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.

Group sizes are understandably large, which creates a less thrilling experience, although this volume size is a given in London, I don't think it helps the attraction in anyway, for me, however, the biggest issue was the number of young children in the dungeons, who naturally, had varied reactions to the attraction. I do think the dungeons can easily be... More

If the whole purpose of the dungeon is to scare you, they pretty much failed miserably. The lack of actors committing jumpscares make this attraction pretty boring. I was only scared at one point at the attraction, and I get scared at pretty much anything! It is made up of two rides and actors leading you through dark corridors while... More

I prefer the old venue and there was more horror exhibits in the older place. It is incredibly over priced for what you are getting, 2for 1 is the best option when visiting the attractions. The rides are good, and the section about the plague was very good.

Hi holly74limerick, I'm sorry to read you didn't enjoy your visit to our new venue. We have changed quite a lot since our time at Tooley Street so apologies if we're no longer the type of attraction you enjoy. Many thanks, Olivia More

Had a brilliant time. Took my 1 and 3 year old and they both lived it, apart from the baby falling asleep. Would definitely recommend it to all.

Two adults and two teenagers and we absolutely loved it. So well done with great actors throughout. Never stopped screaming and jumping. Worth every penny. We pre-booked and went in at 11am, no queues, but when we came out it was chaos, so I would recommend avoiding the lunchtime period.

We went in with a '2 for 1' deal - I'm not sure on how this would stacked up for value otherwise. Minimal queue despite the crowds in the vicinity which was great. It was an interesting tour with variety and my 12 year old girl loved it and wants to go back. That said, I wouldn't say it would... More

Too much talking, not scary, you won't learn anything because the actors talk fast and strict. No age restriction for little kids. Only the 2 rides are okeish. Waste of money. Boo.

We are an actor-led tour with actors delivering scripts about various events in history - apologies if you were expecting something else.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
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.
