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

I went with my friend and was a bit nervous about all the experience. But it appeared there was no need for it at all. The dungeons are set up very realistic with all the smells and damp...what was disappointing - then actors looked really bored and were saying their lines in a hurry to get rid if our group... More

Visited the dungeon with my partner and I have to say it really wasn't what I expected. Lots of queueing and it was so dark and hot. The actors were very good but It felt more like a school trip..Following the actor into a room they tell a bit of the story then on to the next room. I couldn't... More

We visited the new London dungeon today by the London eye having visited the old one by London bridge station several times and what a massive disappointment it was. In the old one you could walk around at your own pace viewing the scary wax exhibits readin about the past dark side of London, torture, murderers and the plague etc... More

Myself and my partner visited here last week ,what a complete disaster , £50 entrance fee for waiting about,a tacky embarrassing walk from room to room whilst bored 'actors' told stories?!? The london dungeons are guilty of false advertising, and the council of London City should put a stop to them ripping off tourists, this place is an embarrassment to... More

Sorry, but this was not value for money... 30 mins in a queue once your inside, then 15 mins to see the first act already started, and so it went on... If you were unlucky enough to have some manners and hang back whilst others lead with their elbows most acts had already started or nearly finished by the time... More

If you are claustrophobic, I never recommend you to go there. When I was there in summer, the weather was so hot and sticky. In the dungeon, they squeezed a group of 25 people into the lift, as sardines in a can. So, I think the performers inside the dungeon are very successful, but then again the managers should consider... More

If you buy an e-ticket do not expect to just walk in when you want. It is so busy you arrive with your e-ticket and have to queue to the get a time you can attend. You will find that you have an hour or two to kill while you wait for your slot. We arrived at 13:00 and got... More

We booked online and turned up early for our allotted time. Despite having the booking confirmation with us, we had to queue with everyone to pick up tickets. The queue was huge and we were queuing with people who were booking tickets for later in the day. This meant that we were late through no fault of our own. Once... More

Fun for all,apart from the youngest. Fun souvenir photos,great performances & story telling and the ride was brilliant, would highly recommend going but I advice you book in advance. Kids had a blast in the souvenir shop spent the last of their money before heading home.
