1) Horse drawn Halloween ride in Richmond Park
This isn’t simply just a stroll through Richmond Park on a crisp autumn day. No, instead it as an hour long tour of Richmond Park on a horse drawn carriage in pitch black! During the tour you will learn about the ghosts that roam the park and the Victorian murders that took place on the very grounds you are passing through. Terrifying!
P.S Don’t worry you are given a glass of Gin and a blanket to hide under if the experience becomes too scary to handle!
2) Necropolis- London’s Journey of the Dead
London has a history of crime, disease and murders. One of the most horrific periods of time in London’s history was during the 1850’s, when ghastly medical conditions plagued the City and led to a surge in fatalities. This all culminated in more deaths then London could handle. A lot of the deceased were buried under stations and what was known as the London Necropolis railway.
You now have the chance to visit the remains of Necropolis station, which is located in caverns under Waterloo. As part of a historical tour, you will delve into the stations deep and dark history. This is sure to terrify even the most hardened Halloween fan!
3) Watch Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho in the ghoulish Union Chapel
Watch one of Hitchcock’s greatest and arguably scariest masterpieces in the gothic Union Chapel. To make the experience even more frightening, a live performance of this classic production will accompany the film. So hold on to your cocktails and be prepared for an evening of thrills!
Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the Chapel fund, which is used for vital improvements to the Chapel. So head down for a truly worthwhile cause.
4) Tales of the Plague
1665 was arguably one of the worst years for London. The great plague sweeped through the city and killed 100’s of thousands of people. Despite the fact that this event happened hundreds of years ago, there is still traces of the reminisce of the black plague across London.
If you are interested in seeing the devastation that the great plague caused, a two hour walking will take place on Halloween in the City of London. The tour will guide you through spots of London which were ravaged by the black lague and will give you an insight on how average Londoners dealt with the infestation. This isn’t one for those with weak stomachs!
