Overview

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.

Went there for the second time because first one was really good. But some charm wore off because ten years on and everything seems the same. Also the wait was terribly long and torturing (the scariest part): you think the you are in when you...More

Visited with my boyfriend but was not what I expected. Actors were good but it was very cheesy and not overly scary. Would imagine it would be great for kids. I had expected it to be more of a museum with gruesome facts etc but...More

We were at the London Eye and we decided last minute to do the London Dungeon. Having shopped and done a lot of sightseeing our three teenagers were a bit weary and the London Dungeon was exactly what was needed. The experience starts with a...More

I think this is aimed at teenagers and younger or at least adults when they’re not in the mood for high culture. Staff members dress and act as characters using various rooms to portray different times in London’s history. The scope was everything from Henry...More

Great place to visit with the kids. We took two 14 year olds and a 9 year old and they all had fun. The actors are really great and they make it fun and educational. Using the Kellogg’s vouchers made it good value.

Amazing experience at the London dungeons. There is a sign saying it's not recommended for under 12s but it's at their own risk. I'd listen to the sign. There was a child in our group who was crying because she was scared. Definitely one for...More

Big fan of The Dungeons. First time going to London Dungeons and was really excited to visit. Loved all the exhibits and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Only criticism was that several people cut the queue whilst we were waiting. I appreciate that the...More

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

Hi Mark, due to the subject matter it may not be appropriate for your younger children. The acts include famous London murder stories such as Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd so could be a little scary or graphic for the little... More
