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 :-)

“Went here 5th march on primary school trip, it was the best fun , best London attraction, the actors (hope they were cos they were so realistic ) were absolutely brilliant from front of house to the finale the judge so scary but fun the two shouldn't go together but at the London dungeon they do . You have to go on each attraction if you can the judge the white chapel walk, Sweeney 'oh my lord' Todd, they are seriously in character, cool guys to hang with if you get my meaning,claustrophobic a need not apply....screamers welcome I'm a grown man and I did more screaming than the kids...visit the plague doctor at your peril.......”
