Christmas Comes Early with Scrooge’s Spooky Town Trail

Go on a thrilling journey with the whole family this October Half Term with Scrooge’s Spooky Town Trail. The ghosts from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol have gathered in Taunton to share their wisdom and spark a transformation in the heart of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge. Can you help to decode their message?

Each ghost is hiding in a shop window around Taunton. Follow the trail and retrieve a word from each to uncover their secret message.


You can find our spectral friends at the following locations:

1) Taunton Visitor Centre (TA1 1JD)
2) Brendon Books (TA1 4ER)
3) Mr Miles Tea Room (TA1 3PG)
4) Waterstones (TA1 3LU)
5) Rocket & Bird (TA1 1JR)
6) Alpha Clothing (TA1 1JR)
7) Taunton Brewhouse (TA1 1JL)

Ready to embark on this chilling activity? Follow the trail in chronological order for a true Dickensian experience, or shuffle the locations for an added challenge! You can download a digital copy of the trail map here, or pick up a physical copy from our Box Office.
