Halloween has always seemed more of a yearly treat than a trick, to me.
With a nip in the air and the nights getting ever longer, I’m sure children and grownups alike will be looking forward to the devilishly good dressing up, pumpkin carving, apple bobbing and chocolate-eating Halloween delights soon to be had.
As Halloween celebrations took root from ancient British and Celtic culture, I think that we Brits should make sure that All Hallows’ Eve is nothing short of spooktacular.
And with my ghoulishly good suggestions below, it’s easy to find something that’s goose-bump inducing-ly good this Halloween.
London Dungeon’s Spooktacular Halloween
With a host of spine-tingling attractions, a trip to the London Dungeon is set to scare your socks off this Halloween.
Wander the Dungeon’s haunted halls and hear the ‘sounds of hell’ echo around the spooky specially-built labyrinth. And watch out for Jack O’Lantern who will be prowling the premises until the 31st October.
‘Fright Night’ at Thorpe Park
Promising that it’s a ‘whole different park after dark,’ Thorpe Park has unveiled a brand new Terror Zone – featuring new, scary rides and horror mazes – that’s sure to leave you spooked.
From the Hellgate Mansion to a haunted crime scene or grisly asylum – there’s definitely something to put everyone in a cold sweat at Thorpe Park this Halloween.
And remember to check for hotel and ticket packages before you’re sent running scared.
‘Hocus Pocus’ at Chessington World of Adventures
Those looking for a little hubble, bubble, toil and trouble should head to Chessington World of Adventures this Halloween – as brave park visitors will find cackling witches waiting behind Chessington’s creaking gates.
Choose to brew up your own potions and banish the witches or get personal with the zoo’s creepy crawlies.
And remember to check our ticket packages before reaching for your broomstick.
‘Haunted Hollow Trials’ at Warwick Castle
With haunted tours, pumpkin strewn grounds and a spooky dungeon – you’ll be in for a fright at Warwick Castle this Halloween.
Spot headless spirits roaming the Great Hall and witch finders prowling the grounds as you take a haunted after dark tour or try a dungeons after dark dining experience.
But don’t lose your head this Halloween – remember to check our hotel and ticket packages.
Frightening Fireworks at Legoland Windsor
Have a wiz of a time at Legoland Windsor’s Wizards Fireworks and Grand Tournament of Spells. Running up until the 6th of November, the show promises to be spell binding as many wizards gather to search for a new Great Elder.
Watch the wizards conjure up magical potions until the Elder is revealed – with fireworks set off to celebrate.
