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 :-)

“I came to The London Dungeon for my 21st birthday on August 20th last year and I was petrified because I'm a big wimp lol But it was one of the best experiences of my life. It made me laugh, made me cry and jump, especially Jack the Ripper, me and my dad were in stitches when two ladies nearly had a heart attack when Jack the Ripper just jumped out, thank god I was at the back. I cant wait to see the new Dungeon in March. I'm bringing my boyfriend with me who's a bigger wimp than me lol but I no he will love it, bring on the scares and laughter :)”
