Scaresville - The Haunted Village




What is Scaresville?

Scaresville is a haunted village which mysteriously appears in the grounds of Kentwell Hall in Suffolk every autumn. It is one of Britain's Top Scare Attractions, and previous winner of a prestigious Screamie Award.

10th Anniversary Renewal

Yes, it's 10 years since the very first Scaresville. Old favourite scares may return and there will be some devilish new ones.

Visit Scaresville at your peril!  

You'll enjoy (??!) up to an hour and a half of pure adrenaline as you journey through dark rooms, forests and open farmland.  There is no let up; no 'safe' zones in which to recover; no trailer-rides.  By the time you leave, you will be exhausted from screaming and laughing so much. Find out more.

Visit as a Group

Scaresville operates by scaring groups, not individuals. That is why each group is required to stay together at all times. Groups of no more than 12 follow a set route round. It works best if a group is made up of friends or colleagues. Then you can enjoy seeing others scared as much as they may enjoy seeing you scared!  

You can book a group ticket for between 8 and 12 people at discounted rates.  If you book for fewer than 8, you will be joined by others on the night to form your ScareZone group. 

  • Scaresville takes place after dark in almost (but not quite) complete darkness.

  • It is not for those who are squeamish, pregnant, claustrophobic, frail or faint-hearted. 

  • Strobe lights, confined spaces and loud noises will be used during the route.
  • It's called 'ScaresVille' for a reason...

You have been warned!   Do you dare?

Scaresville is NOT suitable for under 14s.

Scaresville is not designed for, or intended for, children.

Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult (over 21 years of age)
