HALLOWEEN BOAT RIDE INTO HAUNTED TUNNEL
Saturday 30th – Sunday 31st October 2010
12-13 New Wharf Road
London N1 9RT
The Annual Halloween boat ride is a unique trip through the haunted Islington Tunnel on board one of London's community narrow boats specially decorated for the occasion with a friendly witch amongst the crew. Be prepared for some surprise sights in the darkness of the 191 year old tunnel! You may also meet a witch on your journey or before or after it!
Places are limited on each trip. Babies are counted even if they are carried in arms. The Canal Museum Trust sells boat trip tickets as agent for the Camden Canals and Narrow boat Association. You are advised to be at the museum at least 15 minutes before your trip - the boat cannot wait for latecomers. Kids receive sweets on board and a free glow stick.
Expect the unexpected as you look around the London Canal Museum. There will be special activities for children in the museum so make sure you allow time for these either before or after your boat trip. (Before if you are catching one of the last boats of the evening). Look out for horrible sights and listen for screams! Explore the corridor of fear Listen to horrible noises, and look out for horrible pictures in unexpected places! If you have left it too late to book for the complete event including boat trip you will still be able to visit the museum at usual museum entry charges. Advance booking is not required for a museum visit without a boat trip.
Our Ghost Story Teller will tell stories in the museum at 1630, 1730, 1830, 1930 and 2030 on both days. Each story-telling session lasts 20-25 minutes. Prepare for sinister spine-chilling tales that will make your blood curdle!
