This Halloween, Manchester is overrun with spooky creatures of all shapes and sizes, and visitors to Manchester city centre are bound to bump into a ghoul or two! So if you’re coming to the city and will be staying in an aparthotel, be prepared to ward off a few vampires and zombies, as Halloween is packed with terrifying events across the city. With something spooky for everyone to enjoy, it makes a trip to Manchester the number one must-do of your list of things to keep both older kids and little ones happily entertained this autumn.
Spooky thrills by your accommodation
As the days get shorter and the nights grow long, it’s time to embrace the dark side and discover a creepier side to Manchester. This Halloween there are many events taking place right in the city centre, so you won’t need to risk the terror and travel too far from the safe and comfortable confines of your accommodation!
Dress up in your Halloween finery for the Halloween Family Night on 25th October, where kids of all ages can enjoy getting messy with zombies, mummies, vampire and werewolves. Let their creativity run loose, as they come up with the most imaginative costumes. If you’ve got a bundle of energy on your hands, the Zombie Charity Walk will be extra fun – taking place across the city centre, put on your best zombie act and terrify the locals. Or if you want to catch up on some really spooky storytelling, head across the road from your apartment to check out the city’s Spooky Tales event, where classic horror stories are brought to life!
Have a Freaky Halloween
Ghosts, ghouls and monsters across Manchester city centre
Grown ups can get in on the action too, this Halloween in Manchester, and there are plenty of things to keep you entertained and terrified, while you visit the city in this spooky month. Warm up with a classic Zombie movie at the Chinese art centre, before heading over to the Spook Manor, to unravel a scary story, live in a haunted Victorian Manor.
If you’re a fan of interactive experiences, then the Manchester Murder Mysteries will definitely appeal – right in the centre of Manchester a short distance away from your aparthotel, is a classic historic murder scene. The question is, who did it? Get your sleuthing skills sharpened up for the night. Then after a hard evening’s work of crime solving, you can let your hair down, Halloween style, in one of Manchester’s brilliant costume balls and parties, where glammed up monsters show off their best dance moves on the floor, and you can even win a special prize for the most creative and spooky of costumes. Head to the Rocky Horror Party for camped up fun, or the Mirror Ball Halloween Spooktacular for something truly special.

Great hub. I love the jack o' lantern! I had not realized that Halloween was celebrated now in England. When I was little it was all about Guy Fawkes Day at that time of year.
