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

The actors try hard, but I expected some historical items on display as the old dungeons had. Includes a little boat ride, be warned you may get very wet, as I did. Its not cheap, but I suppose its London, as hence the prices.

The queue was ridiculous as was the price. Although the actual experience was ok it's a bit too scary for the kids but educational.

This was an excellent experience, but I would not recommend for most kids under 12 yrs. It was entertaining, educational, and a little scary at the same time and my teenager thoroughly enjoyed it.

Couple of rides one of which was out of order.. As an attraction not for young children one was on our tour approx 6-7 years old that had a terrifying visit! Not... More

The actors' witty narration is guaranteed to make you smile while keeping you constantly on edge.The london dungeon also involves a couple of rides which give a fun twist to this attraction. Definitely a must-do while in London , with regard to price I strongly recommend purchasing... More

It tells you a bit of history on London, Jack the Ripper, the plague, etc. It has two rides, so pretty cool. Staff did an amazing job!! Loved it, there's some scary bits, so small kids or scared adults; be aware!

Okay, wasn't sure what to expect and only went as Son wanted a laugh. Had two for one voucher too so happy to try it. Arrived early which is best as its very popular.
