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.

Very Enjoyable.

All in all a great day out, we had a lot of fun. Did jump but was not too scary. Enjoyed the rides too.

A superb couple of hours on a wintery Sunday afternoon. Our family included grandchildren aged 4, 6 and 7. We noticed a sign stating no un-accompanied children under 12 years but decided to go nevertheless. Our 4 year old grandson did not like it and I would really recommend not taking children so young, but the other two were very... More

Even though we purchased the tickets on line we still had to wait in massive queues at both the London Dungeon and again at Madame Tussauds - very poor service

Well worth the money for the one and a half hours in there. Brilliant atmosphere, brilliant actors, well organised, funny but not too scary just makes you jump. Would highly recommend.

Came down to London to visit the dungeons and we weren't disappointed. The stories are gruesome, the actors are fab and there are quite a few frights! Some rooms I'd say aren't suitable for young children, even though there were quite a few kids there. We had a fab time and would thoroughly recommend.

To be fair, this does indeed have 'Tourist Trap' written throughout its foundations; a promiment location? Check. Promise of a theatrical ghoulish experience? Check. Queues a plenty? Check, check, check. However, if you can turn a blind eye to the corporate nature of the place, you can have an enjoyable time. The actors do really well considering their limited material,... More

absolutely brilliant 90 mins.. Actors stayed in character throughout.. Great history lesson on London gone by and with fun and scary moments thrown in..Maybe a little too much for ages 8 and under as quite dark and sinister in parts. Very hot as under ground so take plenty of water and a hand fan..Greta little touch at the end when... More

London Dungeons was the perfect family outing for the seven of us, aged 17-50! The actors and stories, interactivity and ambience fully exceeded and trumped expectations.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
