Did you know… The London Dungeon is one of the capital’s biggest draws, attracting 600,000 visitors a year.
The London Dungeons are a gory celebration of everything that is mean and grisly in the world of crime and punishment. Waxworks from Madame Tussaud’s document torture through the centuries, with gruesome displays of disembowelling, hangings and beheadings – complete with sound effects!
The London Dungeon has several large-scale re-enactments, like the Great Fire of London. This million pound exhibit lets you to walk through the black and burnt-out streets.
The Great Plague of the 17th-century is another new feature – see the piled up rubbish in disease-ridden streets, and rats running around the carcases.
Let Jack the Ripper lead you through a terrifying tour of 1888, around the bloody streets of Whitechapel, where he disembowelled his victims.
Or buy a ticket for the Tower of London barge ride through the Traitor’s Gate, and up to the chopping block on Tower Green.

- Drummerboy – “The London Dungeon has got to be the most overrated attraction in the whole of London. By the time I’d bought a ticket and a guidebook I only had a few pennies left out of the thirty quid! When I went there as a kid I kind of remember it as being more like a museum, where you could walk around at your own pace looking at all the gruesome exhibits, but it’s more like a guided tour. You get led from scene to scene in a group of about twenty people. It just seemed like one long endless walk to me. I was actually quite glad when it was over, to be honest… continued.”
