Halloween is a haunting tradition celebrated by people all over the world. Every year on the 31st October revellers participate in lots of fun activities and events. These include guising (also known as trick or treating), watching horror movies and carving pumpkins. The tradition is believed to have originated in Ireland, where the Celtics celebrated Samhain. Samhain was a Gaelic festival held after harvest. It honoured the souls of the dead. This was believed to ward off bad luck.

Some places in London are notorious for strange occurrences and mysterious happenings that cannot be explained. These places are home to famous spirits, murders and troubled souls.

One of the most terrifying places to visit is the Tower of London which is a hotbed of paranormal activity. The ghosts of Anne Boleyn, along with Lady Jane Grey are said to haunt the tower courtyard. There are thousands of other ghost stories which have hailed from the English capital. One of which is the story of the crazed old woman who runs through the graves and tombs of Highgate Cemetery. She is aparently looking for the children she murdered but are you brave enough to see for yourself?

There are a number of airports in London but London City (EGLC, LCY) is the closest airport to central London. Crew must be specifically trained to land at London City so not all private jet operators are able to use this airport. For airports solely dedicated to private jet flights, Farnborough (EGLF, FAB) and Biggin Hill (EGKB, BQH) are great alternatives. Luton (EGGW, LTN) and Stansted (EGSS, STN) are also a popular choice.
