You will be surprised that most towns have some kind of creepy history about local ghouls who still come back on occasions to visit the living! You can even book for a group of friends to go and make it a real Halloween party, many ghost walks will finish off in a local public house to enjoy a few drinks and settle the nerves!
Whether you want to visit London and tour the streets of White Chapel and follow in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper or prefer a local ghost walk, it can add up to a really entertaining evening of ghostly fun with a few scares along the way.
Another famous London venue opening this year for Halloween ghost tours is Prince William and Kate’s London residence of Kensington Palace.

The palace has long been speculated to house a number of ghouls, including the spirit of Queen Mary, Peter the Wild Boy and an anonymous sinister figure, who has been spotted at various windows in the property.
