The London Dungeon: fear is a funny thing

Emdad Rahman

Situated right next to the London Eye, The London Dungeon brings together a spooky and very talented cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides 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.

The London Dungeon is scary fun for everyone, except very young guests and wimps! (The recommended age is eight years old and above). It’s particularly brilliant for people who can plan ahead and book online: not only will you save money, you’ll also get to feel smug on the day.

The London Dungeon is one of the capital’s “must-see” signature attractions – delighting audiences for almost 40 years. It’s a 90 minute journey through 1,000 years of London’s murky past. Visitors walk through the Dungeon, moving from show to show, guided by professional actors. The shows are based on real London history and legends (minus the boring bits). You’ll get up close and personal with sinister characters including Jack the Ripper and infamous barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd.

It’s a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full on authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you’ll pass through the Whitechapel Labyrinth of misty East London streets, plague-ravaged houses, the fearsome torture chamber… and see (and feel!) what could have been if Guy Fawkes had succeeded. It’s better than a sightseeing or boring museum tour of London!

We loved it and I know you will too. Here’s why:
•full on 360 sets with gripping storytelling;
•18 interactive shows, 20 live actors, 1000 years of history;
•state of the art theming and special effects;
•two awesome underground rides;
•laughs, screams and cutting edge storytelling.

The London Dungeon is a great way to spend some family time together during weekends and school holidays. Make things easy on yourself and book in advance!

Guests who are under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult over 18 years of age. For more information, go to: www.thedungeons.com
