Take a train to… Halloween at the London Bridge Experience

The London Bridge Experience runs all year round, offering you the chance to peep into the city’s past and explore the haunted tombs underneath London Bridge, but this Halloween, the attraction’s special event is sure to terrify even the most hardcore horror fans so book your train to London today.
Take a train to… Halloween Fest in Newcastle
Formerly known as Ghost Fest, this is a truly spectacular celebration of the macabre that’s now in its fifth year. A whole host of horrifying events are planned for throughout Newcastle, including haunted overnight sleepovers, spooky tours of the Newcastle Castle keep, ghostly pub tours and even a night of mediumship, although much of the fun is centred on the beautifully creepy Newcastle Castle keep.
Over 3000 people risked the fright of their life at last year’s celebrations, so if you’re ready to put your money where your mouth is at Halloween Fest, book trains to Newcastle and start practising your poker face.
Take a train to… Whitby’s Dracula at Night
Dracula is the granddaddy of many of todays less impressive fanged baddies, so sink your teeth into a wonderful performance of Bram Stoker’s classic Victorian gothic tale at this special event in Whitby. The outdoor play takes place on promenade within the ruins of Whitby Abbey, which happened to be the author’s inspiration for the setting of the spooky tale.
Did you know that 2012 is also Bram Stoker’s centenary? What better time to visit Whitby and immerse yourself in an atmospheric performance of his most famous work at the family-friendly creepiness of Dracula at Night.
Take a train to… Hallowscream at York Maze
During the rest of the year, York Maze is a peaceful and entertaining tourist attraction, but when late October rolls around, it is transformed into the kind of place you might find in your deepest, darkest nightmare. For six nights only, the Maze will scare your socks off as it turns to the dark side, so book early to avoid missing out and jump on a train to York for this unique experience – It’s an especially scary night fun gory fun for teenagers and adults who like a good scream.
And finally, to help get you in the spooky spirit, we’ve put together an hour of Halloween classics to help you get grooving on your way to our favourite Halloween hotspots this year…
