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.

This place is brilliant, the actors are amazing! You stay gripped from start to finish, it's funny and makes you jump! I'd definitely recommend for older children probably 8 and above, it can be dark and the unexpected make you jump but it's so much fun! Only downside for my visit was the last ride of the attraction was closed... More

We expected scary and were very disappointed. Good parts... Both the rides were excellent and there was a scare factor - although the height restrictions were higher on the second ride, meaning more children missed it. The first is a water ride and is pitch black at points and then you dramatically shoot backwards, the second a drop ride where... More

I visited earlier this week with my boyfriend and we had an awesome time! We paid full price as we failed to get any 2 for 1 offers but we still felt it was great value for money! The staff/actors are so good and make you feel like you're really on a historic trip of the horrible past of London,... More

Loved it from beginning to end. The detail to costume,actors and scenery were fantastic. Loved the history. Just enough comedy to drop your guard before something happened to keep you on your toes. Loved the rides too. The whole family were buzzing afterwards ,although a little disappointed it had come to an end

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.
