Fun Halloween activities in and around Covent Garden.

Halloween Trick or Treat Trail

Free spooky family friendly trail

Halloween is a great time of year for children to dress up and eat copious amounts of naughty treats! This year I have put together a FREE family friendly ‘Halloween Trick or Treat Trail’ which will take you on a journey in and around Covent Garden. Along the way you will explore areas of Covent Garden you may never have been to before, as well as testing your observation skills and learning some fun ‘spooky’ facts…But best of all, you will bag yourself some awesome treats from these fang-tastic contributors:

All you need to do is download the trail and head to Covent Garden any day in October. The trail is absolutely best to follow when printed out, however, you can read it on a smart device should (like me) your printer rarely have ink!

Check out the back page of the trail for more information (trail duration, treat offers, step free access), as well as details for the super awesome Halloween trail photo competition.

By downloading and completing the trail, you agree to the terms and conditions set out HERE.

Pumpkin Carving

Wands & Wizard Exploratorium

Pumpkin carving at the Wands & Wizard Exploratorium is brilliant for two reasons: The staff are wonderful and the pumpkins are pre-shelled and ready to carve!

Everything you need is supplied, you just turn up, pick a pumpkin and get served a delicious drink as part of your booking.

I went with my toddler, and together (mainly me) we created this masterpiece…


  • Kids menu: Child friendly drink as part of the booking.
  • Highchair / Baby change: No
  • Pushchair space: Yes, but limited.
  • Access: One step on entry. Then very tight twisty stairs up to the carving room. The staff are more than happy to help carry bits up for you.


Below is a photo of my daughters first ever Halloween. She was dressed as a pumpkin while sat with Europe’s largest pumpkin, which was in Covent Garden. I can’t wait to see your photos taken during the Halloween trail!

Have fun!
