Halloween is on the horizon, with the annual spooky holiday falling on Monday October 31 this year.

And if you're looking for a real fright, why not take a wander around one of London's most haunted places, whether it's a haunted building, museum, or a really frightening footbridge?

Getwestlondon has gathered together a list of 14 of the most petrifying places in London for you to visit this Halloween, but remember, don't go alone!

The Viaduct Tavern

Built on the site of a former jail, this historic pub still has five of the cells visible in the basement.
