Halloween ghost train

Halloween 2019

Halloween ghost train

Our creepy characters have risen from their coffins to make sure this year's ghost train is as spooktacular as 2018! 

Back due to popular demand, vampire Batty and skeleton Boney will be guiding guests through the gardens on our ghoulish ghost train. They'll be telling jokes along the way and entertaining visitors with their panto-esc comedy. Families will encounter werewolves, witches, zombie brides, clowns and all manner of gruesome characters on their journey!

And if that isn't enough, we'll also be giving a prize away to the child with the best Halloween costume at the end of each train ride.

Our ghost train and characters may be a little too scary for some children so parental discretion is advised before booking.


All ghost train rides are approximately 30-45 minutes long.







Please meet at Exbury Central Station around 15 minutes before your booked train is due to depart. This will hopefully ensure that your party can sit together and the train can depart on time.

‘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.’
