This Halloween I would really recommend visiting the winner of the UK's best scare award for the past 7 years The London Bridge Experience and Tombs. There are two different shows running this halloween (24th - 31st of October) one being a family friendly daytime show from 10am - 5pm and then an adults only high intense scare show from 6pm - 10pm called Phobophobia. 


I know that the tickets are booking up quickly due to its popularity but if tickets are still available it's well worth a trip.
