How long do tours last?

The tours last approximately 90 minutes no matter what time you enter. This is excluding queuing times which may vary.

What's the best time to visit?

Good question. We love a dark Halloween night ourselves, but for the rest of the year there's just one thing you need to remember. Like any amazingly funny, brilliantly designed and (ha ha) executed attraction... we are very popular. Our guests love us and tend to come back time and time again.

So... make it easy on yourself. BOOK A TICKET IN ADVANCE. That way you:

  • Get to visit when YOU want
  • Know that your place is reserved
  • AND you will get the best available price & save up to 30%
  • Have more fun and less stress - make the most of your day on the Southbank!

Right. Does that make sense? Great, so you know what you have to do. The best way to be sure you have time is to grab a ticket in advance.

Merlin Annual Pass Holders

When you arrive, you will as normal join the queue to get in, however when the queue starts to build, rather than waiting in line the team will issue you a ticket for the first available 15 timeslot to return.   At the specified time you can return and gain access to the attraction by showing the team at the door both your Merlin Annual Pass and ticket we issued.

 Whilst it is inevitable there may be a small queue to secure your time, and there will always be a short wait in our preshow area we hope to see a significant reduction in the time you queue – and that in turn this will really improve your visit. 

Due to the popularity of the attraction in holiday periods, we recommend arriving as early in the day as possible to secure your preferred timeslot and avoid disappointment.  If in the unlikely event that we are unable to give you the timeslot you require on that day, we will book you into a timeslot on another day of your choice.

Standard Passes are not valid during bank holidays, throughout August or from the 30th October - 31st October 2014.

Combination Tickets

If you have purchased your tickets from either The London Eye, Madame Tussuad's or Sea Life London Aquarium.

When you arrive, you will as normal join the queue to get in, however when the queue starts to build, rather than waiting in line the team will issue you a ticket for the first available 15 timeslot to return.   At the specified time you can return and gain access to the attraction by showing the team at the door the ticket we issued.

Whilst it is inevitable there may be a small queue to secure your time, and there will always be a short wait in our preshow area we hope to see a significant reduction in the time you queue – and that in turn this will really improve your visit.

Due to the popularity of the attraction in holiday periods, we recommend arriving as early in the day as possible to secure your preferred timeslot and avoid disappointment. 

Please note that combination tickets do not guarantee you entry unless you have visited our Box Office. If we are sold out for the day (quite common in Peak times) then you will be asked to book for another day.

Standard Passes are not valid during bank holidays, throughout August or from the 30th October - 31st October 2014.

“The London Dungeons…right…well…it was amazing! The theatricality of the dungeons was something like I’ve never seen before. The main element of this was the actors. They scared the hell out of me! I especially think that Mrs Lovett was super frightening, with her crazy tantrums and the way that she came up to me and screamed in my face in a way that pretty obviously stated Sweeney Todd was coming for me!
Mrs Lovett was only a starter. The theatricality of the dungeons pretty much scared the life out of me twice because of the super terrifying pitch black darkness that made you question what was round the next corner of every room. One time there was a door that bangs with people shouting at you from the inside and another time there was a hand that touches your hair from behind. In other words, the darkness put my fear to the test.
There were also some very humorous sections of the dungeons (which would’ve been even funnier for younger children). For example, when two dead bodies came to life, I was expecting them to jump out of their coffins and scare me yet again. However, they just told a few jokes about their deaths and some very disgusting subjects to say the bare minimum. After this, they just casually closed their coffins and went back to death. This allowed you to catch your breath back from all of the previous situations.
Overall, the London Dungeons was a scary, yet very enjoyable and funny experience that I would recommend to lots of children, although the dungeons will especially scare the hell out of you adults out there too!
