Halloween Activities in London for 2017

London is spooky af all year round. With such a gruesome history of murder, plague and haunted sites around the historic city, it’s no wonder that it’s filled with attractions suited to the Halloween lovers in the UK. Do you want to get chased by an alien through corridors filled with wax dolls? You got it. Fancy a ride on the Death Express? Go ahead. Although there are so many spooky attractions in Liverpool, I didn’t want to leave out a post about Halloween in London before the month is out!


One of the most famous horror shows in London, The Exorcist, opened its doors on the 20th of October this year, and you can still get your hands on a ticket. You’ll watch the terror unfold at Phoenix Theatre, and you can read a bit more about the play here: http://visitlondon/things-to-do

It tells the story of a young girl’s mysterious symptoms and Father Damien’s attempt to lure the demon out of her. It’s not for the faint of heart, but it’s perfectly thrilling for Halloween if you’re not into being chased around a haunted house for an hour – and it’s so much more gripping when you watch the story as a theatre show.

If you’re into the idea of spooky theatre, The Woman in Black is currently running a number of shows in London’s West End. A must for any horror fanatic or lover of anything theatre; join the seven million people who have already clasped the edge of their seat in fright this Halloween…


If you’re a huge Halloween fan, you can find so many attractions based around the spooky holiday in London. Most activities are held in the city centre, so to make things easier, you may want to stay in a central location. If you’re travelling to the city for a weekend, check out http://www.londonservicedapartments.co.uk/ for some great accommodation.

The Death Express may be quite frightening (as it is a train line which used to carry dead bodies out of the city!) but it’s actually rather family-friendly, and a great pick if your kids are coming along.

After a ride on the train, you’ll be able to explore the rest of the London Dungeon, where spooky historical figures are brought to life with great actors and epic stories.
