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.

I visited my best friend from Banff, Alberta who moved to London a few years ago and had a few days of sight seeing by myself to fill. As a history lover, I knew I wanted to come here! It was incredible, the actors are amazing and friendly (even the ones trying to scare you) Definitely going here again next... More

The actors were great and the history quite interesting. Although they tried to scare you as much as possible which would work great on teenagers and maybe some adults but we found it a bit of a laugh. Was fun but I didnt think it was that great also the drop ride wasnt operational so we missed out on that.... More

As a young lad I went to the original dungeon when it first opened in Tooley St under the railway arches. How times change! Today's Dungeon is a very different place. Now centrally located under County Hall right by the London Eye it is now a place brought to life by actors introducing the history of olde London Town! This... More

My partner and I booked our London Dungeon visit whilst on a weekend break in London. I was massively scared before going in but it was such a laugh and scary at the same time! Actors were superb, lots to watch and get involved in! I usually hate rides but gained the courage to go on the ride at the... More

We visited London Dungeons 19th March 2017. Easy to find, literally right by the London Eye. There are a few attractions down this way so it is definitly worth noting that it is substantially cheaper when multi attractions ate booked - make the most of it. Myself & a friend paid in £30 each. Quite expensive but this is London... More

Our first trip to London and we decided to visit this attraction. Loads of fun. Gives you a little bit of history with an entertaining trip through lots of different rooms that are all set at different points in time. The plague, Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd, the fire of London, etc. The actors were great. They usually pick a... More

After standing in one queue we eventually got to the till, nearly dropping with shock at the price £30 each ( if you feel the need find an offer!), then shown to another queue. After finally getting in we can only say DIssapointing!! The staff did their best to entertain but we weren't quite sure who or what age range... More

Well done to the London Dungeon. I visited on Sunday 19th March with my son who has learning difficulties. He really wanted to visit the Dungeon but was worried about it. The Jester at the entrance couldn't have been more helpful. She even went as far as accompanying us round the whole Dungeon, holding hands with him to reassure him.... 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.
