If you're looking for somewhere truly terrifying this Halloween then a trip to the capital could be just the ticket, with a huge number of scary events set to take place across London at the end of this month.
Aside from having the chance to visit creepy landmarks like the Tower of London, the London Dungeon and the streets of Whitechapel where the legendary Jack the Ripper murdered his victims, tourists and locals will also be able to enjoy a series of other special goings-on.
Among these is Boo at the Zoo, which will be taking place at London Zoo from October 26th to November 3rd and will see the entire venue transformed into a haunted menagerie, with special Halloween-themed animal talks and other activities being held.
Visitors will be able to participate in several fun-filled exercises, such as mask-making, face painting and storytelling.
London Zoo is located in Regent's Park and can be accessed from a number of tube stations, including Camden Town and Chalk Farm.
Elsewhere, the Portobello Pop-up Cinema in West London will be staging a Halloween Movie Mash Up over the weekend of October 25th to 27th, during which a number of truly terrifying horror films will be shown.
In addition to screening movies like the Rocky Horror Show and A Nightmare on Elm Street, the event will also involve a number of other excellent activities such as pumpkin carving, apple bobbing and sing-alongs, while a dressing up box will be on hand as well for those who haven't got a costume.
The London Dungeon is always a good place to go if you're looking to get spooked, but it will be particularly creepy around Halloween, with a huge array of ghastly characters from the city's grisly history coming out to play. Among these will be Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd, while all visitors will be given a trick or treat lolly as well as having the chance to sample to the venue's own Halloween home brew.
