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.

First of all, we had a lot of fun! This is the second time I've been and it still brings laughs and scares. However, we pre-booked our tour online this time but when we got there the boat ride was down on scheduled maintenance. This was not announced online and we still had to pay full price despite the reduced... More

We really enjoyed our trip to the Dungeon, with our children aged 11 and 8. I had been a bit concerned that it would too much for the kids but they absolutely loved it! The special effects and 'set design' were all really good, but the actors themselves stole the show. Such a talented group of people who work so... More

As a fan of both horror and the darker parts of history The London Dungeon was a must-see for me. The long line on a sunny day discouraged me a little, but once I got my ticket I got in immediately. There's a lot of waiting around in lines and standing to be done at The Dungeon, which is a... More

Queued for 45 minutes in the dark...didn't start off too well! Some of the actors were really fun and put on a good performance, however some were obviously quite tired and merely regurgitated their words. Some of the costumes were so tatty they weren't just raggedy from being in old London they were just really old. Some of the props... More

A place to remember the old London, with its frightning atmosphere. Actors and studios are helpful to recreate the atmosphere. However, it might not be accessible for foreign tourists.

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

They have created a great relationship between the history of London and the adrenaline of the tour during the dungeon!

Excellent destination. Great if the weather is bad. My son had a fab time, especially as he was picked to interact with the characters. Great attraction for all ages.

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

I first went here in 2000, this time I came with my husband during with school holidays. It was crazy with people pushing and shoving everywhere. With only one security guard and no one really informing what the process of entry was. Once inside it was ok, changed so much that I was disappointed as I had told my husband... 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.
