Seventeen things to do in London this Halloween


Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year; and apart from spending it in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam last year being pelted with paint by little kids, there is nowhere else I like to spend it than London. Each year Halloween becomes a bigger thing in the city and more people take the time to dress up and head out to their local haunts, along with this growing popularity more and more events are popping up all over the London zones meaning there is something to suit almost everyone.

  1.  Celebrate the day of the dead with Wahaca at the Waterloo Vaults.
  2. Attend a ‘Stranger things’ themed party at the Hoxton Square bar and kitchen .
  3. Pick your own perfect pumpkin at the Strawberry farm, Upminster.
  4. Join the Animals for a ‘Boo in the Zoo’ at ZSL London Zoo.
  5. Get terrified at the UK voted most scariest attraction – The London Bridge Experience. New for this year – Phobophobia.
  6. Watch the West-Ends scariest and longest-running show – The Woman in Black.
  7. Take a haunted walk around the street of London with London Ghost Walks.
  8.  Dance the night away with Capital FM’s Monster Mash up at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo.
  9.  Join Musical Bingo for their Halloween ball in Shoreditch.
  10. Party at the top of the Sky Garden with ‘Sky High Screams’ and take in the fantastic views of the city.
  11. Join the circus and watch aerial acrobatics at The Twisted Circus Halloween Extravaganza.
  12. Watch the cult classic Halloween movies at the iconic Rivoli Ballroom.
  13. Show off your pumpkin carving skills while drinking Champagne at Veuve Clicquot, King’s Cross.
  14.  Join the rave at Hed Kandi Halloween in Shoreditch.
  15.  Set Sail on the Zombie Pirate Ship which sets sail from London Tower Pier.
  16. Join the Launch of Boxpark Croydon with Special guest Wiley.
  17. Take a Halloween tunnel trip with Camden canals.halloween-london

    I have booked to go to Disneyland Paris for Halloween to seek out nightmare before christmas characters but there’s so much in London I wanted to do. The stranger thing parties look so much fun and of course the day of the dead thing at waterloo vaults also looked good x

    The Zombie Pirate ship sounds great! We’d definitely be up for one of the ghost walks in the city as well!
