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.

Fun, but don't take the little ones

A fun, novel thing to do while in London I would have liked more history and less scare tactics but that's probably not why most people go.

Every element was excellent. The actors are all very good, especially the pie making lady (sweeny todd section) and the landlady (jack the ripper section). I did note some inaccuracy on some of the detail, but who cares when you having fun. I would definitely go again, and again, and again.

My 10 year old and I visited the London Dungeon and had a fantastic time. It was perfectly scarey and absolutely hilarious, looking forward to going back with rest of the family.

This attraction is brilliant and we would definitely recommend it. We had a two for one voucher off of a cereal packet which made it £26 for two adults which I would say makes it great value it lasted around 1.5 hours and included two rides. you are taken around into different areas and told the story of some of...

Don't visit this attraction if you want to be scared! It was more funny than scary. I recently booked tickets and was very disappointed with the whole experience. The actors were very good but surely the owners of this attraction could make it so much better. Biggest fright I got was when we paid £25.00 each to get in! I... More

Hi Clive, Thank you for taking the time to review us - I'm sorry we weren't able to scare you! We are much more of a family attraction now, so apologies if you were expecting something different. May guests do get scared, but some do find that our old venue on Tolley Street was a lot scarier, so perhaps our... More

The special effects used are very good and the story itself is very engaging, the attraction lasted around 1 1/2 hours which felt... More

This is the second time I went to the London Dungeon and I must say it was again wonderful. It was a good experience overall. Well prepared activities and information. The atmosphere was just right. I was there with some teenagers, who have had a wonderful time. One thing that I would suggest is that the actors do not talk... More

About an hour and a half of transition in 15 different rooms , each player who describes for a few minutes to London in previous centuries , the penalties for traitors , the tortures endured , and finally the experience of execution .
