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.

History at its best by actors. I enjoyed Jack the Ripper the best. The actor are dressed in the period and scared me more than once. The boat was out of commission, but the whole experience was terrific.

Used my Clubcard vouchers. make sure you actually have the vouchers as they don't accept confirmation codes. Went in a party of 4 adults and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. All the staff and actors were helpful and enthusiastic throughout. Lots of funny moments and surprises to be had - just don't go through a door first! The timeline with Jack... More

We all really enjoyed our visit. The actors were brilliant and the tour was well organised and you learnt a lot about the history of London. We booked our tickets online so got them discounted and felt the price was good value. The rides were good and the children and adults really laughed and were scared at some things but... More

I remember loving this as a kid - real people chained up in the wet and dark, clanging and moaning and smelly. I was totally enthralled. What happened?! This is more like puppetry while you shuffle along a dusty corridor.

I had visited the old London Dungeons many years ago, so in the back of my mind I couldn't help making comparisons. We booked our tickets online the day before and made huge savings this way (highly recommend doing this). All the staff were great and showed a lot of enthusiasm for their job without being annoying about it. There... More

Had an absolute blast, great mix of scares, humour and education. Wouldn't recommend it for those under 10yr old though, as it's a bit adult of nature.

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.
