Historic, hauntingly beautiful and, for one night a year, purposefully horrifying - welcome to Halloween in London. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves to treat you to a bewitching evening in the capital…

The Jack The Ripper Tour is a grisly, realistic trip around the Whitechapel area this notorious murderer terrorised in the late 19th century. Featuring police evidence, hand-held projectors and a team of actors bringing the tales to life, this is a fascinating yet frightening one definitely not one for the faint-hearted! Find out more here.

History springs into action after dark with the Coutours Old City Ghost Walk tour, meandering from chancery Lane to St. Paul’s Cathedral and taking in dilapidated graveyards, disused prisons, execution spots and even moaning plague pits - keep your wits about you so you don’t join them down there! 

Free London Walking Tours has also got a devilish detour about the town, from haunted theatres to ghoulish barflies, these super spooks take you beyond the hidden depths of London after dark in and around (the usually quaint and cute) Covent Garden from Temple Underground just off the Thames.



The Museum of London Docklands is putting on a special Halloween midnight frightfest, exploring the nooks and crannies and brushing away the cobwebs from the museum’s creepier corners, plus hair-raising facts about the workers on the docks from yesteryear and how they met their own makers. 
 
If you’re feeling the chill before it’s even entered your bones, The Ghost Bus Tours offer a gorgeously refurbished vintage double-decker Routemaster bus trip that takes in the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. Brace yourselves for a comprehensive, comedic parody of the paranormal!

Soothe your nerves afterwards at the Amba Hotel Marble Arch - itself a spirited spot perfectly located for some extra exploring.
