Halloweeen is coming! Here is our advice on how to enjoy it and be safe while Trick or Treating in London
Some favourite London streets for Trick or Treating
Go early, as soon as it gets dark. The crowds quickly gather the candies and sweets go fast! Peak time is definitely 7pm. The code of conduct: knock only if the house has Halloween decorations up.
Kensington & Chelsea
Admire the spooky decorations in the following streets: The Little Boltons, Tregunter Road, Phillimore Walk, Phillimore Gardens, Upper Phillimore Gardens, Palace Gardens Terrace and Argyll Road, Victoria Road and all
the neighbouring streets.
Start at Chalcot Square where nearly every house on the square joins in on the fun. You can then walk down Chalcot Road, Fitzroy Road and the surrounding neighbourhood streets.
Families enjoy trick or treating along Park Road, Chester Row and Chester Square, St. Michael’s Church and Stavely Road.
St John’s Wood
Go to Carlton Hill, Clifton Hill, Loudon Road and Springfield Road.
Hamilton Terrace (Maida Vale)
Big houses on both sides of the road, with incredible decorations.

Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe
• Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colours
• Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision
• Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers
• When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls
• Write your phone number on a child’s wrist, so people can contact you if your child got lost
Drive Extra Safely on Halloween
• Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighbourhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and
may move in unpredictable ways
• Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs
• Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5pm to 7 pm so be especially alert for kids during those hours
