    The London Dungeon
    Stop: 110 minutes - Admission included
    The London Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back to the capital’s most perilous past. See, hear, feel and (ahem) smell the chillingly amusing characters of the ‘bad old days’ as they come to life before you. Brave the Tyrant boat ride as you journey down the Thames in the dark to meet your fate. Step inside Sweeney Todd’s infamous barber shop on Fleet Street and let him give your life a short back and sides. Then tread cautiously through the streets of Whitechapel, as Jack the Ripper could be lurking just around the corner… You probably think you’ll be safe after that but there’s also the small matter of the Plague, a vengeful Henry VIII and his Executioner and the Torturer who would really like you to talk. Then, you’ll be sentenced for your crimes (guilty of course) and sent to Newgate Prison to hang, on Drop Dead: Drop Ride. On the off chance you survive all of that, you’ll round off your journey with a visit to the Dungeon Tavern; hear the latest gossip with the locals! -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- • An unmissable live walk through experience • Full on 360 sets with gripping storytelling • 19 interactive shows, 20 live actors, 1000 years of history • State of the art theming and special effects • 2 thrilling underground rides • From Jack the Ripper to Sweeney Todd, The Plague to the Great Fire of London – it’s cutting edge storytelling at Its best! • Allow 110 minutes for this experience

Our family visited on Thursday 21st April and had a fantastic time. We booked online a few weeks ahead of time and picked the earliest time slot of 11am. As soon as the doors opened (5-10mins early) we got straight in, through a brief security check and then straight into the show which started with a boat ride through the dark. I'll not spoil it for other readers but just say that there were some fun and scary experiences to be enjoyed.

All credit due to the staff who performed brilliantly throughout, especially the Curse of the Witch, Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd scenes. A nice mix of horror, shocks, humour and good old blood n guts! Let’s not forget the smells, sounds, props and special effects along the way - again some great unexpected and surprising elements.

If English is not your first language, as was the case with many in our allotted time group, then a lot of the humour and story-telling will be lost along the way as we saw many people looking perplexed and bewildered – so perhaps investigate your options first before signing up. For myself and my family however, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and wouldn’t hesitate to repeat it. Yes, it is expensive but some things are worth paying for and I can understand where the money has been spent in this case. Make sure you book in advance to get a decent discount.

Highly recommended for a fun and memorable few hours in central London. Oh, and don't forget to visit the toilets for a few extra suprises!

Visited as a family party of two adults and a 12 year old.

We had pre-booked advance tickets for 1000hrs which was as soon as the attraction opened, and we got our tickets scanned and into the venue without too much waiting around. We were told that masks were optional although recommended and I would say that from what I could see it was a fairly equal mix amongst the customers (the staff and actors were all masked throughout the attraction).

We were split into a party of around 15 people and then, after a couple of picture that are able to be purchased at the end, taken to the first area where we got a quick briefing from the ‘Jester’. I had visited York Dungeon last year and Amsterdam around 15 years prior to that and the Dungeon’s as a group follow a similar template (and script!) of taking events and figures from an areas history and building little scenes around them, with you walking through between the performances in a linear fashion. The usual London-centric topics of Jack the Ripper and the Gunpowder Plot are represented here along with scenes recounting the story of Sweeney Todd and a bit set during the Great Fire of London. As to historical accuracy this is an entertainment venue rather than a museum so bear that in mind if that is what you are in the market for.

At certain points ‘volunteers’ are pulled out of the crowd and used to demonstrate some historical torture device or similar, this amounts to the unlucky victim being sat in front of the rest of the group and being subject to a little harmless ‘end of the pier’ type teasing humour. The dungeon itself seems larger than the York one with the theming and set design feeling like a little bit more effort has been made. There is a small drop ride, themed to a hanging, at the end of the tour but that can be skipped if you don’t want to do it or have medical issues. At the very end there is a small gift shop and a pub where you can get a drink. We were headed elsewhere so didn’t dally there long so I can’t speak for the prices there.

In terms of content it is a little gory and some of the humour and subject matter is not suitable for the really young or people of a sensitive disposition but the overall tone is campy rather than frightening. There are a fair few ‘jumpscares’ but that’s about the height of it in terms of things that will actually scare you.

I had previously visited the London Dungeon in its former location a number of years ago and remember enjoying it. As we progressed through I was attempting to work out what they had retained from before and what had changed. The main topics remain the same (Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd, etc) but the way they are presented seems to have differed, some more than others. The boat ride was closed when we went and some bits seemed as if they were still operating in ‘Covid Mode’ but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

I found the actors to be engaged and energetic, a benefit of being in the first group of admissions after opening, and I was impressed with their performances.

