Attraction details
Owner description: 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 must if you are a keen Historian. The models of the previously tortured are very graphic. It gives you a insight of how human life was valued in comparison to today. A good experience to go with the family.

We first went here back in June and made the visit first thing on a Saturday morning to beat the queues , which we nearly did but total wait time was still about 30 mins as there are two queues one for pre booking and the other for those who haven't . So in fairness they take from both lines and then there is the photo shoot when you get inside so total time was about 1hr 45.
The actual experience was great fun and the scenes were acted out brilliantly by the staff. We returned in December bringing some friends and like us they also enjoyed it, this time it was a Monday morning and no queues at all straight in.
Top tip save yourselves a fortune and use the two for one vouchers from the train station as the normal price is £24 each!!

My friends and I visited the Dungeon last weekend and I have to say we had a great time. Overall the tour was about an hour and 15 mins and we never got bored. I don't want to spoil it so I won't say much. We bought tickets online to skip the queue. The London Eye is also just beside it so we bought online combo tickets that worked out at £30. Great deal for both.

Firstly if your scared of the dark don't go !! I'm not going too say to much about what happens , as i don't won't to spoil it for you . its a great thrill worth going we had a good laugh !! you will love the short boat ride , its not suitable for child under 8 as some of the jokes are a little suggestive .
its expensive , but as a one off treat go for it .

I had already been to the old Dungeons last year and loved it, so was really looking forward to seeing the new one. I definitely recommend purchasing your ticket online before you go as you won't have to queue as long. Inside is a lot bigger than the old one and the rides are much better too. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because I found the group over crowded and there was no mention of the Fire of London which was in the old Dungeons. Overall though, the actors were brilliant and a good history lesson for the 90 mins your there. I recommend booking the ghost bus tour in the evening once you have been to the dungeons.
