With it’s gruesome history, ghoul-ridden towers and dungeons of doom – what better way to celebrate Halloween than in the capital? Uncovering the spookiest spots in London, I’ve compiled my ultimate list of ghastly goings-on to help you get your fright on.

Not for the faint hearted, Bourne and Hollingsworth’s Terror on the Thames will re-enact some of the most twisted Victorian tales including a life-sized game of ‘Operation.’

Throwing it back to the 90s cult classic ‘The Craft’, The Book Club in Shoreditch officially goes goth with a themed club night with a film screening and jewellery workshop – what more could you want? Find all the details are here.

For those who dare, ramp up the fear factor with Fright Night at Thorpe Park. A stones throw out of the capital, this jam-packed fright fest is filled with after-dark roller coasters and spine-tingling horror mazes – truly terrifying experience!

Taking in the eerie sights of the city, all year around London plays host to various Ghost Walks down in the dark shadows and alleyways. This Halloween creep along the towpaths Little Venice in your finest fancy dress. Find all the details here

And my last recommendation is (of course) a foodie suggestion. Set in the cellars of a Georgian town house, feast your eyes Disappearing Dining Club special edition menu for their Slaughterhouse Supper Club. Dine on delights such as scallop hotdogs with pig’s blood ketchup, blood orange eton mess with many other tasty tricks in store… 

We would love to hear about any spooky happening in your home town this Halloween and bonus points for those that can find somewhere to watch the Rugby World Cup final whilst dressed in your scariest outfit!
