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.

This was my second visit. My first was around 10 years ago and I had enjoyed it then so I wanted to take my husband. There have been a lot of changes in 10 years as you can imagine but luckily they kept my favourites. I particularly enjoyed the pie shop, sweeney Todd's barber shop and the new Jekyll and... More

Very cheesy. Consists mainly of walking through dark tunnels. The king Henry part was such a let down. Mostly good for teens or preteens. We were so bored and kept hoping we'd be able to leave soon. Thing is you have to move along with the group and so you are trapped for the whole very very long thing. WAY... More

Visited on request of my nine year old daughter. Was looking forward to being frightened with lots of "boo" moments but this was sadly lacking. A lot of time in pitch darkness. Actors are enthusiastic and try hard and I garnered a few interesting historical facts but definitely not worth £108 for a family of four. Leave it for the... More

popped in to the dungeon with my wife and have to say that it was worth it. I do advise to book it online though to save money. it did drag at a few stages but overall worth the visit and the trip

I was under the impression this place was going to be like The Passage de Terror at Blackpool, Instead it was like some boring history school trip. I actually fell asleep during one of the recreations.The only entertaining part of it was a member of our group had Tourettes which was amusing. Would never go back

Don't want to say to much and spoil it for anyone that hasn't been but this was the highlight of my last London trip. The actors are brilliant and they really get you involved. All the shows are so well done and the rides are great fun. You will be on edge the whole time but it's a good laugh!... More

I visited the Dungeon with my 14 year old son. Having visited the London Dungeon at its former location over twenty years ago I wasnt sure what to expect...... we both loved it! I felt that it took us back in time and gave a horrible histories overview of important events in London like The Plague, Sweeney Todd, The Great... More

Loved this place. Interesting,funny, the boat trip was brilliant. The actors were really good and the last attraction was fab, and a drink at the end to top it off. Brilliant value for money.

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.
