Amazing days out for your Halloween celebrations this year!
Halloween is upon us once again, and that means it's time to get out and about to enjoy some spooky fun.
If you're looking for ideas on how to celebrate Halloween this year, we've got some great suggestions for days out that will definitely get you into the Halloween spirit.
Where did our Halloween traditions all begin?
The ancient origins of our Halloween traditions, including trick or treating, came from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which became All Souls Day, where "Souling" was popularised. Kids and adults would go door to door dressed as spirits, accepting food in exchange for prayers. Over time, this has evolved into the Halloween trick-or-treating tradition we know today.
But why not change that tradition up?
And go for something different this year, whether you're looking for scary, spooky or just plain fun - we've got it.
For those wanting a super scary day out...
If you're looking to celebrate Halloween by going on a scary experience...
You've got to visit London Bridge for a real knock your socks off scare.
