October is only four days away, and that means all of the Halloweeny spooky things are as well. You may believe that Halloween is for one day only but London is spooky all year round. You can’t escape the scares when London has survived everything, including the plagues, the Great Fire of London and a whole lot more. If you’re brave enough to head down to a few of our favourite spooky spots then you can have a great October with a bunch of scares. If you think you’re too old for trick or treating then we have a list of places you can visit, shows to see, and food and drink to get to keep you all in the Halloween spirit.

You've probably arrived at this guide because you've realised you’re moving in in a week and you have no idea what to do half of you have a plastic bag of stuff and the other half of you have taken everything but the kitchen sink. Well luckily for you, we've done pretty much all the research for you. In fact, we've written the draft right here! It probably just needs a few tweaks from you based on your own personal needs… Don’t forget they will have shops where you're going, and it could be easier (and cheaper) to wait until arriving at university before buying some items.
