Your relocation to London is going to throw up some new adventures as well as give you that, “We’re not in Kansas anymore…” feeling from time to time. Nostalgia and homesickness can strike at any time, especially because it is Halloween weekend and we are counting down to Thanksgiving.
It’s not the same, but then again, you don’t get real ghosts, or the Tower of London back home, so with an adventurous ‘spirit’, and a great attitude after your relocation, you could end up spending your Halloween weekend doing something a more interesting than knocking on doors for candy.
Halloween at the London Dungeon is guaranteed to raise more than just the hairs on the back of your neck. The tour which is on until 31 October, follows the story of ‘Stingy Jack’ who is condemned to walk the halls of the London dungeon for all eternity. It’s a great show and can be enjoyed by the whole family. If you’ve just arrived after your relocation, the Dungeon is one of the premier tourist attractions in the city. It’s a fascinating and often horrific and realistic look at the torture, beheadings and gruesome atrocities from the very depths of English history. That makes it doubly scary on Halloween when the ghosts of tortured victims are said to come out to play.
Tickets to the London Dungeon do not just include a guided tour, it’s a full immersion experience with rides and activities, including the new 5D laser ride called ‘Vengeance’ or if you’re feeling extra adventurous you could attempt ‘Extremis: Drop Ride to Doom’. The London Dungeon is a complete day out and if, like many Americans moving at this time of year, you are feeling a little homesick for some Halloween cheer, book for a tour at the London Dungeon.
Entry is not cheap: You will have to fork over about £25 per adult if you pay at the door. If you want to visit any of the premium tourist attractions in the city after your relocation you should book online, not only do you skip the long lines at the attraction, but also you will save quite a bit of cash. You can also book a combi-ticket, which will get you into FOUR of the top attractions for a discount of 30%.
