Visitors planning London hotel packages could be tempted by the capital’s wide range of Halloween events that are happening next month.
VisitLondon is highlighting a number of spooky happenings as the city prepares for the scariest night of the year.
The London Dungeons will be unveiling a new Halloween character from September 29th to November 4th as part of its horror show. As well as the new Trickster, visitors to the popular London attraction can see other frightening people such as Sweeny Todd and Jack the Ripper.
One of London’s most popular attractions, the London Dungeons is located next to the entrance to London Bridge mainline and Underground station. Visitors can enjoy 14 live shows performed by actors as well as three different rides during their visit.
All of the attractions are based on the past 1,000 years of London’s history including events such as the Great Fire of London, the Black Death and the 18th century courtrooms – where the punishments were unpredictable and often lethal.
Admission on the door costs £24 for adults and £18.60 for those aged 15 and under or tickets can be booked online for £6 and £10.
Meanwhile, the Victoria & Albert Museum is hosting a number of Halloween-themed events ranging for horror film screenings, fake blood screen-painting as well as special workshops and talks.
For those looking for more natural scary creatures, the WWT Wetland Centre is ideal as it is hosting special evenings filled with disgusting experiments and gruesome stories, while the Natural History Museum is conducting its own terror tours on October 31st with five scientists revealing the most scariest specimens in the collection.
