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

We really enjoyed our visit to London Dungeon. So funny and scary and really well done. Excellent the way it is all laid out. Wont spoil it and tell you about what happens in it but you will definitely come out of the London Dungeon with very happy, fun memories. My 11 year old son absolutely loved our visit to... More

I've been here previously when it was at London Bridge and have to say I thought this new version was much better. I've read other peoples reviews on here and think maybe we were lucky and had good actors but I also think you have to have a fun sense of humour and not take it all too seriously to... More

visited summer 2013, just after it being relocated, luckily we had priority passes (from going on big bus tour) so our queue was less than others, though we did have to wait 1+ hours in the queue....entertainers were good indoors in the waiting line, though we waited for a long time in a very exciting dungeon line inside which one...

Was worth the money as takes longer to get around. Prefer the old one better, including the rides, although hanging one still there. The old one had staff scaring you as you went around; had more cobbled streets etc; the old one had more of at atmosphere. The boat ride was just 5 minutes in the dark, didn't see the... More

I remember going to here when it was in London Bridge, probably about 6 or so years ago, with my then boyfriend. We had a great laugh and good day out. I thought that this would be good for a new date, who doesn't live in London. I was a bit disappointed - it just didn't feel as good as... More

Avoid this place... nothing like it was since they relocated it and probably had to alter the whole experience due to H&S rules etc. You were herded from dark room to dark room like cattle with very little to look at and forced to listen to a small cast of actors doubling up in various historic roles "telling you a...

This visit was much better than our first which was not scary. This time it was on the edge of my seat! I guess it depends on which actors you get but it is a fun way of learning some history. My daughter, who is 11, loves it there, hence this being our 3rd visit in 2 years. OK for... More

I was really looking forward to this attraction but was a little disappointed. It's basically a lot of story telling about infamous events in London's history told by actors dressed in period costume. There is small water ride at the beginning of the ride but it's pretty brief and doesn't really do much. The experience dragged for me and I... More
