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.

We couldn't see the point in booking tickets and tour time online when you then had to stand in a queue for over 30mins to collect them -only having 2 people on the desk when the queue was that long was ridiculous and once you were in it you couldn't get out of it. However, the experience was very well... More

I had read a lot of negative reviews, however we booked on-line nonetheless. I was thrilled we did, 2 Adults & 2 Child, very happy. The staff were excellent, very well versed on their history for this tour. So very entertaining, the Doctor, especially had us in stitches, pun intended! History being explored was dark and horrid, but it happened.... More

Went to the London Dungeon on a recent family trip to London, We purchased our tickets on line before travelling and had them printed out so no queuing at the ticket office. Also we booked for the first tour of the day at 11 AM. You are brought through different rooms and shows in groups where there are actors acting... More

Went to the dungeons with my family and it didn't disappoint! We had a great laugh and with the 2 for 1 tickets it was good value for money. We had a bit of an offensive misunderstanding with the security man at the entrance which is the reason I gave the dungeons 4 instead of 5 but other than that,... More

Had a great time visiting the London Dungeons with friends. The history was informative and the trip round had a number of scary moments. There is an advised age restriction which was not well managed and lead to a few crying very young children before they were guided out! Overall a fun experience 😱

London dungeon is one of my favourite London attractions and I've been a few times, it's pricey (aren't they all) but is an experience, you can get 2 for 1 vouchers with train travel. The first time I went I was skeptical but it definitely exceeded my expectations, the whole thing is guided by actors and it's like being immersed... More

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.
