Spooky London Attractions To Visit This Halloween

by Rebecca Formston (follow)

Are you looking for somewhere to take the family that'll get you into the Halloween spirit? Here's some fantastic gruesome and spooky places to check out that'll be sure to give you a fright!

Please note, some of these attractions may be unsuitable for younger children.

The London Dungeon

One of London's must-see attractions, The London Dungeon will be sure to get hearts racing in fear this Halloween. New for Halloween is the "full scream ahead' attraction, The Death Express, where brave guests will be transported on a scary journey of 19th century London, on board the old London railway that transported dead bodies!

Tower Of London

The Tower of London is a great way to spend Halloween, exploring its secure fortresses and the old infamous prison, which became home to many executions and tortures. There are also several reported ghostly figures still haunting the halls of the tower!

Hampton Court Palace

Home of Henry VIII who had a thing for gruesome executions, Hampton Court Palace is said to be haunted by one of Henry's beheaded wives! As a special Halloween event for the kids, the palace is putting on the event Horrible Hampton, where young guests can experience all the dirty jobs that needed to be done around the palace.

Ghost Bus Tours

London is a city full of history, some not so nice, so what better way than to explore the city's spookier side than to jump on board a Ghost Bus Tour. The tour is a theatrical one, on board a classic 1960s Routemaster bus, with actors on board and clever technical trickery to give you a scary experience like no other. Explore the most haunted sites of the city whilst enjoying the on board show.

Thorpe Park Fright Night

Fright Nights at the awesome theme park, Thorpe Park are becoming somewhat legendary for thrill seekers everywhere! The park stays open after dark ready for some absolutely terrifying Halloween experiences. For 2017 Fright Nights, there's to be two new attractions, "Living Nightmare" and "Sanctum" as well as the other popular returning scary experiences, ready to give you the fright of your life!

London Tombs

Also known as the UK's "scariest attractions", the London Tombs at The London Bridge is the perfect way to experience a scare this Halloween. The Tombs are situated below London Bridge and you will witness its sinister past during the show. Expect to face your fears such as evil clowns, confined spaces, huge spiders and a maniac butcher! For younger guests under 16 who wish to have The Tombs experience without the huge terrors, there is a "Guardian Angel Tour" available.

Harry Potter World

A great place to spend Halloween for the whole family, particularly if you have any Harry Potter fans in the house! Not only will you experience all the usual magic there is to see, but for this Halloween, the studios have two special spooky events: The Dark Arts and Hogwarts After Dark.
