The London Dungeon has been a staple of the city since 1974, and moved to County Hall in 2012.

With its relocation, came the addition of new scenes, the change of others. Throughout the adventure you will take a boat ride for traitors, ‘drop in’ on some hangings, experience Sweeney Todd’s barber shop, learn Guy Fawkes, feel what its like to visit a Plague Doctor, encounter Jack the Ripper, and much more. A Victorian Tavern at the end allows you to enjoy a complimentary drink too!

Inside, guests are put into groups of about 20 people at a time and are taken from scene to scene. Each scene depicts a period or event from London’s gruesome past and uses audience interaction to bring it to life. As well as the scenes with actors, there are also a couple of rides interspersed during the experience. Special physical effects throughout the attraction add to the fun.

The full experience lasts approximately 110 minutes and is not recommended for the squeamish – it is not a ‘jump out’ horror-maze type attraction, and you will learn quite a bit, but wimps should beware. Teenagers and young adults in particular are the biggest fans of this attraction.

This attraction operates on a time-slot ticketed system, if tickets are pre-booked. On the door tickets are more expensive and will require you to enter a queue, which can be an hour or more during peak times. Fast track and VIP tickets are also available.
