Take a ghostly walk in London this Halloween

It’s Halloween today, and whilst these American consumption festivals aren’t really your author’s sort of thing, the festival is supposedly based around the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain, when the Celts believed the walls between our world and the next became thin and porous.

So this evening is a good time to go on a London ghostly walk.

London Walks are, as usual, on hand with a few such events, with the Ghostly Old City on Halloween leaving at 7pm from St Paul’s tube station, exit 2, Haunted London on Halloween leaving from Monument at 7.30pm, Ghosts, Gaslight & Guinness leaving at 7.30pm from Holborn and Apparitions, and Alleyways & Ale leaving from 8pm from Embankment.

Your author has only previously completed the Apparitions, Alleyways and Ale walk, which was pleasantly spooky - especially the jaunt through St James’ Park.
