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:
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.
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.

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...
Remember, remember; this will bring the house down.
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?
Who’s next? Have a short back and sides with Sweeney.
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...
Frantically funny. Thief? Villain? Rogue? Clear conscience?
|Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom|
Drop ride to doom….hold on tight.
The London Dungeon is scary fun for everyone, except very young guests and wimps! (our recommended age is 8 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!
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.
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 am a teaching assistant and recently visited the Dungeons
with our Year 5 children. It was absolutely brilliant, loved everything about it. The acting was so good they really got into character and were very convincing. I loved the eery boat ride passing King Henry 8th and when we were suddenly plunged into darkness, terrified me but it was brilliant! Another favourite was the gallows and being in Sweeny Todds barber shop. Cannot wait to take my own children in the summer holidays and to thoroughly spooked all over again!”Sarah See more reviews...
