Horror at Hinchingbrooke House is based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire on the site of a building that was built around an 11th-century Benedictine nunnery. 

This setting is great for a scare attraction that uses the grounds of the property to great effect.

You start your journey in the courtyard where there are a few food trucks. We arrived quite early so ended up being at the front of the first group.

The first few scenes take place within the house itself with winding pathways built in the grand rooms of the building. There are a few good scares in this bit with some actors well hidden coming as if from nowhere. 

The trail continues through many scenes for around 45 minutes to an hour depending on how fast your group move. While it would be impossible to remember the order of everything I’ll discuss a few standout features.

Near the beginning of the trail you enter a school. There were actors hiding around many corners of the building producing some solid scares throughout the group. There was some good use of music in this section which I particularly liked.

The next standout section incorporated classic toys and games with a horrific Mr Frosty and a brilliant Chucky themed end scene. This really got me jumping throughout.

Towards the end of the attraction you entered a sectioned based around The Purge this has some fun interaction and solid scares.

Final thoughts

This is a fun attraction with scares around every corner. The use of the different buildings as well as constructed scenes outside works really well.

While it’s not the most heavily themed attraction this is well and truly made up for with the enthusiasm of the actors who really work hard to land a scare. The attraction used a lot of distraction techniques which got us so many times. 

Horror at Hinchingbrooke House is a fun attraction that is definitely worth checking out. If you want to visit they are running until the 27th of October.
