Attraction details
Owner description: The London Dungeon, one of the UK’s most iconic attractions, has reinvented itself now as a bigger, bolder and better attraction in the vast underground vaults of County Hall on the South Bank, next to the EDF Energy London Eye. 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.

Cold of shown more scary charters such as what type of killing were taken place. the boat ride would have been great if it had gone abit faster and backwards. Preferred the Alton towers scare fest

The show is good but it has no difference to the Edinburgh show which makes us think it is the same everywhere. We came exited after having really enjoyed the first one and found it pretty much the same. It is excellent if you've never seen it.

long queues, took about 45 mins before we got in-we hadn't prebooked tickets, otherwise we could have gone straight in. a boat ride starts things off and then you walk from room to room with actors/actresses telling about various times and events in history, with the odd fright thrown in! There's also a ride at the end too! I enjoyed... More

The queuing system to get in is chaotic and needs set up better as the volume of people in the area is huge. The desk staff don't seem that happy hut they are efficient. The actual tour was outstanding and the actors were brilliant. Well worth the visit just need a simpler queuing system

I've been to the London dungeons a few times before when it was at its old site and it used to be good fun and very intetesting. Now they've changed the attraction so that it is pretty much the same as the Edinburgh Dungeons which I visited earlier this year (if you've been to one, you don't need to go... More
