The London Dungeon tips and tricks

"Better for older kids, beware of nightmares!"

My 8 year old had nightmares for a bit after the dungeon. I'd stick with the suggested age (think it's 11 or 12)!


Maria says

"Scary for younger kids"

I wouldn't suggest it for very small children unless they like scary stuff!

"Great interactive way of learning "

A much more fun and interactive way to learn about history rather than going to a museum

What to expect at The London Dungeon

Fancy a fright? This one's an absolute scream

Thirteen scary stories (made even scarier by the fact they really happened), two thrilling rides and a load of notorious characters from London’s dark past. What’s not to love? Well, the smell is pretty bad, actually.

You’ll have heard of some of these fearsome faces before (their terrible reputations precede them). Visit Sweeney Todd in his infamous barbershop, have a blast in the Guy Fawkes Gunpowder Plot tunnel, then run from The Ripper through the Whitechapel Labyrinth. Other exciting areas include The Great Fire of London which recreates the 1666 inferno, and the Tyrant Boat Ride where Henry VII sentences you to death.

If you're wanting to save a few quid (and see more London hotspots) discover Merlin’s Magical London Pass.

The Drop Dead ride will see you plummeting down its vertical drop – just close your eyes and imagine you’re in the 18th century gallows. Finish off your day (and take the edge off) at the Victorian Tavern. Tipples include Hex on the Beach and Ripper’s Revenge. Ahh, delicious.
