As Halloween is one of the best holidays for little ones with all the funny preparations and celebrations, make sure you know what's on this November in London to make kid's eyes sparkle even brighter. Fancy dress, face paint, pumpkins and lots of treat are waiting for youк family at these spooky, but funny, events in London.

You will find out how slimy troll snot, dribbling drool (of the three-headed dog variety) and silvery unicorn blood was created for the Harry Potter film series.
Hogwarts’ Great Hall will be decorated as it was for the Halloween feast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. At the Great Hall you will also discover the ghost costumes of Nearly Headless Nick, Moaning Myrtle and the Slytherin House ghost: the Bloody Baron.
And finally those who are brave enough to go down Diagon Alley on Halloween will find themselves under attack from Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters. So the wand combat lesson might come in handy ;)