All of my group enjoyed the experience and I would recommend it to people who are looking for something to do with older kids or those who like this sort of thing.

My 11 and 13 year old wanted to come to this while on a family trip. One of them enjoyed this. The rest of us were not that impressed. The experience is an hour and a half and we paid £112 for 2 adults and two children.There are several rooms that you go through with different actors telling different stories. Some good actors, and some that seemed not entirely in character or in a bit of a rush or just fatigued with probably doing the same spiel multiple times a day whilst trying to churn through as many punters as possible.

For adults and children, it was sometimes difficult to comprehend what was being said by the actors or what was fact and what was fiction or in between. The whole experience needed to be grounded somehow - perhaps a guide for each group who could explain the origin of each story and the context would have helped - like a narrator or some such. I'm not sure the kids came out having learnt anything or even if they realised at the time that there was truth amongst the craziness of it all.

Even the surroundings, because of the darkness of it all, it was difficult to know if we were underground or just in a big house going through different stage-set rooms. I couldn't tell if we had actually been in a dungeon or not.

I felt the price was too much. Bearing in mind the length and quality of the experience which was shorter yet more expensive than a 3 hour high quality West End Show.

It was not an unenjoyable experience but in hindsight I think there are more enjoyable, better value experiences to have in London for those with limited time and cash.

Ahhh the Judge is intrigued by your review. Sorry to hear that the London Dungeon was not to your satisfaction. We can certainly pass your feedback to our pesky team for review. It does please us however that our labyrinth of a Dungeon did disorientate you somewhat! This may not have been the place for you, but the Torturer will always ensure that their is a place for you should you ever return 💀

A great day out for all! Without spoiling the experience by sharing too many details - there was great acting, lots of interaction with the audience, guided tour with interesting information, lots of jumps, scares, surprised and thrills, and even a couple of fun rides. I am a big fan of horror and scares etc so I thoroughly enjoyed it. It may not be everyones idea of fun and perhaps not for the faint hearted or easily scared. There were lots of families with teenagers and kids present but perhaps very young kids may scare easy during this experience. The whole experience lasted about 1hr 15mins - 1hr 30mins. There were photos taken at the start and end of the tour which were available to purchase at the end. These were a bit expensive. I purchased 3 normal sized photos and 4 keyring sized photos which came to a total of £25. There is also a gift shop after this however, I cannot comment on this as I never had time to look and I had to quickly exit to get to my next activity that I had booked. I did see a skull notebook that my mum had purchased while I was getting the photos, and she was very pleased with the quality of it.
The only criticism I would give is that I felt they put too many people into each tour group. Some of the rooms on the tour felt a little cramped with so many people in them and unfortunately this causes some very rude people to push and shove - which is not the fault of The London Dungeon. I understand they probably put so many people in a group because it is such a busy tourist attraction after all. Overall it was a very fun and exciting experience. I highly recommend trying it!

A LITTLE TIP: it really is worth booking this in advance. I believe I saw a sign to say the on the day price of the dungeon was around £50pp. I booked The London Dungeon, The London Eye and a Thames River cruise together for £53pp courtesy of lastminute.com. You can also choose flexible booking times and spread them over the next 30 days if you don’t want to do all activities on the same day!

Last went to the dungeons about 4 or 5 years ago, it’s always an enjoyable place to go but there has been very little changes since then so if you’re someone that has a good memory then I wouldn’t recommend going often!

Quick entry, thorough security, staff always seem enthusiastic and like they genuinely enjoy their job.

However it was extremely busy- the group sizes were huge, often barely fitting into the rooms and there were a few occasions that if you were near the back of the group then you couldn’t hear anything! There were times when you were more jammed in to people then if you were on the tube at peak times. There were also moments when we were just left in rooms whilst they waited for the next ones to finish and you could often hear what was happening in the room next year which sometimes ruined the vibe.

Overall, its always a fun and informative experience but it was way too busy to be as enjoyable as it could be.

I’ve been to many overpriced attractions over the years so was expecting more of the same but how I was wrong. This was excellent made more so by social distancing meaning you could see all the story tellers close up. The rooms were well put together and the actors very enthusiastic. One thing I would say is this is not for small children, we saw a few in there who were upset and I think the recommend age of 12 is very fair. I certainly wouldn’t want my 10 year old here as he would have been scared.

