Halloween in London

Events, Nightlife, Things to Do, What's New — By Erin Gallagher Maury on October 30, 2010 at 2:40 pm

Halloween is begrudgingly catching on by the Brits. Don’t expect over the top decorations, loads of sugary sweets & clever costumes. It’s more of a one night event as opposed to the a month long celebration in the U.S., just another reason to socialize at the pub.  If you’re looking for a party then head to just about any nightclub where you’ll find the 20-something crowd in scary/sexy garb boozing until the wee hours. Otherwise check out a few suggestions on how to spend your Halloween in London:
