For something truly spooky and in the original spirit of the season, London is unbeatable for ghost walks and tours. Many of London’s historic landmarks are said to be haunted, and you can explore many of these with the help of a professional guide. Whether you want to learn more about the history of the locations or simply get scared out of your mind, these tours may be perfect. We recommend trying a walking tour of the Tower of London area, or venturing somewhere truly creepy like the Greenwich Foot Tunnel.

Taking it to the next level, Halloween fanatics may want to go all out and visit some major spooky attractions in and around London. You might choose to visit the Medieval Banquet in St Katherine’s Dock, a dramatic affair with entertainment from terrifying hosts along with an authentic four-course meal with traditional ale and wine.
