It’s Friday – so it’s time for another Top 5… and the weather is letting us know it is most definitely October, so here’s our top 5 Halloween activities along the Yorkshire Coast.
There are various schools of thought when it comes to Halloween – there’s the celebration of light (e.g. pumpkin making) or there’s the scare yourself silly theory. We think we’ve got both options covered here with something for everyone to look forward to.
Harry’s Halloween Maze
Harry’s Diner, Muston Garage, Scarborough Rd, Muston, Filey YO14 0EH.
This is definitely one for the ‘scare yourself silly’ brigade! Harry’s Diner is a cool American style diner on the main Scarborough Road in Muston. They have really thrown themselves into the Halloween season with a spooky maze in their outdoor space at the rear of the diner. You also get 20% discount in the diner to calm your nerves before or after your maze experience.
Dates: 22-31 October, 4-8pm
