Pumpkin fields in Lancashire – ticket prices, parking spaces, opening times



It’s that time of year to think about visiting a pumpkin patch that’s ready for Halloween.

You might think there’s plenty of time left, but there’s always one who leaves it late on October 30th only to find that the supermarkets are either pumpkin-free or have orange-sized pumpkins in store.

Wherever you are in Lancashire there should be a place nearby where the giant winter squash is just waiting to be carved by you.

And we’ve put together all the important information you need to know when planning your visit, from opening times to parking.

If we missed your favorite, let us know in the comments and we’ll add it …
