If you’re moving to London and following this blog, you might recall that the other week I mentioned compiling a list of recommended Halloween movies set in London or England in general (see “Relocation to London UK – Top 5 Halloween in London Posts”). I myself had almost forgotten! Well, if you’re planning your London move and trying to imagine what life will be like walking its streets, don’t worry, they’re not as horrific as what’s depicted below (not that the London property market isn’t terrifying at times…). This is just for a bit of fun as you prepare to live in the historic and atmospheric UK that lends itself so well as haunting backdrop to all sorts of spooky lore.
Happy Halloween – enjoy!
There is no doubt about it, summer is well and truly behind us. There is a chill is in the air, but there are still plenty of things to look forward to: fabulous winter activities to keep both adults and children entertained. Relocating to London is a stressful task, so reward yourself by filling your diary with some lovely events to look forward to! Winter is my time of year – I love wrapping up warm, and coming in from the cold to a cosy house and a cup of tea!
Are you wondering what you’re going to do come Halloween after your relocation to London? While traditionally not celebrated to the extent that it is in other parts of the world, there are still Halloween celebrations and parties to be found in the city.

If you’re relocating to London UK, one of the quickest ways to settle into your new home is to participate in the local cultural festivities! I’ve been writing about the October events in London and mentioned yesterday that we have plans to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day in west London this November. And, if you’ve been following my Sunday Weekend Warrior posts lately, you’ll know that Guy Fawkes is a notable figure in history due to his contribution to the Gunpowder Plot, a Catholic-rights conspiracy to overthrow the government in 1605. The official holiday is November 5th each year, but various locations in and around London host fireworks throughout the entire weekend. If you’re moving to London in time for it, check the links below for a show nearest your new London apartment rental: [read more]
