by Sally Foster (follow)
Get into the spooky spirit this upcoming Halloween

Halloween is definitely one of my favourite times of the year. I love all things scary and spooky, and what is not to love about seeing our little ones all dressed up in their best costume??

This Halloween there is so much happening in London to really get into the spooky spirit. Some events are suitable for older kids, some for younger. All will be fun for the parents! Here is our pick of the best family friendly Halloween events in London this year:

1. Scream Fest at the London Dungeon

My hands down number one favourite attraction in London, just gets even better and scarier at Halloween. The London Dungeon Screamfest is the ultimate Halloween event. With twenty haunting tales and two thrilling rides, guests will come face to face with London’s scariest and most notorious characters. This popular event is sure to sell out fast, so book tickets online as soon as possible.

You can go on a Ghost Bus Tour all year round, but what better time to hop aboard then Halloween?

Explore the most haunted sites of the city whilst enjoying the on board show.

Fright Nights at Thorpe Park are set to both terrify and amaze you as this legendary theme park stays open after dark for Halloween. It is always an absolute blast, and this year is going to be no different. With attractions like The Walking Dead, Saw and The Blair Witch, it is not for the faint hearted that is for sure.

Crowned the UK's scariest attraction, this Halloween at the London Tombs, things just got scarier at the terrifying Halloween spectacular Phobophobia. Over four nights, this annual event has the 'hillbillies' taking over. But don't worry, if it is too scary for you or your younger children, there is still the family friendly tours of the tombs that are much more tame.

The iconic Great Hall set will be decorated with floating pumpkins, just as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and tables will also be laden with a Halloween feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.

Kids can learn wand combat moves, take part in an exciting live duel with Death Eaters and see the original Death Eater costumes from the film series. You can also get hands-on and see exactly how the slime and goo from the movie was created and take a walk down a darker Diagon Alley.
