The London Town update is similar to the Paris Town update, and allows players to complete new London deliveries at their airport by loading cargo planes with the required objects.
As players complete these deliveries, they’ll receive special British-themed building materials, which can only be earned from these deliveries.
These British-themed building materials are used to construct London Town residential zones. Each of these zones houses 15 percent more Sims than basic residential zones, with each zone supporting a maximum population of 2,111 Sims. These zones also require twice as many services as normal residential zones.
In addition to these new homes, players can construct three new London-themed buildings in their city. One, the London Bus Terminal, costs five Keys to build, and adds double-decker buses to players’ streets.
The other items are the Globe Theatre entertainment building and the Big Ben landmark, which are both available to purchase with Keys. All three buildings are unlocked for purchase as players construct the required number of London residential zones in their town.
In addition to this London Town update, SimCity BuildIt has also been updated with 25 percent more land available for expansion.
Halloween – an opportunity to get dressed up in crazy outfits, slap on loads of makeup and drink weirdly wonderful concoctions. And while this sounds like the average night out for an 18 year old, the difference is that during Halloween it’s all ghoulishly themed!
TRICK AND TREAT WITH HOME HOUSE THIS HALLOWEEN
There’s nothing like themed canapés and cocktails to get us into the creepy Halloween mood, and this year private Marylebone-based club Home House have outdone themselves with a selection that combine classic ingredients with more, er, inventive offerings. Choose the safety options of Smashing Pumpkin Fizz (including vodka, pear liqueur and pumpkin syrup) with Devils on Horseback, or pluck up the courage for Spiced Squid Tentacles & Smoked Paprika – they’re still frightfully tasty. We can’t wait to try the Halloween’s Queen Punch –a sharing sip that combines Woodford Reserve with the likes of brandy, pumpkin puree and pear cider.
ENJOY A NIGHT WITH THE UNDEAD AT K WEST HOTEL
For an immersive experience to remember this Halloween, check into London’s only zombie hotel and enjoy a plethora of themed fun that might have you going bump in the night. The staff at K West Hotel in Shepherds Bush will, for one day only on 31st October, be transformed with ghoulish makeovers . Cue spine-tingling spirits that have been mixed into delicious cocktails, zombie massages, revived-corpse manicures, and guestrooms available from £185.00 per night including breakfast. Stay the night if you dare!
DASTARDLY DIM SUM AT ROYAL CHINA
Royal China Baker Street has created autumnal ‘mini pumpkin’ dim sum, perfect for Halloween celebrations. The delicate pumpkin shaped Sticky Rice Dumplings filled with Purple Sweet Potato, are available from now until 30 November 2015, and are far easier to polish off than the real thing.

RAISE THE DEAD AT BARRIO CENTRAL
Anyone who has visited the Barrio Central Bars in Shoreditch or Angel will know the colourful interiors are a nod to their Mexican roots. Well, they’re taking this a step further this Halloween by throwing two devilishly delightful parties to celebrate Day of the Dead. Their usually vibrant interiors will be turned into creepy cemeteries, there will be DJs spinning spooky tunes, and face painters will be on hand to give you a sugar skull makeover. Plus they’ve got a special cocktail on the menu – Flight of the Pumpkin, which contains Tequila, Spiced Pumpkin, lime and egg white.@BarrioBars
AND ONE MORE CREEPY COCKTAIL…
South London gets seriously spooky as The Exhibit in Balham serves a spiked concoction called Poisoned Apple especially for Halloween. Made from Jägermeister, Chambord, lime, apple, juice and fresh mint, the laced liquid is topped with absinthe foam and accompanied by a half-bitten apple. Served deadly cold, just one is all that’s needed to send drinkers into an eternal sleep. A perfect excuse as to why you can’t remember anything the next day…@TheExhibit
