too scary for some children so parental discretion is advised before booking.


Departing from Exbury Central Station.

Exbury Gardens' Halloween Ghost Train will run between Monday 25th - Sunday 31st October 2021.

Book your visit

‘We recently had some friends from London to visit and were looking for something to entertain our young children for the day. We decided to give Exbury Gardens a try and I thought it was wonderful. We had Sunday lunch in the restaurant and the food was far superior to other local attractions so compliments to the chef. Walking through the gardens was beautiful with lots of little pathways to explore. I have lived in the Romsey area for many years and always thought Exbury was a little out of the way but it only took me 20 minutes from the motorway. We will definitely be a regular visitor from now on.’
