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.

Hi before I start this place is located near the London eye. Myself and my wife did not have a clue about anything they had set up and that made it more funny and exciting. dont ask anyone what happens just go and enjoy.

If you want to explore the dark history of London in a fun and interactive way, this is for you. We really loved it. Great actors, awesome costumes and set design, good special effects. The London Dungeon is just outside the London Eye, so the location cannot be more perfect. I believe the experience is for more than a hour,... More

Similar to the Warwick Castle dungeon (they're owned by Merlin) - the theme for this attraction is organised in a like-minded way: jobbing actors taking on the roles of notorious villains from London's past - Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper, Guy Fawkes etc. You walk through various set-pieces, each stage occupied by an actor who tells you the grisly tale...

This was great fun! I admittedly hadn't researched exactly what this attraction was before we went, so I thought we were walking into a self guided tour of torture chambers. Wrong! It's an interactive show of the dark side of London's history, including the plague, Guy Fawkes, Sweeney Todd, torture during King Henry VIII's reign, the great fire, and much... More

I visited the dungeon on Saturday. Its good fun. The live play style experiences and the rides are all good fun. Only reason for 4* it that the price was still full price even though one of the two rides was out of service. The London Dungeon Tavern is a good experience too.

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.
