London is the only one place to be this Halloween. On October 31 the capital will be playing host to all things spine-chilling, with many noted plays taking over London and spooky exhibitions dominating famous museums and buildings. Here are just a few of the creepiest attractions London has to offer for visitors and locals alike:
London Dungeon, 28-34 Tooley Street, London, SE1 2SZ
On a usual day the London Dungeon provides frights for all its visitors. However, on Hallows Eve expect to be scared out of your wits as the stories of Jack the Ripper, Bloody Mary and Sweeney Todd unravel into gory mayhem.
Climb of the Cursed, O2 Arena, Peninsula Square London SE10 0DX
Explore London’s dark history by taking the Climb of the Cursed at the London O2 Arena. Your journey will begin once you meet your infected guide at basecamp and then lead up the creepy stairwell. After climbing 53 meters your expedition will terminate at the rooftop of one of London’s greatest attractions. A few tricks and treats along with some unexpected surprises will be coming your way and once you place your foot upon the first step, there is no going back.
The Climb of the Cursed is suitable for children over the age of 10 years.
Witches and Warlocks Halloween Event, Cutty Sark, King William Walk, London, SE10 9HT
Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween if there wasn’t the opportunity to dress up. Whether you want to disguise yourself from demons or scare your friends and family half to death, the Witches and Warlocks Halloween Event is just for you. Suitable for the whole family, join in the parade wearing a mask that you’ve created, listen to frightening stories and win prizes for the best fancy dress.
The Woman in Black, Fortune Theatre, Russell St, WC2B 5HH
Nothing can be scarier than the things that go bump in the night, and if you’re in the mood for a fright, we couldn’t recommend the West End production of The Woman In Black more. Gothic horror, the supernatural and the suggestion of guts and gore is all provided in this spine-chilling adaptation of Susan Hill's best-selling novel.
These are just a few of the events that are going on in London during Halloween, but we believe that these are the attractions that will make your October 31st the spookiest yet.
