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.

Had a blast this morning with my mum and sister, travelled to London to see a show and soak up some of the sights which included a visit to the London Dungeon. We arrived at 09:45am and made the first queue, I wasn't completely sure what was in store but I do enjoy history so was hoping for a 'bloody'... More

The actors did an amazing job recreating the characters from the past. It got a little scary at times but it was fun too! I especially liked the judge as he was really funny. Recommended!

Even before we had gone through the door the jester had us entertained and was hilariously rude and bonkers, my 10 year old son found him hilarious and that is no easy feat with a pre teen let me tell you. From then on in the whole experience was a realistic yet comical trip through horrible histories whereby I actually... More

I was not expecting this at all. Everything was awesome. The whole experience was fun and scary. It is one of the best things that London has to offer.. All the actors were great and really interesting.. They knew how to portray their characters. If you go there you might get a bit splashed.. Nothing much.. But I advise you... More

I enjoyed my trip to the London Dungeons, I thought it was a fun and interesting afternoon out. I think it was missing a few elements as it was mainly about interacting with the actors, it would have been good to see and be able to hold some replicas of the torture instruments. Also I know you could buy photos... More

Great afternoon out. The actors were brilliant and funny and it was very informative of London's history but I felt it was about half hour too long and couldn't wait to get out in the end. It took around 2 hrs in all.

It was a great tour in the dungeon. Not only imparted a great deal of knowledge about the British history was also remarkably funny and well scripted / acted.

I am a massive fan of the Dungeons in general, they are fantastic days out. My favourite are the Edinburgh Dungeons (maybe bias as I'm Scottish) but they are fabulous. The London Dungeons are great. Everything you'd expect from the Dungeons (if you've been to any of the others you know they do follow a format). Fun and thrills. However,... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
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.
