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.

A friend had recommended to us that we go here. We pre booked the early bird tickets which then saved some money as long as we got there before 10.30. VERY dark inside, all was well organised and interactive with the audience. Some great surprises along the way and it was educational whilst being entertaining. Was nice to stop for... More

Me and a friend had pre booked tickets as we had a lot we had to squeeze into 2 days! We were down for the 2.30 slot but we actually didn't end up starting the tour until gone 3. I appreciate that the tour itself can only have so many people at once but if that's the case then I... More

Had a fab morning visiting the dungeons. The boat ride was great fun and the actors are great. Fun for all young and all. Hardly any waiting and found it very educating too. The ride at the end was good fun and the drink in the bar was a nice touch but gin cocktail didn't taste anything like gin.

visited on 18/02/2017 with my two children,We All loved it.Went in the attraction at our allocated time slot.Actors were really good.Tour lasted about 1 hour 45 minutes and I think it was good value. Only thing is if you buy the combi-tickets give yourself plenty of time to pick up your tickets as it gets busy at the tills.

We booked online for 5pm on the Thursday during half term. When you arrive you need to go to the box office to collect your tickets. Queue formed however we were served fairly quickly. Then we had to return back outside to queue again to return into the same part of the building we were just in. You queue to... More

I got this addon as part of the London Eye thing, along with the aquarium. The aquarium sucked, but maybe im spoiled from Chicago's. The first half of this was kinda boring, but the innuendo's they added towards the end made it funnier. I think a lot of people will give this a better rating because they give a free... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood 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.
