Things To Do
The London Dungeon is by far one of London's most major attractions. Visitors are exposed to the dark scope of British history with infamous characters, visual effects and artful storytelling. Break through the medieval gates of hell and follow this way...
Talented actors will keep you and the kids entertained on your 2-hour tour. They know all about the history and they never break character, so they’ll maintain the atmosphere even when bombarded with questions from curious little visitors. From the torture-loving Executioner to the creepy Plague Doctor, to Jack The Ripper and Sweeney Todd - you’ll be meeting quite the bunch!
Captivate your minds and troubled souls in the 360-degree sets with gripping storytelling. Try not to be swallowed up by the state-of-the-art theming and special effects - you'll feel as if you are at the centre of the horrifying history itself...
Watch 20 live theatrical actors perform in 19 interactive shows in this dungeon experience, as they dig up 1000 years of history. This immersive educational experience is truly unique. Dilly dally with colourful villains, and sinister characters as you walk down the ghastly plague-ridden streets...
Have you taken a spin on the underground rides? Just when you think you can't scream anymore the dungeon is home to 2 exciting thrill rides! Fasten your belts and hang on for your dear lives on the Drop Dead ride! Inspired by the Newgate Gallows, you'll feel the drastic effects of the 'long drop' in your body. Can you hear the cracking of your bones yet? Another mortifying attraction worth visiting is The Descent where guests will join the Lift Jester as you descend into the depths of the London Dungeon... You'll have no choice but to check out The Torture Chamber and The Ten Bells Pub (Sweeney Todd's territory). Hop on a ghastly tyrant boat ride, as sinister and spooky as a journey to the underworld itself.
London Dungeon features a few jump scares, smoke effects, loud noises and dark places but you know your kids best - if your little ones aren’t easily scared, chances are they’ll find the experience fun and engaging. However, if it gets too scary for you, you can exit at any time.
Now, enjoy an amazing experience like no other, as you watch London Dungeon's tourist attraction bring history to life.

Screaming really takes it out of you, doesn't it? Replenish your energy levels on black pudding scotch eggs, smoked salmon on soda bread with pickled cucumbers, or Gruyere cheese straws in the Tavern. You'll have access to the Tavern at the end of the tour and it's the only place you can get food & drink during your time at the attraction.
Please be aware food and drink cannot be consumed whilst you are inside The London Dungeon.
