Vampire Bat Hunt Self Guide Trail

Thorndon Country Park

Back To Events two vampire bats flying against a moon backdrop

Get in the mood for Halloween on this fun, family friendly vampire bat spotting walk through the park.

Buy your trail guidebook for £3 from the Pavillion Cafe, and then set off on a self-guided Halloween adventure through the park. Search out our sneaky hanging bat trail markers, collect the clues written on the back and complete your trail booklet ready to collect a special well done gift back at the Pavillion Café at completion.

No need to book; just bring along family, friends and your best bat spotting eyes. Please dress for a potentially chilly autumn day and wear comfortable and waterproof footwear.

There is a small pay and display car parking charge which goes back into maintaining the park. Well behaved dogs are welcome to come along.
