What is the Blackpool Tower Dungeon?

The Plague Doctor at the Blackpool Tower Dungeon

It's... brilliant!

The Blackpool Tower Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and a ride 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:

  • We are located in the depths of the iconic Blackpool Tower.
  • 10 laugh-out-loud actor led shows.
  • 1 amazing drop ride.
  • State of the art special effects.
  • Educational, entertaining, and seriously scarily funny.

We're the black comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very, very funny.

Yes, but how does it work?

The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is one of the must-see signature attractions of the Blackpool resort. With a full cast of brilliant actors, 10 shows, rich sets, special effects and an exciting drop ride, it's a 60 minute journey through 1000 years of Lancashire’s murky past. You and your companions walk through the Dungeon, moving from show to show, guided by our professional, theatrical actors.

The shows are based on real Lancastrian history and legends (minus the boring bits). You'll get up close and personal with sinister characters including Captain Johnson from the notorius Skippool smuggling gang and Alizon Devize, the infamous Pendle Witch.

It's a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full on authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you'll pass through Lytham priory, see and feel the effects of the plague, visit Lancaster Castles fearsome torture chamber... and experience the War of the Roses. Believe us, it's better than sightseeing or a boring history lesson!

Who's it for?

We are a perfect destination for mates, groups, families and children aged 8 years+. It is particularly brilliant for people who can plan ahead! Not only will you save money, you will also feel smug on the day. The Dungeon is one of Blackpool’s must see attractions. We get busy! Make things easy on yourself, book in advance.
