London Dungeon Tours

The immersive London Dungeon transports visitors into London’s past for a theatrical journey into the city’s underbelly. Participants make their way through a series of shadowy rooms, where costumed actors reveal the most horrible tales from the capital’s history, including accounts of the gory murders committed by Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd, the failed Gunpowder Plot of Guy Fawkes, and the Great Fire of London. The meticulous sets, spooky special effects, and thrilling rides make for a memorable, shriek-out-loud experience.
 
The Basics
The London Dungeon is a fun, if not somewhat frightening, way to learn about some of the more macabre chapters from London’s history. Ticket holders will find a cast of charismatic characters on hand to guide them through the 90-minute experience. Because of the attraction’s popularity, it’s a good idea to purchase a ticket in advance, thus avoiding waiting in line or potentially being assigned a slot much later in the day. A London Dungeon entrance ticket can be combined with a Thames River hop-on hop-off cruise, which stops at several locations along the waterfront, including Westminster Pier, Tower Pier, Greenwich Pier, and the London Eye Pier.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The dungeon can be somewhat scary and may not be suitable for young kids, those with a nervous disposition, or those who suffer from claustrophobia.
  • The tour contains two optional rides: a boat ride and a sudden-drop ride.
 
How to Get There
Find the London Dungeon on the South Bank near the London Eye and the Sea Life London Aquarium. Waterloo Station—which is served by the Northern, Jubilee, and Bakerloo Tube lines, as well as mainline rail—is only about a 5-minute walk away.
 
When to Get There
The London Dungeon is particularly popular among families with older kids, and it tends to be busy on weekends and during summer. Book a ticket in advance to ensure you get a suitable time slot.
 
The London Dungeon Rides
The London Dungeon features two rides. The Tyrant Boat Ride mimics the experiences of 16th-century royal traitors who would have been transported down the foggy, rat-infested River Thames on their way to Traitors Gate at the Tower of London. The second ride, Drop Dead, takes guests through a public hanging, with participants facing a judge, priest, and executioner before experiencing the dreaded free-fall drop.
