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

The name London Dungeon would sound scary to all , but the attraction is anything but scary. A bit stuffy in there , but the actors are brilliant. Go there not expecting any horror or torture shows. Just plain entertainment, No problem for the kids also. You would be disappointed if you wanted to be scared.

Includes a roller coaster ride and very nice stops along the way with very cool shows to scare you. They take volunteers from the crowd. before the end is another small and not scary small free fall ride. All of these rides are suitable for scaredy people. Overall highly recommended. There is a line to get in but its not... More

Went with my son who is 17. I was a bit nervous before hand, but we both though it was scary enough without being too scary, however I wouldn't recommend anybody young than a teenager to go. My 8 year old would have found it too scary. At times it is in complete darkness. I thought for 1 1/2 hours... More

You want it to be like a big Chamber of Horrors! You want it to be scary! But what you get instead is a tacky out-dated place that smells damp. The models are very low budget, nowhere near as good as Madame Tussaud's, and the place has absolutely no educational or historical value. For goodness sake Merlin Entertainment, for the... More

Very nice show. Worthy to pay a visit. It's something different. It is something that you don't see every day. We enjoyed very much!

Went with friends, one of whom was really nervous about the whole thing. Educational, fun, scary in a ghost train/ make you jump kind of way but nothing for anyone to worry about. One of the rides wasn't working but we weren't bothered and they gave us some vouchers if we wanted to return another day.

My kid liked it a lot, but as English is not her maternal language she struggled a bit with understanding. She speaks very good English, but English that actors speak is a bit unusual and I also struggled a bit. Otherwise, it was lot of fun!
