The Plague Doctor

PLague doctor wearing mask

It's 1665 and the Black Plague is rife. Wander down the winding muddy alley past houses with red crosses, rotting bodies and black rats.

Plague House

Welcome to the residence of... well... it may not matter. Try not to make too much noise. There's a fella here who'd like to die in peace - if his wife will let him!

Coughin' Coffin

Dead or Alive? Buried too soon? Something's stirring! Better hurry on to...

Meet the Plague Doctor

Oh wait... he's dead. But let's not worry, the assistant is in charge and on the lookout for those infected. What can go wrong?

What you'll learn

  • Get the latest advice and in vogue cures from 1665.
  • Witness modern anaesthetic!
  • See what those leeches are really for.

To the Sewers!

Bazalgette's Sewer is the height of Victorian engineering, it prevented a recurrence of the Great Stink. Venture on through a spinning sewer if you can, but beware the locals. They are quite whiskery and have long tails... if you take our meaning.

“Oh, I really miss toley street!
It's really sad walking past the empty building in the street.
I sort of wish it hadn't moved (even if it was for the best)
But the new one is better, with fantastic new experiences and it feels like I actually went back in time!!!
And I must say it kinda blew the other attractions out of the water!!!
But I will allways miss tolley street as my first ever vist.
I wish that the new dungeon was in tolley street...
Goodbye tolley street :(
