About
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.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Fun! 😁
Nov 2021 • Couples
My favorite part was the last activity (but I'm not gonna write down what it was, because I don't want to spoil it 😁).
The whole experience was such a fun, I wasn't scare at all (maybe a little at some point😁).
The actors were great! ❤️
I am gonna visit that place once more, that's for sure ❤️😁

An hour or so of talking in dark, stuffy rooms
Nov 2021
London Dungeon was fine, but there are dozens of attractions in London I'd recommend before this one.

Honestly not much happened during the majority of the visit and was simply the group being corralled from room to room and simply being told about various stories of London's darker past. It reminded me of a theme park pre-show that you'd get before the actual ride, just 15 times in a row. There was also a boat ride where again, nothing in particular happened.

There were some highlights though which included the Jack the Ripper scene, particularly in the pub. Also the jail scene before the drop ride was very good. But a lot of the scenes were just too laboured, too much talking and should be more 'show not tell' - this must be a very frustrating experience for tourists who aren't strong English speakers.

The drop ride at the end is great, and credit to the actors, at least with them you feel like you're getting something for your money.

People were told not to use their phones, this was strictly enforced and I think I'm fine with that.

Regarding COVID, it didn't feel safe at all.

If you are in any way anxious or cautious, do not visit. You are with the same group of 30-or-so strangers for an hour in small, stuffy, airless rooms, often crammed together, with the majority not wearing masks.

Fantastic experience but photos ridiculously overpriced
Nov 2021
Very enjoyable. Well-integrated rides and seamless transitions throughout the experience. Actors were very professional and not once broke act the whole time. Sadly the ridiculous prices and rude store staff at the end of the experience left us with a sour taste in our mouths. £15 for one single print out photo is ridiculous and staff screamed across the room as people took photos on their phones. If they charged a reasonable price I'm sure they would make a lot more money as most people would buy one. Just left us feeling they wanted to scam us.

Outstanding.
Nov 2021 • Couples
Outstanding entertainment. My wife thought what had she been talked into but five mins in she loved it. Such professional actors playing each part. Frightening, funny, slapstick and informative. Money well spent.

First time visit
I’ve visited the Edinburgh and Blackpool Dungeons on many occasions but first time here. Court house and autopsy are a dungeons standard but still fun. The boat ride was particularly fun too but overall- not a bad way to fill an hour

Still good fun
Nov 2021
It’s always good fun here. Love visiting and seeing the new attractions.
There was nothing new this time, and gutted the fire of London section has gone. That was really good.
Felt a little bit underwhelmed this time. But will still go again

Great fun day out
Oct 2021
Myself and my husband visited the Dungeons for the first time at it's new home for Halloween, we were a bit skeptical on the new venue, as it seemed so fitting to be under London Bridge before. However we were not disappointed, the dungeons are great fun, the actors work hard to keep you entertained and the stories are good fun with little creeps along the way. We loved the boat ride and the drop ride at the end is brilliant, we remembered it well from it's previous home.
The only time we had to wait around a bit was in the mirror maze, nothing too major though.
They now have a fab little pub at the end of the tour, but unfortunately we didn't have time to stay for a drink.

I'm surprised by some comments bragging about how their kids weren't scared and that it's boring, let's not forget this attraction is meant for all age groups, it doesn't advertise itself as being a Horror Maze and I'm pretty sure they're intention is not to permanently damage little kids by scaring them to death. It's a great fun day out simple as.
