Owner description: The London Bridge Experience, crowned ‘Best Guided Tour’ & London Tombs, crowned ‘Top Horror Attraction in the World!’ is a two-part immersive show, bringing together history and horror, education and fun. Guests laugh, scream and cheer their way through 2,000 years of history during the London Bridge Experience, then go down in to the vaults of the bridge [if they dare], known as London Tombs, which is a psychological scare-maze themed upon everyone's worse fears! Winner of the UK’s scariest attraction for 9 years in a row, the Tombs part of the show is not for the faint hearted!

It was terrifying, hilarious and great fun, all at the same time. When I called to book, the sales team were friendly, helpful and professional. We only queued for about 5 mins (even though we were late). The actor’s were really welcoming (and frightening) they knew we were a hen party and gave the bride some glow in the dark bunny ears, a fun unexpected perk.
The experience was educational, interactive and the actor’s did well to pick on lots of people in the group. Then came the tombs, now I’m not much of a scardey cat and even I let out a yelp or three. All I’m going to say is beware of the chainsaw guy, he is terrifying!! Oh, and don’t look behind you… After The Tombs we had a chance to look at the photograph they had taken of us in the experience, it was awful, they’d chopped off some of the hens’ heads. The sales assistant asked if we wanted to go down to take another photo, we did and came out with a hilarious photo (and everyone still had their heads attached). I wasn’t expecting them to offer that alternative, it was brilliant customer service. It was such a hit with the hen’s, we were all still laughing and chatting about it the next morning. It’s perfect for a group of friends or families, I shall definitely be returning.

Well, what a let down! I've only given this a 2 which was mainly for the actors within this 'attraction'.
We paid £86 for 2 adults and 3 children ( aged 13 and two 15yr olds) and could have paid for the '2 for 1' option ( tip on this below if you are going) but chose to pay the full price as sometimes there a ball ache on these 2 for 1s offer. In this case I should have chose the latter and saved £20 ( even then it would have been too much for this) as there was no queuing at all which spoke volumes where London attractions go!
On entering we were asked to wait a while when suddenly a t.v screen came on with no prior warning to show a short film about the London Bridge. This was very poor quality and lacked any real interest to younger children. Next another room, various artefacts about the a Great fire etc which was very amateurish and of no interest at all to many there.
This over we were guided to rooms by gory looking actors and given a gruesome talk about beheadings and all that. Through another room and more actors explaining about the bridge and the fire of London. At one point your taken to a chamber/ tunnel where you all squeeze into. A small t.v is played again showing supernatural/ gory fuzzy images.
If your sat at the very far end of the tunnel or right at the beginning of the door you can't see anything of this on the screen.
After sitting here a few minutes your taken out into the tombs. Here we go now, it's all jumping out and screams! Your up and down walk ways, people jumping out of the darkness, heads hanging from the ceiling, more jumping out and then the surprise.....you have to squeeze through super inflated air beds that are like tunnels. I'm sorry to say this but if you are overweight this could be a problem! Very uncomfortable!
On and on this goes through different rooms with actors and chain saws and all that.
My 13year old daughter who is terrified of everything just found it funny most of the time.
The end or so we thought...your lead right into the gift shop with all the usual t-shirts etc with emblazoned London Bridge Experience on.
We all said what a waste of money this was but obviously it's to everyone's taste.
Here are just a few tips:
1) don't pay the full price, look on voucher codes sites especially 'Myvouchercodes' website which had the '2 for 1' offer until December. Children go free for each paying adult.
2) we declined the photo shoot as we had to pair up and look like we were to about kill each other! Sorry, just wasn't doing this in front of the group of Italian lads that my 13year old daughter was in front of!
3) sit at home,watch 'Evil Dead' and have your friends jump out of you at random points!
4) pay to the London Dungeons- far better experience for your money.
All in all, if you want a good tongue in cheek laugh, then go for it!

I was so looking forward to this tour and it was such a let down. Me and my boyfriend decided to this tour as it was free with The London Pass. The ticket area was well done with staff trying to create an atmosphere so my hopes were high. We went around to the entrance to find a long queue of people waiting to get in. The ticket office don't tell you about this. We were ok because we had fast track entrance but there was a lot of people with children who were stuck waiting. We got into the exhibition and we were in this small room with loads of interesting historical facts written on signs around the room. When we got into the actual show as such it was rushed. The tombs were ok but I think what made it good was the group we were with in the tombs (we were split in three separate groups) were great fun. Overall it was ok but The London Dungeons are much better.

Great fun, great actors and quite interesting and informative. But too expensive for what it is and you are rushed through which is fine for most of it apart from the museum- maybe this part should be last instead of the shop!

A wait of over 40 minutes outside with little time difference between the priority and 'normal' queue nearly made a bad start to this attraction. Once in side you go on a two part tour. First part is a whirlwind tour through the gruesome history of London Bridge. Costume actors are used to tell these stories and this really adds to the experience. Second part was the 'tombs' it is a terrify journey designed to the scare the living daylights out of you!! You do come out laughing...maybe a nervous laugh! Overall it is an experience unlike most other tourist attractions in London.
