There is no doubt that Londoners know how to put on the very best Halloween celebrations.  Many events are planned and below highlights just a few of them.  Why not don your spookiest costume and join like-minded souls on the scariest night of the year?

Trawl the river on a Thames Rocket

Get ready to experience a boat ride with a creepy skipper guiding you down the river in the dark of the night for a Thames Thriller experience. If travelling on water does not rock your boat, then head down to Hampton Court Palace for a scary ghost tour of the regal residence.

Manage your fears and explore the palace as you dare to be led through its grounds in the dark, dark night. Visit the Home of Halloween, the London Dungeon for their multi-sensory Witch Hunter show. Discover 1,000 years of London's dark history in nineteen shows, featuring some of the greatest villains and rogues, two thrilling rides and plenty of startling surprises.

Cocktails and dancing Halloween style!

Why not treat yourself to Halloween themed cocktails at The Roof Gardens? A selection of spine-tingling drinks, live music and a fired-up barbeque ensure a memorable night! Guests can join the Halloween disco on board The Golden Star.

The dark side of the National Portrait Gallery

A visit to the National Portrait Gallery is never a disappointment.  Celebrating Halloween will be an unusual experience with visitors experiencing the darker side of their latest collection. While your face is painted with sinister shades to the background of macabre folk music, visit the pop-up bars around the gallery, and explore how paintings have been inspired by tales of darkness.
