There are two schools of thought regarding the history of Halloween. The first is that All Hallows’ Eve started as a pagan ritual celebrating the dead. The other claims that October 31 was carved out as a Christian feast day, following the model of similar events in Europe.

Over the years, Halloween has become one of the biggest parties on the worldwide calendar, known for combining cultural and literary symbols like ghosts, pumpkins, scarecrows, and monsters. Whether young or old, everyone looks forward to the last day of October, especially in London.

Halloween in London 2014 is Franken-packed with a slew of scary good Halloween parties like Halloween Scream. There, costumed guests participate in the annual Fancy Dress Competition and enjoy live music courtesy of some of London’s best local bands.

Adventurous ghosts and ghouls head to the spooky London Dungeon where they’ll learn the disturbing history of famed crazies Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd. Due to haunting special effects and the superb work of actors playing frightening roles, London Dungeon is clearly one of the creepiest Halloween events in the UK.

This Hallows’ Eve, there’s no better place than London to put on your best Harry Potter or Sherlock Holmes costume and trick-or-treat to your heart’s content.
