“I was at the Dungeon with school about 20 years ago and loved it. Recently visited it again with family but unfortunately we got disappointed.
I'm sure the Dungeon is great if you are a native English speaker but for foreigners it is quite difficult to understand everything ('London' accent).
The boat would have been nice if I hadn'n gotten soaking wet and was forced to buy new trousers and underpants.....”
The Dungeon says...
“Hi Diane Glad to read you enjoyed the Dungeon previously, and visited us again. As you mention the dialogue is all in English, however we hope you enjoyed the detailed sets, smells, rides and visual jokes. We are looking at how we can improve the Dungeon for those guests who don’t speak English as their 1st language. The boat ride can be wet, like most water rides it is pure luck who gets wet and who stays dry, it really is random! ”
London Dungeon’s ‘Late’ nights - for mums
“Come face-to-face with some of history’s most notorious characters in an evening you and your mum pals will never forget
Guy Fawkes will make sure you have an explosive time! It’s that evening you and your buddies have been planning for a long time – the legendary girls' night out –but where do you go?
While the children are safely at home with dad, why not opt for something a bit different and go back in time at The London Dungeon (now situated in South Bank opposite the London Eye) on one of their ‘Late’ nights.
You'll get to journey though London’s vivid, and sometimes dark, past, which is brought to life with a mix of rides, charismatic actors and detailed props.
The experience starts with the obligatory group comedy picture - one of you in the stocks ready to be beheaded while the rest of your camp is holding axes ready to do the deed.
Moving through the dark times of Henry VIII, having to prove you’re not a traitor in court, to Jack the Ripper stalking you through a desolate Whitechapel, you never know what’s going to come next which makes the surprises even more chilling.
Some of the highlights for us were getting to have a bit of one-on-one time with the off-the-wall Mrs Lovett, experiencing Sweeney Todd’s Barber shop up close and getting to see what life was really like during the plague.
You can see that a lot of money has been invested in the new setting for The London Dungeons to make it a scarier experience (for adults and children), but it’s the comedy that comes from the actors that makes the experience memorable.
Rides included in the experience give an extra adrenaline rush, from flipping chairs, free-falls and in-the-dark boat rides. Bravery is rewarded at the end with the opportunity to have a stiff drink at the dungeon tavern where a jester and some notorious characters will come and say hi.
Here at MFM HQ, we rate this a five star experience for mums who want to let their hair down, or if you children are brave types then they’ll more than enjoy getting stuck into some of London’s most gruesome moments.

“The NEW Dungeon is really good but some of the stuff is quite scary for me. BUT I LOVED IT!”
Simply the Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“We visited the new london dungeon last Monday, we had a fantastic time. Their was nothing not to like about the London Dungeion from start to finish, it provoked scary screams and lots of laughter too.
The whole on the London Dungeon experience was interactive, the staff were friendly and amazing, the attraction is definitely worth a visit, we think its 'Simply the Bext' attraction in the city, by far!!
I reccommend this attraction to young and old, its a splendid day out.”

The best part is the Judge!
We went to the Dungeon on a schooltrip! :)”
“Fabulous from start to finish. There were little twists and turns around every corner which had me screaming all the way around. I was frightened from start to finish. A great day out.”
“The all new London Dungeon was fantastic,its not scary at all all the way through its hilarious, as they say "Fear is a funny thing", I recommend people to go, as it is a journey to remember.Ive seen little kids who look about 5 or 6 yrs old go in the Dungeon, so if they can face their fears, you can do it too! The best thing about the Dungeon, is the end where you have a laughing time on the Drop dead ride,its awesome and I would definitely go again this year :D !!!!!”Lucy See more reviews...
