#Halloween. Are You Ready?

Here's what we got up to on Halloween last year…





There's a Ghost Walk with London Walks every night of the year, but on Halloween we really go to town – all over town. Four different ghost walks – each with guaranteed ghosts! – provide shivers, shocks and laughs aplenty.



Here's the Full Bloody Schedule For Halloween 2014

The Ghostly Old City on Halloween goes at 7 pm from St. Paul's Tube, exit 2


The Halloween West End Ghost Walk goes at 7.30 pm from Embankment Tube


Haunted London on Halloween goes at 7.30 pm from Monument Tube, the Fish Street Hill exit


Ghosts, Gaslight & Guinness on Halloween goes at 8 pm from Holborn Tube






A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
