What is the London Dungeon?

Cast of characters at the London Dungeon

Fear is a funny thing...

The Dungeons brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious fun and it’s sometimes a bit scary. 

We love it. We know you will too. Here's why:

  • Full on 360 sets with gripping storytelling
  • 18 interactive shows, 20 live actors, 1000 years of history
  • state of the art theming and special effects
  • 2 awesome underground rides
  • laughs, screams and cutting edge storytelling

Have a look at this 360 view of some of the Dungeons most popular shows.
We're the black comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very very funny.

Yes, but how does it work?

The London Dungeon is one of the capital's 'must-see' signature attractions - delighting audiences for almost 40 years. It's a 90 minute journey through 1000 years of London's murky past. You and your companions walk through the Dungeon, moving from show to show, guided by our professional actors. See a map of the London Dungeon's tour.

The shows are based on real London history and legends (minus the boring bits). You'll get up close and personal with sinister characters including Jack the Ripper and infamous barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd.

It's a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full on authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you'll pass through the Whitechapel Labyrinth of misty East London streets, plague-ravaged houses, the fearsome torture chamber... and see (and feel!) what could have been if Guy Fawkes had succeeded. Believe us, it's better than a sightseeing or boring museum tour of London.

Read more about the characters through their personal profiles.

Here are some of our most popular shows and attractions:

Descend into the heart of the Dungeon for the ultimate journey.
The Tyrant – Boat Ride
Henry VIII sent traitors to the tower. Don’t lose your head on his boat ride...
Guy Fawkes
Remember, remember; this will bring the house down.
The Torturer
It’s back-breaking work. Did I hit a nerve?
The Plague Doctor
Just stay alive! There’s something in the air. Seen the Doctor’s leeches?
Sweeney Todd
Who’s next? Have a short back and sides with Sweeney.
Whitechapel Labyrinth
He’s behind you… Jack’s out and about in the old streets of Whitechapel.
Jack the Ripper
Fancy an evening stroll? It’s what’s on the inside that counts...
The Judge
Frantically funny. Thief? Villain? Rogue? Clear conscience?
Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom
Drop ride to doom….hold on tight.

Who's it for?

The London Dungeon is scary fun for everyone, except very young guests and wimps! (our recommended age is 12 years old and above).

It's particularly brilliant for people who can plan ahead and book online! Not only will you save money, you'll also get to feel smug on the day. The London Dungeon is one of London's MUST SEE attractions. We get busy!

Make things easy on yourself, book in advance.

Guests who are under 16  years of age must be accompanied by an adult over 18 years of age!

Didn't you used to be on Tooley Street?

That's right. We had nearly 40 amazing years down beneath the arches on Tooley Street. But now we moved to a massive new Dungeon beneath County Hall on the South Bank.

Who loves us...?

Have you seen these people? They're a strange bunch... but we love them. They are better looking, more intelligent and just generally nicer than average people. Much like yourself...

Go on... 'Like' the London Dungeon before you book your ticket. We like you!

“I would recommend it to everybody its a great family day out.I booked it online for the 10-11 session and we the first ones(or peasants shall I say) in the queue.It's great fun for all the family and a great way to re-visit London's history without going through textbooks and it's very cheap if you book it with more than one London attraction.Even words cannot really describe my experience but all I can say is that the London dungeons is worthy of more than 5 stars”
