Halloween in London is an occasion that people take very seriously in the capital, and honestly, we’re here for every second of it. If you adore blood and gore, being scared out of your mind, or simply just want an excuse to drink your liver dry this weekend in fancy dress, then we have got you covered on all grounds. So take a seat, and prepare yourself for some of the best things you can do to celebrate Halloween in London this weekend.
Party, Party, Party
In a city filled with pubs, clubs, and bars, it is pretty much guaranteed that the biggest names will be hosting Halloween-themed nights, and seeing as the 31st falls on a Sunday this year, you can most definitely say goodbye to those 9am Monday lectures. Most clubs will have a dress code this weekend, that being come in any costume you desire, and who are we to say no to a good fancy dress night? Many of the big names such as Ministry of Sound, XOYO, and Fabric to name a few will also have many drink deals on offer, and will only have a few tickets left to buy, so make sure to head over to Fatsoma to see the best deals near you.
With places such as Ballie Ballerson, All Star Lanes and The Prince taking their brunches to the spooky side this week, if you’re going to celebrate Halloween in London you might as well start early, right? Free-flowing creepy cocktails are a speciality at bottomless brunch, especially during these festivities, so we’d say it’d be pretty rude not to get involved at least once this year.
Ghost Tours and Hunts
If you don’t quite fancy boozing it up this weekend, and would rather be genuinely frightened for Halloween, then one thing you and your friends can do is check out the ghost tours and hunts happening all around London. Some of the most famous ones include The Ghost Bus Tour, Jack the Ripper Ghost Walks and Haunted Happenings, designed to resurrect all the fear back into your system, especially as the majority happen well after dark.
Halloween is taking over all of London’s most famous attractions this weekend; from London Dungeon’s to the Tower of London, you can explore all the gruesome tales that took place in the capital. You can even take it to the Thames, if you really wish, and explore the London eye river cruise whilst listening to the spooky tales of the river and sipping on blood orange gin.
Halloween Escape Rooms
Escape rooms alone are time-pressuring enough when you’re not being approached by flesh eating zombies, a murderous butcher and a ticking time bomb; if you love the adrenaline these horror-filled ones are the perfect thing to do for Halloween in London this year. ‘No Escape’ has places dotted around central and south London, so if you’re REALLY in the mood to be spooked out this weekend, they are the best place to check out.
