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.

In the old days the London Dungeon was more of a show of exhibits, now it is a history tour through Olde England. It's ok, kids seem to find it a passable way to spend time, but it is expensive and does drapg on over the couple of hours you get shephereded from one set scene to another. OK if... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write us a Trip Advisor review. You're right in saying that the London Dungeon has changed quite a lot since it's time on Tooley Street. When we moved over to Southbank 2 years ago, we decided to make the attraction more of a theatrical experience as opposed to a museum, so... More

Visited here today with my boyfriend and have to say it was totally worth the money. The actors are great and activities so so good. We found the riverboat ride very amusing however slightly scary, you spend some of it in the pitch black and get splashed by water whilst being hitched up and sent backwards, you need to experience...

The London Dungeon is fun, live entertainment, but one ride (Traitor's Gate, featuring Henry VIII) was still undergoing maintenance when we were there, which was disappointing. Also, because most stops along the "journey" are standing only, it's hard to see what's going on if you end up stuck at the back (or are vertically challenged!).

Had a fantastic time at the London dungeons. We turned up around 1 and didn't have to wait at all. We were just in time for the 1pm showing. We also used a Sun 241 voucher which meant for the two of us it cost just £25. Which looking back was definetely worth the money! Both of us were pretty... More

Hi there, I'm glad that you all had a fantastic time visiting us. I'm sorry that you felt that the actors were beginning their shows before the whole group had entered and that you were missing out. All our actors are trained to start interacting with guests until all of the group are together and then begin their show, but... More

Having visited Blackpool & Warwick dungeons my expectations were very high for the London dungeons. Entry was very quick with a 'tour' being avaliable straight away. All the actors, costumes, scenery, sections and theming were brilliant. The boat ride scared the living daylights out of me! The drop ride was great. Only downside was the group size. Some sections were... More

I have been 3 of the dungeons in the U.K. So far & this one is the best! With 18 rooms and fantastic actors really is worth a visit! The only downside I would say is that the group we were in was a bit too big, there was at least 25 of us & in some of the rooms... More

I appreciate it is hard to turn an old building into a cutting edge attraction (with building regulations etc) but i found the experience disappointing.

I came on an extremely busy day (must have been school holidays) it was really busy and we had to wait a few hours before the tour started and this was with priority! It was definitely worth the wait! I found it exciting, scary and interesting! Would recommend anyone to go!!
