Get into the 'spirit' of Halloween with a trip to some spooky London attractions!

The London Dungeon

Perfect for Halloween, The London Dungeon opened a new ride earlier in 2011: ‘Vengeance’ – the UK’s first 5D laser ride.  Vengeance takes you to a 19th Century séance in *50 Berkley Square - London’s most haunted address. The situation quickly spirals out of control and vengeful spirits reap havoc in a world spinning round and round….

?Did you know? According to UK superstition, if you see a ghost, walk around it 9 times and it will disappear. (Not easy to do whilst aboard Vengeance however)

*50 Berkeley Square is currently the home of antiquarian book dealers Maggs Bros. It is said that the attic room of the house is haunted by the spirit of a young woman who committed suicide by throwing herself from the top floor window. The vengeful spirit has reportedly taken the form of a white figure or a brown mist – capable of frightening people to death. In fact, numerous unexplained deaths have occured at the address – all in the attic.

The Tower of London

Ideal for Halloween, The Tower of London is home to some of Britain's bloodiest tales.

Halloween best-bits:

  • The instruments of torture in the Wakefield Tower
  • Who murdered the two Princes? Decide for yourself in The Bloody Tower
  • The Prisoners Exhibition – learn about the Tower’s infamous captives such as Guy Fawkes
  • The Scaffold Site – see where the Tower’s most significant prisoners were executed

London Bridge Experience & Tombs

A thrilling 2-part attraction atmospherically located under the vaults of London Bridge, the London Bridge Experience & Tombs has won London’s best ‘year-round’ scare for 3 years running!

The first part brings to life 2000 years of London Bridge’s fascinating history including Queen Boudicca and the grisly Vikings.

The second part is certainly not for the faint hearted. Formerly a plague-pit, every day is Halloween in The London Tombs where you will meet with ghosts and ghouls, squeeze past blood-covered walls covered relive the horror of the London Plague!
