Prepare for a scare...

With October just around the corner, we thought we would have a look into a few things spooky in London and get ourselves ready for that Halloween spirit.


Thirst up, Queen of Hoxton is hosting a deadly special Dia De Los Muertos Death Day Party! Join them for a Mexican themed Day of the Dead carnival with crazy decor, spooky surprises and Grime and Bass music royalty Murlo & Slimzee. Get those sugar skulls painted on and dance the floor straight to hell. From 8pm - 3am on the 28th October from £5.00 per person. Buy tickets online for guaranteed entry on the Queen of Hoxton website. The venue is a twenty-minute walk from our apartments.

As you may already know, our luxury serviced apartments have a perfect location in London, just by Tower Hill in Whitechapel - which has it's own haunting history. Over a hundred years ago the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper stalked the East Ends streets at night. You can find yourself transported back in time and discover a murder mystery with Jack the Ripper Tours. For £10.00 per person, meet outside Exit 4 of Aldgate East Underground Station - which is conveniently just around the corner from our apartments making this a fantastic and easy choice for guests looking to get the chills one October evening. This award-winning tour is at 7pm every night - true experts, visiting murder sites and locations related to the murders and Jack the Ripper, will guide you through this terrifying atmospheric experience. Though a more expensive option, for a more special and private experience, this particular tour company even offers a private chauffeur driven tour fitting around your schedule. Book online on their website now and you definitely won't be disappointed! 


Last but not feast, a good old fashion Halloween party is taking place high up at the Sky Garden on the 27th October 6pm - 2am. Fangtastic food and drink, Djs, live music and even a complimentary drink on arrival with Early Bird tickets, all from £25.00 per person. Book online at the Sky Garden website. Dress up in your most terrifying outfit and freak the night away - they promise to be bigger and better than ever before so be prepared to be thrilled! What's even better is that Sky Garden is just a ten-minute walk from Marlyn Lodge, so our guests can easily enjoy this event. Over 18s only and ID required.
