There are a number of opportunities to enjoy the Halloween spirit in London starting from gruesome festive treats to haunted pubs, palaces, and cemeteries. One of the spookiest places is the notorious Tower of London where the ghosts of its tortured and executed prisoners are still occasionally seen there, particularly two executed wives of Henry VIII. The haunted Gallary of the Hampton Court Palace, the​ abandoned underground railway stations, the London Dungeon, Kensal Green, and Brompton cemeteries - these scary spots are not for the faint-hearted. Needless to say, lots of Halloween parties and themed entertainment are offered across the parks, pubs, museums, and other establishments of the city on the dreadful night of the 31st of October.
