London Dungeon Easy to get to? Good for kids? Value for money? Worth a visit?203

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!

Dungeon exhibits

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.

  •  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.”
