Local resident Siwan Hill is 249 years old and has lived in Hampstead since it was (mostly) just fields. She kindly takes it upon herself to produce the Hampstead Halloween pub tour each year in order to ensure a fresh supply of meat for the horned god. For legend hath it if his infernal majesty is not supplied with an annual victim then the blue plaques will leave Hampstead and the house prices will tumble...
As Halloween is getting closer and lots of you quite understandably have contacted us for more information on the Halloween pub tour. If you do drop us a query we will always take trouble to respond but here are the answers to a few of the frequently asked questions.....
is the route the same as previous years?
NO. Although we do keep a few old favourites, the route, the stories and starting point Change each year, so please read the ticket information to make sure you don't turn up at the wrong place!
(Although if you do we will obviously do our best to try and catch you to the rest of the group.)
is it dog friendly?
YES. we love a well behaved dog.
It is a walk after all, and all of the pubs we visit have gardens, although you may want to keep your pooch on a lead if their excitable, as we do walk across part of Hampstead heath in the dark and we also have actors popping up and doing spooky things at various points along the route.
Can i bring my teenager?
16 and 17 year olds are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
What should i wear?
It is Halloween so please feel free to fancy dress your heart out, however do bear in mind you are going for a walk in England in October: The weather as we all know can be quite unpredicable, so Please wear comfortable shoes and either bring a jacket or get some layers on under that costume!
if I've booked but cannot attend can I get a refund?
We will refund you if cancel a booking on up to 48 hours prior to the scheduled time of the event.
If you need to cancel a booking at less than 48 hours before the event date, you will not be entitled to reimbursement. However the booking may be transferred to the next suitable date, or to another person at no additional cost (e.g. you may find a friend to take your place on the experience and ask them for the money).

A few of you lovely people have messaged us in the last couple of days to ask whether we will be doing Halloween this year, the answer is YES! Of course! Absolutely! We have been a little bit slow off the mark this time, but I can promise you we are working very hard to bring you a fabulous tour for this year, there will be some old favourites and some bits which are brand new, watch this space for further details.....
