Possibly not an attraction to visit if you are seeking historical correctness but the rest of my family enjoyed it non the less. We were going to the London Dungeons but found they had since moved so tried these guys instead.

The London Bridge Experience was included in the London Pass, so fortunately, we didn't waste much money on it. Still, we did waste far too much time. The attraction is not very well run, and we waited in a line that didn't move for over 40 minutes, even though we were supposed to get priority admission. None of the staff... More

The kids really enjoyed it. It was an educational scare haunted house type of event that starts out with characters playing different roles and discussing the history of the bridge and all the traumatic events that occurred there over the years and ends with a haunted house type walk though attraction. It look about an hour or so and the... More

We got the London Pass (which I highly recommend), but what the pass fails to mention is that this is a horror attraction. Once we saw all the makeup and gore we tried to get out of line, but one of the workers claimed it was going to explain the "history of London." Wrong. It claims to be historical, but... More

The first section is slow going as they cramp you in a room watching a video, the wait is a bit long as is the wait in the 'museum.' Once you get past that, it does improve in sections. I do not recommend the very tightly cushioned walk through for those who are claustrophobic, or have any underlying health conditions... More

This attraction is billed as a "tongue in cheek" look at London's history. Although there was a bit of history and some of it was presented in an off beat way, the overall attraction is a glorified haunted house. There was lots of fake blood, dim lighting, and a terrible smell as a series of mediocre actors led us through... More

We had a great time with our family including 2 teenagers who were skeptical about the dungeon part of it. However, we were very entertained and had a blast in the dungeon. The actors did a nice job about telling the history of the bridge and then down to the dungeon where my 18 yr old son led the pack... More

Very well explained and as with the London Dungeon it relies on special effects and animations. For some parts which are really very tight on the body the staff are excellent in getting you around it without making it obvious and spoiling things. It was good allround fun, a little pricey but that's London. If you like being scared a... More

I 1st went here when it first opened a few years ago and agree with the other reviews that the 1st half is a little slow and just learning information, but the 2nd half was great back then i was on a date and trying to be manly and literally ran out of the end with a bloke with a... More
