West End and City Ghost Tours from London Walks

When is it? October 31

Where is it? Various locations

What is it? Apparently you’re guaranteed to see a ghost or two on London Walks’ Halloween tours. In a city like London with its long and grizzly history, who’d be surprised (although we’d still jump out our skin if we saw one). Spot apparitions in alleys in the ancient City, or groan at gruesome theatre terrors in the West End. You’ll be spooked zipping around London from now on.

Nearest Zipcar? Golf Grinning, Barbican – Charterhouse Square, Golf Goffinet, London Bridge – Tooley Street, Polo Kirby, Barter Street – Holborn, we could go on…

13th Hour Horror Festival

When is it? October 24 – November 4

Where is it? Leicester Square Theatre, 6 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BX

What is it? Celebrate all things horror throughout this frightful fortnight from AlleyKat Productions. From zombie comedy (zomedy) to plays by torchlight, there are sacks of scares (and sniggers) to be had.

Eat Your Heart Out

When is it? October 26-28

Where is it? The Pathology Museum, 3rd Floor Robin Brook Centre, London, EC2A 7BE

What is it? Ever fancied eating a set of lungs, or drinking stomach contents? Probably not. But Eat Your Heart Out’s delicious anatomically correct cake and cocktail shop (just for adults), may change your mind (that’s if you can stomach the realism, of course). Remember, don't drink and Zip. WARNING: This event is not for the faint-hearted or the weak-stomached.
