Valentine’s Day In London
Arguably the most romantic celebration of the year, Valentine’s Day gets us feeling all sentimental and full of appreciation for our other halves. Here’s what we have got planned for the month of love.
14th September 2022
Climb aboard this spooky open-top bus for a spine-tingling tour of London’s gruesome past. In 75 minutes, your creepy conductor will show you the best city sights whilst delving into the grisly details of London’s most popular attractions. Whizzing around the capital, you will be on board the historic ghost bus, which began its life along with a fleet of others within The Necropolis Bus Company – a 19th century private funeral bus service which carried the deceased, pallbearers and mourners to the graveyard. With such a ghostly history, are you brave enough to step on board?
Grab your broomstick and zoom over to Charlton House in Greenwich on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th October. Little witches and wizards can craft their own potions, hats and wands, and discover the mystical side of the centuries-old manor house, enjoying lots of Halloween goodies along the way. Costumes are welcome, of course!
Any horror fans reading? If so, then you should definitely visit The London Dungeon between 15-31 October. Suitably spooky all year round, but this Halloween season promises to set your hearts racing much faster than ever with its new haunted attic feature, ’50 Berkeley Square’. Mystery, murder and madness surrounds the terrifying legend of this property with countless lives lost. Will you survive?
This October, swing through the trees during sundown and experience the spookier side of Go Ape. As the skies turn an inky black and the stars begin to twinkle, brave the forest heights, but don’t forget to watch your step! Sundown sessions can be booked for Fridays and Saturdays from 5.30pm onwards, between 15-30 October 2022.
Calling all Harry Potter fans! The popular studio tour returns for another year with its mystical Dark Arts feature, where wizard fans young and old can wander the sets of the hit movie franchise which has been decorated especially in various ghostly decorations for Halloween. Sneak through Diagon Alley but watch out for Death Eaters on the prowl as you go on the hunt for the infamous Dark Mark. The studios are only a 35-minute journey from London Euston, so it’s perfect for a day out of the city.
