Halloween is often associated with the famous “trick or treat”, the orange and black colors, the pumpkins and, above all, fancy dress parties. Then with its eventful history and mysterious legends, with its dark dungeons, towers and a bloody bloodstained history, could it be a better place to celebrate Halloween than in London? London has what you need, whether party or visits to some of the places that organize performances and events to mark the day of Halloween. Street festivals, carnivals, parades, exhibitions and fairs: there are dozens of unique events across the capital. Let’s see some of the events taking place in London for this terrific party!

London Dungeon: An interactive experience for those who love terror. There are circuits with professional actors and attractions like the new Vengeance 5D where you shoot ghosts with laser tags while going through the circuit at full speed. Also you can review the city’s darkest moments, like the fire in 1666, the plague, Bedlam or Jack the Ripper.

Phobophobia: Very close to the dungeon there’s another experience not to be missed in Halloween at London Bridge. . You can tour the fort under the bridge, a place with its own grim history since the heads of the executed were exhibited there. Connected to the fort are the tombs of London, where they found skeletons of bodies that ended up there during the plague. Every Halloween they prepare a special spectacle that named Phobophobia, which takes place in the underground tunnels of London Bridge. Dark corners, rotting flesh, winding spiders, spooky clowns. All elements of this Halloween will put us the willies!

Jack O’Lantern & The Sounds of Hell: it’s a special event that legend has it that Jack was condemned by the devil to wander through the dark with his lamp for all eternity. But this Halloween, visitors will face Jack, who will walk through the dark corridors of the dungeons, they’ll try to escape his lair, be at Hell gates and enter a new world of fear. Who will survive?
