The London Dungeon

The London Dungeon

USD32 Per Person (2 or more pax)

General Description
Ninety minutes of thrills and chills, are you brave enough to enter the London Dungeon?

Highlights
– Uncover the darkest secrets of London’s history
– Two bloodcurdling scary rides
– Live actors and special effects that bring history to life

The London Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back to the capital’s most perilous past. See, hear, feel and (ahem) smell the chillingly amusing characters of the ‘bad old days’ as they come to life before you.

Brave the Tyrant boat ride as you journey down the Thames in the dark to meet your fate. Step inside Sweeney Todd’s infamous barber shop on Fleet Street and let him give your life a short back and sides.

Then tread cautiously through the streets of Whitechapel, as Jack the Ripper could be lurking just around the corner… You probably think you’ll be safe after that but there’s also the small matter of the Plague, a vengeful Henry VIII and his Executioner and the Torturer who would really like to talk to you.

Then, you’ll be sentenced for your crimes (guilty of course) and sent to Newgate Prison to hang, on Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom.

If you survive all of that, you’ll round off your journey with a visit to the Dungeon Tavern; hear the latest gossip and share a drink with the locals – your first drink is on the house!
