London Dungeon
The London Dungeon is scary at the best of times, but at Halloween it comes alive. The special event this year is The Scare Witch Trial (until Oct 31) where the starnge creatures roam around you and, if you're not careful, you might just find yourself on trial.

Dover Castle
This place is dubbed Britain's most haunted castle for a reason. A host of haunting events have been programmed to add to the thrill, though the spooky ghost trail around the castle is particularly worth catching (Oct 26 to Oct 31).
