Owner description: 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.

We were herded around like cattle. Shoved in rooms like sardines ruining the whole experience. Rude front of house staff and really not worth the money. I complained at the time of the visit and was told my comments would be taken 'on board.' Also you are told the cheapest tickets are online, however we found much cheaper ones on... More

Always remember visiting the London Dungeon as a kid and thought it was brilliant back then, so was looking forward to doing it again on a day out in the city. Yes the queues are big, but you'd expect that for such a high profile attraction next to the London Eye and although annoying, thats not really the problem. Put... More

Paid for the two advertised rides, only one was working. No refund, no explanation. Half the "fun" for twice the price! 'Nuff said.

Visited as have heard good & bad about this venue. Your taken round in very large groups so sometime even seeing anything that is happening is hard. The water ride is pointless considering how wet you get from it. Not scary at all. The venue was tremendously hot and uncomfortable. Very very expensive for what it is. I wouldn't visit... More

The London Dungeon is located close to the London Eye. Best to book online to save a few pounds. Tour lasts about an hour as you walk/ride through "dungeon" points where live actors give a depiction of English gruesome history. Nicely done! At various points, they shut off all the lights, leaving you in the dark to grapple your way.... More

Very informative, good fun and entertaining, not too dear but not on the same tracks as all the other attractions in London.

The staff do their damndest to make this a fun and enjoyable experience. But there really isn't much too it. you get shown through the attraction in large groups so you need sharp elbows in order to be able to see sometimes. Most of the "stops" on the tour through are very light on content or amusement. A couple of... More
