It’s almost Halloween! Although Europeans don’t celebrate Halloween like United States, that doesn’t mean that it’s not a great place to be on October 31st.
If you’re looking to do something different for Halloween, we’ve put together a list of the best things to do around Europe on the night of living dead.
No trick-or-treating, we want the good stuff: parties and special events!
Are you ready to discover them with us? Read on!
1. “Nottingham Ghost Walk” in Nottingham (England)
There’s a walking tour every Saturday at 7pm to discover the city’s terrifying past! The psychic medium, Jenny Cross, started offering these tours in 1993 when she started detecting ghostly and paranormal activity around Nottingham.
The Nottingham Ghost Walk Tour goes around different areas of the city, including the Nottingham castle, Belvoir castle and Newstead Abbey. These are all places where Jenny has felt the presence of ghosts.
This spooky tour lasts 90 minutes and costs £15 for a family package – 2 adults and 2 children.
2. “Spirits of Meath” in Meath (Ireland)
They say that Halloween started in Meath. In fact, Samhain is a 2,000 year old Celtic festival and is very much like our modern Halloween.
If you’re travelling to Meath between October 6 and November 4, you’ll be able to join the pumpkin carving contests, take a stroll around the “Happy hotel” or listen to all sorts of horror tales. The Spirits of Meath are waiting for you!
