The Isle of Wight is rumoured to be the most haunted island in Britain and there are several Halloween-themed activities planned. From the witches at Carisbrooke Castle to the Frights & Sprites at Blackgang Chine and from the free wolf mask at the Newport Roman Villa to the immersive light shows at Robin Hill, there are plenty of autumn activities available.
Across the Solent, Portsmouth offers ghost hunting, haunted houses and a scary Halloween tour of an old fort. From the ghosts rumoured to haunt the Naval Base to the Froddington Witch often heard whistling in Fratton and from the spirit taking the applause at the New Theatre Royal to the drummer boy who is said to still run around Fort Widley, there is something to scare everyone.
