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.
|Henry's Wrath - 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 14 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've been waiting weeks for this! My whole holiday just revolved around this visit, this dungeon! And OMG was it scary!
The smells of old London is almost too hard to bare. Narrow streets give you a good impression of what it must have been like back then. The shows and characters were fun and entertaining.
I took my daughter (13) with me for this. We are both scardy cats and I thought this was rather fun. We loved the boat ride, I'm sure I screamed a few times, much to the delight of my daughter haha. Also Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd were awesome experiences! Since both had good and compelling stories and were creepy (never screamed so much in my life and I'm grateful I wasn't alone in this as many girls and even some guys were too haha)
We both were proper scared at times, resulting in my daughter not wanting to go on anymore. So the caution for young children is there for a reason. But we braved it and are feeling very proud of ourselves.
The gift shop was amazing, so many great items to choose from and the girls there were all very helpful!
Next time we will definitely want to visit again when we are back in London!”Sandra See more reviews...