This experience was...lacklustre. We arrived 10 minutes early and were asked to queue, we were at the front of said queue. Yet, when we started the experience we were at the back of the previous batch. Being at the back is absolutely the worst place to be during this tour because you cannot for your life hear a word of what the actors are saying. Equally, this felt like a chicken coup in the sense that they were cramming as many people into batches as they physically could and yet had zero regards for the experience of those participating. The timed experience meant that actors often rushed their lines, to the point that it was incredibly difficult to follow what they were saying. The dodgy accents also didn't make this any easier. I think this is WHY so many people ignored the rules about not taking their phones out, which many foreigners did indeed do. To add to this already long list of problems, there was an incredible amount of just hanging around. The group ahead of us hadn't finished their "zone" yet and this meant we were left in limbo with nothing going on. It was NOT a seamless experience by any means but as I explained previously this is because they were thinking max profit and not max experience with the volume of participants. To make matters even worse, one tourist repeatedly got her phone out, ruining the experience for everyone, and instead of ejecting her, the actors just broke character and yelled at her several times. Absolutely pathetic in my opinion, especially when tickets are £60+ pp. I genuinely left incredibly frustrated and disappointed. Not only had I not had a good experience, I felt cheated out of my money for a pretty poor tour with virtually zero historical accuracies. My suggestion- don't bother.

It was ok. I did it about 7 years ago as a carer pushing a couple of large blokes around in wheelchairs. I was really looking forward to coming back and doing it again this time and being able to access all the areas (some restricted last time). Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations this time around. Actors were brilliant as usual but the actual inside is dated, a bit tacky looking and in need of bringing up to 2022 standards and not the 1980s. Probably hasn’t had a re-fit in terms of props and sets in a long time due to its demands from tourism. Needs something new introducing to it if possible and making just that little bit more scary. Boat ride for example - 8 or so minutes long and
nothing really happens. Basically floating round in the dark. Felt a “samey” as it got past half way. A few people in the group were huffing and puffing as it appeared they felt the same. First room you entered with a judge is repeated at the end again. Similar sort of dialogue in the way it plays out. Felt like we’d already done that but and the same jokes used.

Would recommend to others for sure but I definitely wouldn’t pay £50 for two of us again unless I knew it had changed somewhat.

Eeek! Peasant! You doth not seem satisfied! Well, we can let you in on some exciting news! Our Dungeon is currently undergoing an exciting new update with our new show 'Curse of the Witch' due to land very soon! The Great Fire of London is also undergoing an exciting new revamp so there is plenty to look forward to, or dread 💀 I shall let the Jester know whom you met in the first room, that you compared them to the Judge! They do love to feel like the puppet master, in control, but don't be fooled, they still submit to the King! Perhaps one day you shall return to us, to attempt to escape the Ripper once more 💀

What a fun attraction! My friend invited me to join her in London for her birthday and this was the first attraction we did.

Spoilers ahead.

First there is an interactive photo section. Then you walk into your first room with an actor who leads you to the boat ride. It’s a very gentle ride in the pitch black mostly.

You then experience multiple interactive rooms all with unique stories, actors and experiences. There is crowd participation, but if you get selected and say no, the actors don’t pester you and move onto somebody else. Which I liked!

The best room is the final room (in a pub) I recommend sitting at one of the tables if you can for a better view. :)

Then at the very end of the experience there is a small drop ride, which you can skip. It’s enough to make your stomach turn, but it’s a very short cycle and not that high.

Now the experience is over you can purchase your pictures, some gifts from the shop and refreshments from the bar.

Overall it’s a really fun experience with lots of jump scares! I would definitely do it again, especially during special events when they have limited time rooms!

So why four stars? THE SMELL! It absolutely wreaks and the smell stayed with me for a week. It’s all I could smell. It’s like rotting flesh. I get it’s part of the experience, but it ruined my food for that whole week.

Booking was easy on line and we did this as a family of four (two teens, 15 and 18). Despite having a booked time to arrive there was still a bit of a wait to start the experience. Very disappointed to see the river ride was closed for maintenance, didn’t know this when I booked and a discount would have been nice as we obviously did not have the full experience but paid the full price.

The experience starts well but very quickly becomes predictable, some actors are brilliant, a couple almost seemed bored!

Not as good as I remember it twenty years ago, so I was disappointed. However my two lads said they really enjoyed it and my partner seemed to really enjoy himself too; especially as he got picked on in the court room!
