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 live in London and so when a friend out of town said about it I agreed to go with them. Best decision I made, the staff are friendly and engaging with every one that comes though the doors. The acting is amazing as well as fact filled as you are guided around, and the ride rock!!! Go there ...... More

Nothing like the old one, where you actually learnt loads of stuff. In this I felt the groups too large. Loads of really upset, very young kids. Don't understand why people would take kids that age here? People talking over the actors etc. One of our rides (the one in the boat) broke down so we had to miss that... More

Loved it! Probably the scariest parts are Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd when it goes completely dark. Also the stench of the place was absolutely horrible but spot on lol Only negative was I have a absolutely severe fear of heights. The long drop really left me leaving very shaken and not in a good way. Would of been... More

Not sure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. The new venue is much better than the old one, and the 'actors' were all great fun. Educational and fun. Would be very expensive if we hadn't used the 2-for-1 vouchers.

Wow what a day. The people working there really acted their parts well. The boat ride spooked me as did many other things. Although very different from how it used to be as now you are taken on a tour of it for an hour and a half it was very well done. I didn't learn anything but that's because... More

Took my six year old daughter and was apprehensive but what an amazing attraction. The actors were all great and really brought the stories to life. There was the right balance of gore and fun, it really was worth the cost (which is high I know) but I felt it delivered what it promised. We booked a slot and I'd... More

Having been to the london bridge experience last year, this year we thought we do the dungeons with our twin teenage daughters, what a disappointment. My girls came out saying was that it?! felt very let down, the characters were not in character enough for me, Was a bit like an expensive interactive history lesson when we had gone for... More

Haven't been to anything like this before, I found it very entertaining and actually at the grand old age of .. I thought I learnt quite a lot! My 2 children (8&9) with me loved it and even got involved in places, great acting by the actors who perform, I had no idea what to expect so was very pleased.... More

Amazing effects, Well organised. A few screams a long the way . The actors were convincing in character. My favourites were the pub with Jack the ripper and the long drop at the end

We booked online for a timeslot.which was good no handing around but inside we were going from room to room and it didn't really flow We spent 90 mins going through history but they could make it flow a little faster instead of waiting around. A good attraction worth a visit.
