Although it is predominantly an American tradition, Halloween is still an integral part of the British calendar. Halloween does have some spiritual and religious connotations, but it’s more of an excuse for Londoners to dress up and have a little fun. Whether you’re a movie buff, trick-or-treat tweaker, or ghost of the sound system scene, there’s plenty on offer for both adults and children this Halloween in London. Below are some of the top picks coming up this fall that will give you the opportunity to add extra scares to your London visit.
Prince Charles Cinema
For the best in horror, the Cinephiles cinema, the Prince Charles, is the place to be. Located just off Leicester Square, the Prince Charles Cinema offers a great selection of great Halloween movies until the end of October. Whether it’s the heartbreaking Texas Chainsaw Massacre or the legendary Evil Dead, this is the place to go if you’re looking for comfortable seats and a great movie atmosphere.
London Bridge Phobia unhinged
The London Bridge Scare Maze is a brilliant experience in the tombs under London Bridge. While you learn more about the history of the area, you will also experience a variety of scary creatures and ghouls. This is not for the faint of heart, and whether you’re looking for some history with a bite or some gross-out fun, the London Bridge Experience is the place for you this Halloween.
Horror Escape Rooms – The Impossible Murder Mystery.
In the bowels of Drury Lane, you’ll find an Escape Room like no other. Faced with a murderer behind bars and a series of clues, you and your team must figure out how the killer keeps killing from his prison cell. As the clock ticks, you and the police must search the creepy locked room and figure out how the killer keeps killing.
Secret Halloween Cinema
Secret Cinema has become one of the most unique cinema experiences in the world. They have taken the world by storm with immersive screenings of Blade Runner, Romeo and Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and last year’s 28 Days Later. Secret Cinema works by showing films in an immersive and immersive way, bookstores with actors who immerse guests in the world of the film they’re about to see. Whether it’s the glittering world of Moulin Rouge or the dystopian future of Blade Runner, audiences can dress up and join in the fun, with unique cocktails and multi-layered theatrics to follow. While Secret Cinema’s program remains just that mystery, it’s very likely that this Halloween will see another frightening and immersive experience.
