The London Dungeon, London

#2 of 308 in Fun & Games in London
Specialty Museum · Hidden Gem · Entertainment Center
Situated in County Hall next to the Coca-Cola London Eye, the London Dungeon is a 110 minute journey through London's darkest history.

The London Dungeon brings 1000 years of authentic London history to life with a unique mix of talented live actors, stunning special effects, edge of your seat surprises and two exciting thrill rides.

Guests embark on a journey through a dramatic London landscape going back ten centuries. They are 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.

Expect to meet Sweeney Todd, the infamous Barber, and his evil sidekick, Mrs Lovett alongside Jack the Ripper with one of his unfortunate victims Mary Jane Kelly. They will be joined by murderous monarch Henry VIII ‘virtually’ played by boisterous British acting giant, Brian Blessed, gunpowder plotter Guy Fawkes and a supporting cast of torturers, plague victims and dark jesters. Guests can also expect close encounters with non-human ‘talent’ including giant cockroaches and the Dungeon’s resident family of scurrying rats!

As well as 19 shows, and innumerable unexpected surprises, the attraction will boast two state-of-the art thrill rides with high-tech surprises guaranteed to get adrenaline pumping. A fast flowing boat ride sees guests condemned by Henry VIII – played virtually by boisterous British acting legend Brian Blessed - to a turbulent journey along the dank River Thames towards execution. Whilst on a deadly dark drop ride they will literally be sentenced to ‘take the drop’ as they plunge three stories in the pitch dark. A chilling, screams-guaranteed, Whitechapel labyrinth will baffle guests as they try to escape ‘Jack’ and find their way out of the East End and a strange but fun journey through Balzelgette’s Victorian Sewer system will leave guests in a disorientated spin.

At the end of your tour, join us in the Dungeon Tavern, a Victorian pub experience. Your first drink is on us!

  • We enjoyed our trip to London Dungeons. I think it has improved since its location in Tooley Steeet. It focuses more on the history of London. I went with a teenager and a 9 year old. My teenager....  more »
  • Great way to learn was quick history about London's most famous periods. The actors where great and very informative. The sets were great too. Gave a good sense of the era. The dark "alleys" where quite interesting to try navigate in the near dark but just made it that more fun. There is a bit in a boat were you could get wet. I was lucky enough to not get a single drop of water on me. But unfortunately for my partner, her leg got soaked but it didn't take away anything from the experience and they do warn you about that
  • Wow. It was so interesting. Like it's totally worth the money. It's really entertaining and some parts a bit scary. I like the fact they make it feel and look real. And they involved different people in the whole details. I literally didn't want it to end. Nd the last ride part was just priceless. I also loved the fact the took you pictures and gave you the chance to collect it. I loved all the characters they really played their role so well, I can't even choose a favourite they were all so good. They had this enthusiasm.
