With the spookiest weekend of the year fast approaching here is our guide for a haunting weekend in West London.

Where to go:

Kensington Palace are hosting Eerie Evening Tours, revealing tales of mysterious sightings and unexplained happenings in a guided tour of the shadowy state apartments. The tour will divulge accounts of undignified deaths and heartbroken kings and queens. These 90 minute tours require booking and the hosts advise you tie your cloaks tight and keep your lanterns lit for the duration of this haunting trail!

Where to drink:

The Bluebird café in Chelsea is serving up a spooktacular array of Halloween themed cocktails for you to enjoy until the 1st of November. You can enjoy concoctions such as the Witches Poison, Jekyll and Hyde, a cocktail made to share and served in a real pumpkin or Dracula’s Kiss including blood orange puree and fresh red chilli! The Bluebird is has also opened their very own pumpkin patch in the courtyard, allowing you to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner in a seasonal Halloween space!
