Creepy Things To Do In London

There are two types of people who live for frights. First, there are the party animals who see the 31st  October as the night for dressing up and painting the town fake-blood-red. Then, there are the ones who are here for the scares... for whom this time of year should be a national holiday. Halloween parties are small potatoes for this particular coven; they need something spookier. With that in mind, we've rounded up the creepiest and most haunted things to do in London, with alternative Halloween activities that are a little more hands-on.
