Halloween is fast approaching, and if you haven't already got hold of a costume and booked your spooky activity for this year, now is definitely the time to do so. London's gruesome history and many attractions makes it the perfect place to spend All Hallows Eve. Book yourself into the Rubens at the Palace hotel and then choose from the activities below.

London Dungeon Late

The London Dungeon is an atmospheric experience at the best of times, but this year it's going for gold for a fright night special. Meet Guy Fawkes, Sweeney Todd and Jack the Ripper at one of London's most well-known scary attractions. Now at Embankment next to the London Eye.

The London Bridge Experience & Tombs

This terrifying attraction has been given the dubious honour of being the capital's scariest experience. Taking you back through 2,000 years of bloodstained history, danger lurks in every single shadow on the interactive labyrinth. Scary stuff. Nearest station: London Bridge.

Boo at the Zoo

Devilish delights aplenty are going on at London Zoo this year at the appropriately named Boo at the Zoo. Frightening face painting and eerie animal displays are among the attractions, along with a number of unspecified 'hands-on' activities that are sure to be an inspiration for younger visitors. London Zoo is easily accessible from St John's Wood tube station.

Wicked: The Musical

Wickedly wonderful, this musical is the appropriate Halloween activity for all ages. Wicked tells the story of Elphaba, the misunderstood green girl who grows up to be the infamous Wicked Witch of the West in Frank Baum's classic Wizard of Oz. A smash-hit on Broadway with catchy anthems including Defying Gravity and Popular, it has captivated the hearts and minds of many. With the Rubens at the Palace just around the corner and offering an excellent Theatre and Hotel package, this could be the perfect Halloween activity for everyone.
