Halloween Party

The most horrifying and hedonistic Halloween party celebrations take plenty of forward planning, so get some inspiration from freaky fancy dress shops feature, learn about the most haunted places in London to visit and get some movies lined up from our list of the 100 best horror films.

With its gloomy dungeons, haunted tower and bloodthirsty history, where better to spend Halloween than in London?

There are loads of Halloween events in London on and around 31 October. From terrifying witches to spooky club nights, the capital is home to Halloween events for all ages and tastes.

This Halloween, the The London Eye has The Witch Academy, a magical school of mysticism and sorcery for children and their families. Classes will run throughout the October half-term break and youngsters will need to work together to find the two missing witches to graduate at The Witch Academy and enjoy a bespoke Halloween Storytelling experience on the London Eye.

Visitors can also take a spook-tacular cruise along the River Thames on the London Eye River Cruise where you can enjoy a chilling cocktail and monster mash to the spooky sounds of the devilish DJ while discovering the history of the mysterious River Thames and hear the tales of the river and marvel at the riverside landmarks.

London’s newest outdoor attraction – Up at The O2 – is upping the thrills for its first ever Halloween event. From 27 October to 4 November, Up at The O2 – Climb of the Cursed gives visitors the chance to experience the exhilarating walkway above one of the Capital’s most iconic venues in the day and in the dark and explore the horrors of London along the way. Along the way there’ll be tricks, treats and surprises, including hidden Trick or Treat pockets in bespoke and cosy climb suits donned by visitors at Base Camp. At the Summit, climbers will be given a gothic-style spooky map of London enabling them to pinpoint and view some of the many horror hotspots of the Capital. A ‘You’ve Survived’ personalized certificate completes the experience on return to ground level. Pre-booking for this very limited capacity spooky experience of a lifetime is highly recommended.

Head to this outdoor adventure center in east London on Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 October for some extreme apple bobbing where you are suspended above a tank of water. Take a flight on the zip wire – Count Zipula – and win a prize for the most sinister laugh. There’s also ‘Pumpkin Bushcraft’ and ‘Going for Ghouls’ archery

The London Dungeon is always a winner for a great place to be scared! This Halloween meet The London Dungeon’s new mischievous Halloween character – The Trickster – residing at the attraction for a limited time only, from 29 September to 4 November. Lurking around corners and ready to startle you and your unsuspecting mates, be prepared to face The Trickster’s terrible torture or, if fortune is on your side, be pleasantly surprised by a sweet treat – all in the name of scary fun.

Double decker sightseeing bus tours are quite normal but have you ever traveled on an all black double decker bus and heard spooky tales of crime and murder as you’re taken around London? Probably not I’d guess but that’s exactly what’s on offer from Ghost Bus Tours.

On-board actors and technical trickery combine to create the scariest tour in town. A creepy conductor provides the commentary for this sinister sightseeing show, revealing haunted palaces, unmarked burial grounds and the skeletons in the capital’s cupboard.

If you are in search of ghosts and ghouls to get you shaking in your boots then a visit to The Tower of London is a must. Many an execution has taken place within these walls from Guy Fawkes to Anne Boleyn whose ghosts are said to dwell within the tower, haunting all those that are brave enough to enter.

So let’s have fun!
