While it may not feel like it due to the heatwave that has seen the capital reach over 30C this week, autumn is almost upon us, and that means Halloween is just around the corner.

Over the next few months, there’s sure to be a whole host of activities and events for Halloweeners to get into the spooky spirit. From ghostly parties to spine-chilling exhibitions, there will no doubt be celebrations across the capital.

This week, Halloween festivities were believed to have started early in the capital after a TikTok claimed a Salem Witch Museum had opened in London. In the five-second clip, a series of witchy signs were shown as a voiceover was heard saying: "Salem Witch Museum now in London UK."

Since being posted on Thursday (September 7), the post has caught the attention of Halloween fans across the country. It has amassed almost 200,000 views with over 10,000 likes just a day after it was posted.

Unfortunately, London does not appear to actually have a Salem Witch Museum. Instead, the one featured in the viral video seems to actually be in Salem, Massachusetts, in the US.

For those still looking for something Witchy-themed to do this autumn in London, here are some things to check out over the next month.
