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. « less

It was alright, but I think this just isn't my type of thing. Every single one of the actors were brilliant and I did enjoy myself but I don't think it was anything too special. We were left in the mirrored room far too long and we all got bored and annoyed. Then when it came to the last ride,... More

The London Dungeon dropped alot of the horror it was famous for when it relocated last year, becoming more focused on humour and family entertainment. However the halloween season has provided a creepy seasonal makeover and a little more horror and jump-out-of-your-skin moments. From the creepy pumpkins to the Master of tricks preshow to the trick or treat cards being... More

Very entertaining and educational. Had to queue a bit to get in, even though we pre-booked, but worth it. Costumes and story telling was very good. It was very dark at times which some people might find frightening. Overall a good experience.

We had a terrible visit with incorrect information given on the phone, unclear queuing, rude staff and rushed tours with too many people that we missed some of the 'acts'. It frankly ruined our day! However, after complaining via email, they seemed to be very genuine and took on board my points and took the complaint seriously and compensated us... More

ok, I didn't go there on my free will, it was my son's dream to visit there and they didn't let him since he was under 14 so I had to go too. They put lots of efforts in this place, good actors, good costumes. My son loved it.

My fiancé and I booked the dungeons for our one year together. It was originally booked for the Friday, but because of traffic and coming to kent, we missed our slot and unfortunately it was the last one before they closed for the day. I worried that we would have lost the money and would have to pay again to... More

Oh why oh why didnt I read the reviews before i took the family to this 'attraction" This is essentially a phantomime but isnt advertised as one. We arrived and went straight thru. You are groped with up to 40 odd people and taken thru various rooms and "actors" perform At times I even felt embarrassed for them as it... More

Great fun whilst also being educational. Worth every penny. The staff were brilliant and clearly passionate about the characters they played.
