Portsmouth is thought to be the most haunted place in Hampshire making it perfect location to have fun this Halloween. This half term, Hovertravel are not only giving you amazing savings they are also giving you fantastic ideas in their online Hoverhaunts guide for scary activities so that you too can explore the ghosts, spirits, poltergeists and apparitions for yourself.
Why not head over for the Ghost Investigation at Fort Widley on 31 October, where you can take part in paranormal experiments and see demonstrations of real ghost hunting equipment whilst exploring the remarkable hill fort’s tunnels that burrow deep within the chalk hills of Portsdown.
Even the iconic ships of the Portsmouth Historical Dockyard are getting spooky this half term. On 29 October HMS Victory will be hosting Vile Victory, a special Halloween drop in session to explore the gruesome aspects of the ships history. HMS Warrior 1860 is hosting a family pumpkin trail, interactive ghost stories, and creepy crafty days. These events are all free with a valid ticket so it’s even better to take the whole family down.
Halloween isn’t just for the kids though. On 31 October The Queens Hotel overlooking beautiful Southsea Common and the Solent will be holding a Halloween Ball where you can enjoy a three course dinner, champagne reception and entertainment. With Hovertravel’s late services you can ensure that you enjoy all of the ghoulish fun after dark.
And what better finale to the half term week than a trip to see some of the best fireworks on the South Coast? To experience the spectacular fireworks display at Gunwharf Quays on 28 October, Hovertravel is offering return travel, drinks and buffet at the Slug and Lettuce pub, a private viewing platform and a chartered hovercraft to pick you up direct from Gunwharf Marina so that you can enjoy the event in VIP style.
