This year The London Dungeon is promising its biggest, best and boldest Halloween season yet as it raises the curtain on a lavish new pumpkin-filled Halloween production in its new home in County Hall, next to the EDF Energy London Eye. AND following a record breaking run in 2012 the attraction is extending the Halloween revelries to a whole six weeks of scary fun!
Halloween revellers can meet the fiendish Sweeney Todd, with his evil ‘pumpkin pie making’ Mrs Lovett, get up close and personal with Jack the Ripper, Guy Fawkes, Henry VIII and a vast supporting cast of historical characters bringing 1000 years of authentically putrid London history to life. PLUS expect some stunning special effects, edge of your seat surprises and two exiting thrill rides. AND as it's Halloween there will be additional scares and laughs thrown in throughout the attraction including The London Dungeon’s own Halloween home ‘brew’ and a ghastly trick or treat lolly for every guest – will it be a Chupa Chups or a revolting insect lolly?
“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...
