There are certain events in London that can’t be missed. Halloween, a bit of an American import, gets more and more popular every year and there’s a diverse range of events to enjoy each time it comes around.
2016 is no different, and some of the city’s best hotels are making an effort to deliver a spooky time for their guests and the public. Try one of these treats for a clever London trick this Halloween…
A Frightfully Good Package at The Montcalm
Montcalm’s hotels, including The Montcalm at the Brewery, Montcalm Marble Arch and M by Montcalm are offering a frightfully good Halloween package to brighten up your autumn days.
From now until October 31st 2016, you can enjoy their seasonal package, which differs slightly at each hotel. At M by Montcalm, your room comes complete with apple and toffee popcorn. At The Montcalm Marble Arch, you get a Halloween cupcake and drink. At The Brewery, you’ll receive cupcakes and a bottle of red wine. Guests also get accommodation in a Club room or higher, English breakfast, and access to the gym and pool.
Spooky Afternoon Tea at The Lancaster
Lancaster London’s ARTea afternoon tea usually has a menu and presentation inspired by art. It’s becoming decidedly spookier for Halloween, with treats inspired by the event.
The menu will be available between October 17th and 31st 2016 with spider web lollies, Frankenstein’s monster macaroons and bloodied finger éclairs. Scones will be pumpkin flavoured with blood orange marmalade. Savoury treats include cucumber coffins and devilled chorizo tartlets.
Paint The Scream at The Trafalgar Hotel
For something a little different, how about an evening of wine and painting? Take up the challenge to paint Edvard Munch’s famous painting The Scream with PopUp Painting at The Trafalgar Hotel on October 29th.
The experience includes art supplies, a themed playlist, a glass of wine (you can buy more, of course) and an artist facilitator to guide you. You don’t have to follow along – you can paint whatever you like if you’re not feeling the anguish of The Scream.
There’s a diverse range of things to do in London this Halloween, both at the city’s hotels and elsewhere. Why not make plans for some spooky fun?
