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.

From the start it was so much fun, and the actors really interacted with you so you were apart of it! Also it is pretty scary though, especially when you're in the Sweeny... More

If you've done all the other amazing things there are to do in London and just want some silly fun, this is it. It's an amusing show that takes you through the dark history of London including the Plague, Jack the Ripper, the Gunpowder Plot and more. I would caution against bringing small children that frighten easily. Also some of... More

By far the best of the days events according to said teenager. Full of Jump scares but no touching so you didnt need to worry about being grabbed in dark, and what a lot of dark. Totally different from the Dungeons I went to as a child. More acting and participation than looking at exhibits and I rather enjoyed it.... More

This was a very fun and semi scary way to learn about the bad times the London has been through. It was well worth the money. All the actors played their parts very well and it was very interactive and fun.

I didn't find it scary at all but the girlfriend was sweating. The ride at the end was a nice addition which I didn't expect, even though heart rate was still normal.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to review us - we really appreciate it. The Dungeon is a family attraction but everyoneis different, so some find it scarier than others! Our ride can be a little surprising however, so I'm glad you enjoyed it. Many thanks, Olivia More

This show was absolutely amazing, everything I was expecting and more. The actors were fabulous and you could tell they loved their job! The whole building was decorated wonderfully right through to the end gift shop. I would definitely recommend and do it again in a heart beat :)

Started off well, considering we visited on a Saturday the queue for tickets was organised and pretty quick. Went down hill a bit once it was time for our show....long queue to get through to the start (about 30 minutes) with no entertainment or actors to keep you occupied. Once our group was in we went in a cage which... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your experience with us in the end. You're certainly right in saying that Saturdays can become very busy - we have managed to rediue queue time down from around 4 hours to no more than 45 minutes so hopefully this will keep improving....
