Guy Fawkes - The Gunpowder Plot

Guy Fawkes

Beyond the city gates you enter a dark, rat-infested tunnel that winds back beneath the city of London. Dare you proceed?

Dare you...? Of course you do. You've come to The London Dungeon! Not only are you brave and of higher than average intelligence, you're good looking. Of course you dare. Anyway - and this is the kicker - who could resist the chance to BLOW UP PARLIAMENT?

In this show you'll encounter:

  • Conspirators on a secret mission.
  • The blowhard (ha ha) soldiers of Parliament.
  • A room filled with gunpowder.
  • The world's most famous plotter (or at least... part of him).

This is an experience filled with intrigue, conspiracy and danger. Discover The Gunpowder Plot, and what really happened beneath the Houses of Parliament on that November night in 1605.

(Obviously you shouldn't concern yourselves with a certain unlit fuse next to all the gunpowder. Just relax and enjoy the history… it's never been so explosive.)

Burning questions

  • What did happen to Guy Fawkes during his 10 days of torture?
  • See, hear, feel and smell what could have happened - it's going to get explosive!

Dungeons Uncovered...

This show requires our actors to perform some very fast-paced repartee with one very… very special effect. It takes lots of training, timing and comedic ability.

Plus, this show brings out our team's poetic side. Here is our tribute to the classic Fireworks Night verse. (Spot the subtle subliminal message if you can).

Remember remember the fifth of November
You'll love The Dungeons a lot,
We see no reas'n, why you should be freez'n
When gunpowder gets so hot :-)

“The London Dungeon is probably the most incredible experience families, teens and adults can experience and get a good balance of fear, education and of course fun! From the first step inside, audiences are thrown into the detail of every piece of scenery and dark history the dungeon has to offer. Even though the queues can be a pain and lengthy, the dungeon makes sure it isn't a boring wait.

From the decent to the finale of drop dead I was overwhelmed with the special effects and talent of the actors. If your looking for professional acting practice for families without feeling patronised at any point... look no further. The Jack the Ripper sections showcases this brilliantly, with a mix a fear and tension. Jack the Ripper stands out!

The two thrilling rides within just add to the experience. Even if your a person who doesn't like rides, don't be put off! It's all FUN! The boat ride is in total darkness at points and the twist at the end makes it even more exciting. Drop Dead was probably one of the most unexpected ride experiences I've been on, which promises to make you scream. With the ride photo it makes it even better to experience it just to see the end result!

Sweeney Todd is terrifying. There were many points in the dungeon where I felt tense, but this took it to another level! If you don't like darknesses this will give you a scare but this section will creep anyone out!

I would recommend this to anyone I know! Even if the price of entry is high don't let it put you off from an experience you'll never forget! If you've been to the old dungeon, come again! You'll get a completely different experience! I'm very much looking forward to experiencing this again and new shows to be coming in the future!”
