Halloween in London

By Viator, October 2014

4 5 Reviews | Add your review

With its long and gory history of treason, beheadings and murders, haunted London makes the perfect backdrop to Halloween celebrations and few European cities put as much effort into the spookiest night of the year. As October 31st rounds the corner, the British capital will be embracing its dark side, with the streets of central London aglow with the eerie flicker of Jack O’Lanterns, shop windows hung with cobwebs and skeletons, and bars and restaurants serving up gruesome-sounding theme menus in honor of All Hallows Eve. 

While Londoners will be donning fake-blood smeared costumes and dancing the night away, or indulging in scary movie marathons hosted by the London Horror Film Festival, family-friendly attractions like the London Zoo, the Tower of London, the London Bridge Experience and the London Eye will be hosting an array of spine-tingling special events for all ages. Or why not pay a visit to the spooktastic London Dungeons, where special Halloween shows bring together the city’s most notorious characters like Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper, Guy Fawkes and Henry VIII.

Alternatively, step back in time on a ghost walk around London’s creepiest locations and duck through the alleyways where notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper once lurked or dare yourself not to scream as you explore the haunted gravestones of Highgate Cemetery and the infamous Bleeding Heart Yard. Top it off with a drink at one of London’s most haunted pubs like the poltergeist–ridden The Grenadier in Mayfair or the gothic style The London Stone on Cannon Street.
