Halloween Experience - London Canal Museum
Saturday 28 - 29th October
15.30-21.45pm / All ages
Why not hop on board one of Islington’s community - owned narrowboats, which will be specially decorated for Halloween. After embarkation, you’ll head off into the great unknown, immersing yourself in the darkness of the Islington Tunnel - a 194 year old passage that has plenty of spooky stories to tell (probably). Staff on board will be dressed to impress, with a ‘friendly’ witch. Don’t get too comfortable, though, who knows what’s lurking in the shadows. Book online or call.
