Back October 2019. Gates open at 6.30pm and our Horror Mazes open at 7.00pm. We close at 11.00pm but last entry to the farm is 9.00pm.
Getting To Us
Parking is free. We’re easily accessible via the A5 from Milton Keynes or M1 from Luton & Dunstable. Follow the AA signs from J11A on the M1 to ‘The Howl at Mead Open Farm’. If map reading isn’t your thing, use Sat Nav postcode LU7 9JH.
Taxi drop off is available outside the entrance at The Howl. Just tell the driver to take you to Mead Open Farm, Leighton Buzzard LU7 9JH.
Regular trains run from Milton Keynes, Luton, Dunstable, Hemel & Aylesbury to Leighton Buzzard station. Once you arrive at Leighton Buzzard station, simply catch a Taxi to Mead Open Farm.
We don’t recommend going in The Horror Mazes if you’re pregnant as all of our attractions feature flashing lights, strobes and special effects. There is also a high level of smoke effects in some of the attractions. If you have any concerns or questions we always recommend speaking to your doctor.
Know Before You Go
Outside take as many photos as you’d like with monsters, creatures and other weird entities and feel free to grab a snack and drink. While inside the haunts, no food, drinks, bottles, recording devices, flash photography or flashlights are allowed. Besides, what you see inside will put you off your food and you wouldn’t want an embarrassing photo with half a hog-roast down your chin.
No masks or hand held items are allowed inside. If you come in costume please leave your mask and accessories in your car. The mask might hide the terror on your face, but it won’t muffle the screams!
Mistreating any of our creatures in or outside of the haunts will result in you being sent home. A creature is for life, not just for Halloween.
We are on a farm. Wearing heels or flip flops is discouraged as they are the shoes we find the most in our lost and found. (Some of them still have feet!) We recommend wearing sturdy shoes when you visit us.
Buy your tickets online, it’s cheaper! Don’t be disappointed because you didn’t plan beforehand and we’re all sold out! Our monsters are in demand!
When to Visit
If you come on an off peak night (typically a weekday night) expect there to be space in between you and the group in front of you (unless of course the group in front of you walks slower than a hoard of zombies). Significantly less people attend on weekdays, therefore, we are able to offer a much better pace/spacing for travelling through the haunts. This changes on weekday nights the closer we get to Halloween.
If you come on a peak night or on one of the busiest nights of the year expect an action packed and terrifying experience with an energy like no other. But also expect there to be little to no spacing between you and the group in front of you. There are special direction and adjustments made to accommodate larger numbers of patrons on weekends and busier nights.
If it’s important for you to have a more “alone” feeling at the haunted house, come on a weekday. If you enjoy the energy and excitement that is fuelled by more people, attend on a weekend. Either way, we are confident that you will enjoy your experience! Well, perhaps enjoy is too cheerful a word… You will certainly have a terrifyingly good night!
