Halloween in London

Spending Halloween in London? Have a terrific, terrifying time with our pick of the best Halloween parties, events for kids and more

If you're going to celebrate Halloween this year (Monday October 31 2016), we suggest you go all out.

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.
