The London Dungeon brings 1000 years of authentic London history to life with a unique mix of talented live actors, stunning special effects, edge of your seat surprises and two exciting thrill rides.
Guests embark on a journey through a dramatic London landscape going back ten centuries. They are guided through ghastly plague-ridden streets, witness Guy Fawkes’ dramatic plot to blow up Parliament, travel back to Jack the Ripper’s bleak Whitechapel and walk beneath London’s foreboding medieval gates.
Expect to meet Sweeney Todd, the infamous Barber, and his evil sidekick, Mrs Lovett alongside Jack the Ripper with one of his unfortunate victims Mary Jane Kelly. They will be joined by murderous monarch Henry VIII ‘virtually’ played by boisterous British acting giant, Brian Blessed, gunpowder plotter Guy Fawkes and a supporting cast of torturers, plague victims and dark jesters. Guests can also expect close encounters with non-human ‘talent’ including giant cockroaches and the Dungeon’s resident family of scurrying rats!
As well as 19 shows, and innumerable unexpected surprises, the attraction will boast two state-of-the art thrill rides with high-tech surprises guaranteed to get adrenaline pumping. A fast flowing boat ride sees guests condemned by Henry VIII – played virtually by boisterous British acting legend Brian Blessed - to a turbulent journey along the dank River Thames towards execution. Whilst on a deadly dark drop ride they will literally be sentenced to ‘take the drop’ as they plunge three stories in the pitch dark. A chilling, screams-guaranteed, Whitechapel labyrinth will baffle guests as they try to escape ‘Jack’ and find their way out of the East End and a strange but fun journey through Balzelgette’s Victorian Sewer system will leave guests in a disorientated spin.
At the end of your tour, join us in the Dungeon Tavern, a Victorian pub experience. Your first drink is on us!

The London Dungeon Reviews
I did enjoy the experience however I would have preferred to walk myself in my own time instead of going room to room and having to wait. A lot of the history I knew but it was presented in a fun way ... more »
My partner and I visited the London Dungeon yesterday. Despite pre-booking a 1pm tour, we were waiting in line for about 40 minutes before officially beginning the tour. In addition to this, we were i... more »
I would have given this a five star but one of the rides were down for maintenance. In the height of the summer this should have sorted. The actors their were great, really getting into character. I went here as a kid some 20 years ago. It was pretty much the same as back then which was great as I wanted my kids to experience the same. Definitely worth the visit
Unfortunately, we got one ride and not two with no indication that one would be down. No price adjustment etc. I love the San Francisco Dungeons and I feel as though there’s way more focus on smaller groups and interactions there. The entire show consisted of the same audience member being selected in each area. It became a bit of a joke. The actors did a fine job. Overall, it was fun but not overly satisfying. There should be fans or some sort of air-flow and smaller groups.
