Some of the Halloween events taking place in the capital can be a bit too much for young ones (and some old ones). Thankfully, there's a whole host of familyfriendlyand fun activities to keep your children entertained over the Halloween season.


Boo at the Zoo

The zoo is given a spooky makeover for Halloween.

ZSL London Zoo, Regent's Park Outer Circle, Primrose Hill, London, NW1 4RY

Tube: Chalk Farm Station


Dates: 22nd to 30th October 2016


A full programme of Halloween events is on offer at London Zoo this half term with Boo at the Zoo, inviting you to explore a spooky schedule that includes animal demonstrations, hands-n crafts and Halloween-themed activities. There will also be spooky versions of the zoo's popular animal talks, feeds and demonstrations. All activities are included in the ZSL London Zoo standard price admission and, if booked online, there is free pumpkin carving with every child ticket bought.


Hallowe'en at Ham House

There are lots of spooky goings on at the National Trust property this Halloween.

Ham House & Gardens, Ham Street, Ham, Richmond, London, TW10 7RS

Tube: Richmond Station


Dates: 24th to 28th Oct 2016


Ham House is hosting lots of spooky goings on once again this Halloween. The Hallowe'en half term activities include a spooky garden trail and storytelling sessions as well as the chance to create a spooky piece of art to take home. So dress up in your scariest outfit and head on down to the mansion for a week of spooktactic activities.


Kids' Kino Club: The Corpse Bride

Regent Street Cinema, 309 Regent Street, London, W1B 2HW

Tube: Oxford Circus Station


Dates: Saturday 29th October 2016


Part of the Kids' Kino Club, which runs every Saturday morning, showing recent and classic films for kids, the Regent Street Cinema will be screening The Corpse Bride this Halloween. The charming film tells the story of a shy groom who practices his wedding vows in the inadvertent presence of a diseased woman. What he didn't anticipate, however, was that she would rise from the grave assuming he has married her. Tickets are creepily cheap at just 1.75 for children and there will be prizes for the best costumes.


Nights Owls Halloween Sleepover

Don your scariest fancy dress and explore the museum after dark.

Museum of London, 150 Wall, London, EC2Y 5HN

Tube: Barbican Station, St. Paul's Station


Dates: Friday 28th October 2016


The Museum of London is hosting a family friendly Nights Owls Halloween Sleepover this October, suitable for children aged seven to eleven. Visitors will be invited to don their scariest fancy dress and trick-or-treat their way around the ghostly galleries by torchlight. There will also be a creepy activity trail, a spooky crime that needs to be solved and the chance to sneak into the Fire! Fire!Exhibition after hours. Bed down in the museum for lights out at midnight and then rise bright and early for breakfast and a family friendly film.
