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 had a good time. It's really funny. And it's not really scary so you can go without any fear. You end up knowing a little more about London history and that's good too!

Although I felt a lot of the time like herded cattle, this attraction was good fun and my two children really enjoyed it. The actors were superb and they brought the various London scenes to life. Would I go back, probably no. I would know what to expect.

Go with a two for one offer to make the most of it. Attendants at attraction are fun and engaging, took a bit less time than we thought it would. The size of the group you go around the attraction with was a bit on the large size, like sardines at a few points but the attraction was a lot... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the Dungeons as it was a fun and enjoyable way of learning a bit of London History! The drop at the end was fun too and it resulted in a funny photo of my girlfriend and I! Only disappointment would be that my girlfriend remembered it as being scarier when it was at the old...

Visited The Dungeon yesterday. Our 8 year old son is in a wheelchair with a little mobility outside of it. We also had our 17 year old daughter who is not disabled with us. We knew the attraction was over a number of floors. We hadn't booked our wheelchair slot for this one and decided to try a walk up... More

I went into London dungeons not expecting much, I had heard about it from various sources but what we got when we got there was amazing! Great actors who truly make you feel a part of the experience, beautifully made Tudor time rooms and staircases with great lighting effects and the ambience within the different parts of the dungeons is...

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.
