We are un-boo-lievably excited to be part of a free family-friendly Halloween Trick or Treat Trail, put together by the fang-tastic Covent Garden Mum.

The trail takes you on a journey around Covent Garden, exploring places you may never have been to before, as well as testing your observation skills and learning some fun facts. Best of all you will bag yourself some awesome treats along the way, including a free activity pack and sticker if you stop by Bow BOO Street Police Museum. Normal opening hours apply.
