The all new multi-million pound attraction will bring 1000 years of authentic London history to life with a unique mix of talented live actors performing in scarily funny shows, stunning special effects, edge of your seat surprises and two exciting thrill rides. Guests will embark on a journey through a dramatic London landscape going back ten centuries. They will be guided through ghastly plague-ridden streets, witness Guy Fawkes’ dramatic plot to blow up Parliament, travel back to Jack the Ripper’s bleak Whitechapel and walk beneath London’s foreboding medieval gates. There are new shows and rides which are more dramatic and surprising than ever, new funnier scripts, more theatrical costumes and styling and more talented actors to play even more colourful villains and blaggards. « less

London Dungeon was an interesting introduction to the dark history of this city. This attraction was very precise in details and live actors and modern effects made it very interesting and entertaining.

I am traveling with two teenage boys and seeing Buckingham Palace or the Tower Bridge left them cold, they are indulging my desire to visit all the historical places, but we all thoroughly enjoyed the London Dungeon. You see actors telling you about the plague, Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper, torture, and a few other things. You travel in the... More

This wasn't a bad place to visit but not that great either! I booked tickets online but still had to queue for 35 minutes, you queue inside down a very narrow corridor that was very hot and very smelly! The areas within the attraction were done very well but some of the acting was very poor, (there was also some... More

Take the boat trip to Traitor's Gate and expect to get wet! Meet the torturer, the executioner, Guy Fawkes, Jack the Ripper, Sweeny Todd and Mrs Lovett. The actors really get into their roles and invite audience participation. Costumes and props are good. Definitely worth a visit. Buy multi attraction tickets to save money.

Hi CaseyJ2, Thanks so much for the 5 stars! Even the torturer cracked a smile at these kind words and trust me when I say this is a rarity (unless he gets to use the hot pokers). It would be great for you to come back and visit us again soon! Emma Guest Experience Manager More

Nice show and engaging actors took us true the dark side of London's history. Can be a bit scary for small children. Good location.

It was a great way to kick off our trip. Had a laugh and learned about the history of London - but in a funny/spooky sort of way. It is no Towers of London, but perfect for family fun.

We had a great time at the London Dungeon. I recommend pre-booking tickets to avoid the lines. Each of the cast members were entertaining and delivered their stories in a way that kept you entertained. We were very surprised to see young children in the dungeon, it is dark and some parts are a bit scary. Overall an excellent attraction.

Hi Janna M, Thanks so much for a cracking review! We all raised a glass to your kind words at The Ten Bells Pub last night to celebrate. It is great you found us so entertaining and overall an excellent attraction, and I hope that you come back and see some our seasonal events like Carnivale over the summer holidays.... More
