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.
JP1964 – “I can see kids liking this a lot more than the adults. When I went round with my children they were actually scared and jumped a few times, but of course we dont do that. And when the actors that are all dressed up try and interact with us we just get emabarrassed, but the kids like it. Those actors really ham it up. I must admit they are quite good at what they do -- as long as they do it away from me!. Some of things I actually thought were probably too gruesome for very young kids. There was one bit where you saw a man get his innards torn out. I wouldnt let my kids watch a movie with that in. But most of it is very mild. There are lost of waxworks of people with the plague and boils etc, and cages with some rats in. Some things are just plain rubbish -- like the room with all the funny mirrors in, like you see at the fun fair. How many "dungeons" have got mirrors in? The rides at the end are okay, altho”
Guest – “Hated it, and couldnt wait for it to end. If it wasn't for our kids who were begging to go, we would never have gone. It turned out to be too scary for my daughter, who I had to hold in my arms after the first few scenes, and not scary enough for my son, who was just bored. If you're an adult then you wont be scared at all, or even amused, as the acting is atrocious. I dont know how they have the cheek to charge what they do. We could have booked a room in a 5-star hotel for the price we paid, its a rip-off!.”
Guest – “Had great time here yesterday, came to London just for this from the staff to the shows, everything was brilliant ,myself and grandaughter enjoyed it very much.Would say not suitable for younger children though.”
