History by Night

All across London, galleries, heritage sites and museums will remain open after hours throughout the dark and eerie nights spanning 27th to 29th October. You will be able to experience late-night exhibitions, themed walks, special events, and guided tours during this spooky time.

Some of the most prominent highlights include the chance to drink wine while touring the house of Dr Samuel Johnson, solving the mysteries of Charles Dickens residence at the Charles Dickens Museum, and cooking in the House of Keats during the period of Regency.

Jack the Ripper Halloween Tour

The mystery of one of the world’s most gruesome serial killers, Jack the Ripper, is a tour not to be missed. The identity of this killer still remains elusive till to this day!
