London’s Scariest Attractions
Spending time with us this Halloween? We list below our picks of London’s Scariest attractions. We will not take responsibility for tears, hysteria or cardiac arrests! These attractions run all year round (except Fright Night at Thorpe Park), so don’t fret if you can’t make it for October 31st.
A rather typical quaint Shoreditch pub? Guess again—this 2 century long-running bar has a tangled history with Jack the Ripper, Spitalfield’s most infamous resident. Two of the murdered women frequented the Ten Bells, and rumours of ghost sightings are frequent. If that’s not spooky enough, poltergeist activity and the possible ghost of an old landlord have been reported by staff. So if you pop in for a pint, be on the lookout.
Cemeteries are creepy territory and London is home to plenty. Since the mid 1970’s locals have complained about a brilliant orange light emanating from one of the tombstones in the western section of the City of London Cemetery in Wanstead. Despite repeated attempts, investigators have been unable to find any light source outside the graveyard that could account for the phenomenon. Spooky, eh?
You can’t have a scary list without The London Dungeon! Jump out of your skin at live actors, spine-tingling rides and alarmingly realistic models, which bring London’s dark past to life. Things have moved on since the last time some of us went here and it definitely doesn’t disappoint! With lots of new attractions and extension of their popular ‘Lates’ sessions for over 18’s it’s a must visit, we’ve got our tickets booked!
Not for the wimps out there! this is one scary experience! It will have you screaming for freedom, with lots of surprises as you explore your way through the London tombs. If you don’t cope well with confined spaced, this is not for you. If you have kids, they do a ‘guardian angels tour’ where a guide will show them through so they can experience the tombs without the horror’s chasing them.
If you have more time on your hands this is well worth a visit. The theme park opens its doors after hours and visitors can experience the rides after dark, great if there is a group of you. If you are going to the haunted mazes do not stand at the back of the line if you are easily scared! Zoe did not cope well with that experience!
A London tour with a twist…This old route master takes you on a tour of London visiting all the usual spots, such as The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. But be prepared for the gruesome tales and surprises that lie within! The ghost bus has a secret story of its own… The bus is also available for private hire and parties.
This list would not be complete without mentioning Jack the Ripper, London’s most gruesome serial killer of all time. This tour is the most up to date and you will be taken to each of the murder scenes and gather up clues and evidence from murder cases, there is also a stop off at the Ten Bells pubs, which is thought to have been visited regularly by the ripper himself. The tour is said to come alive on 31st October, so our advice will be to book for this night.
