Halloween is right around the corner, and if you’ve not yet got plans – don’t worry! London is bursting with a variety of events to suit all ages and degrees of scare. Halloween 2017 is set to be the biggest one yet, and there’s so much to do all through October and November across the city.
Here are just a few of our favourites:
- Dance the night away at Sky Garden’s Halloween in the Sky – promising to be the most spooktacular event of the season (Friday 27th October)
- The Harry Potter set at Warner Bros. Studios is getting a special spooky makeover, and you can delve into the Dark Arts world on the limited edition tour (1 Oct-12 Nov).
- After a night of mystery at the museum? Museums at Night is holding a number of Halloween-themed activities including 19th-century mummy-unwrapping parties and solving a murder mystery with the help of forensic experts at the Natural History Museum (30 Oct).
- The London Dungeons are selling tickets to a ride on the Death Express – the very trainline used to carry dead bodies out of London #FullScreamAhead (1 Oct-5 Nov).
- Carnaby is stepping into its spooky shoes with a host of Halloween workshops and ghostly installations, tarot reading and plenty of live music and free drinks in pop-up The Quarter of Curiosity Shop (17-31 Oct).
- The Hampton Court Palace is having a scary movie night, with showings of The Silence of the Lambs, Beetlejuice, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to choose from. Bring your pumpkin popcorn (30 Oct-1 Nov).
- Fancy getting to know the streets and history of London a little better? There’s always the Ghost Bus tours to hop on, or Tales of a Plague guided city walks, and a Jack the Ripper Ghost Walk where you get to retrace his creepy footsteps.
- And if you fancy heading out of town, there’s always Thorpe Park’s infamous Fright Nights with scare mazes, and the journey from hell with Derren Brown’s Ghost Train (29 Sep-31 Oct).
Whatever you get up to this Halloween, we hope you have a night-mare to remember!
