London Dungeon (The)
This is not so much a museum as a gruesome reproduction of all things that illustrate the darker side of European history. Located in the Riverside Building of County Hall, with ghastly sounds seeping through the front door, this is a sort of haunted house for adults. It has won the Best Unusual Venue tourism award several times in the past. Wander through rooms depicting royal executions, vicious murders, various torture and execution devices, and even the Great Fire of London. The addition of Hollywood-style sound effects and lighting is also a nice touch. The newest addition is the Labyrinth of the Lost - the world's largest and scariest mirror maze. It's all unbelievably tacky, yet good fun in a morbid sort of way. Be warned, however, that its probably not suitable for small children, and all children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Opening hours vary seasonally.
I thought the London Dungeons was marvellous.
I am 12 on valentines day and am goin wid 4 of mi frnds.
The freefall ride is scary, if your a wimp like me and I luvd the sweeney todd part.
The Jack the ripper bit is so startling, it was absolutely unbelievable.
This the place to go if you have children because as they are havin a great time in the mega gory exhibits, they are learning some british history.
I didn't know that Jack the ripper remained unknown to this day.
I hope I have convinced you to go, I promise that you will always remember it!!!

When you hear the name ' The London Dungeon', you are expecting something close to the Tower of London. It is thte cheeziest horror house I've seen. They take you from the time of the Black Death, to Jack the Ripper.
As fake as everything looked, it is still graphic when it comes to the Jack the Ripper sequence. If you do choose to waste your money, do not take young children.
Go see the Tower of London instead.
i went to London on a trip with my school we went to many attractions but the best attraction for me was The London Dungeon. Allthough it was a little expensive, it was worth the money! As everyone else said the queues are VERY long....yes it was when i went but it was our turn to go inside with in 15 mins.!! We went inside and screamed as we had our photo took where the staff were telling us how to pose....the picture turned out to be a great success!
Our group contained 30-40 kids and 5 adults and we all enjoyed our day out ...
The staff were absoulutely amazing, their costumes//make-up, the put on voices and the art to scare. I don't understand what put other people off because it was great.!
i really dis-liked this attraction. i feel it was poor and a very dull experience. The service and food was very disturbing and the displays were poor. This attraction is boring and needs to be improved magerly! i am never going back.
The place was way overpriced, not very scary, and smelled of urine and feces throughout. The gift shop was okay, but the exhibits were painfully amateurish and poorly presented. The log ride? What a joke. No quality whatsoever. Please don't waste your time standing in line and your money on this smelly, no-better-than-a-middle-school-Halloween-fun-house place. It was horrible, but certainly not the type of horrible you should pay good money for.
London is full of real and historic sites...why waste time on such a tacky tourist trap? Want dungeons? Visit the Tower of London.
And parents, for pity sake, why take your kids to someplace that presents all this gruesome plastic gore?
ive experianced this place many a times it was fun thriling educational and a great enviroment which sets the scene very well london dungeon is suitible for all the family but teens and adults may enjoy it the most with its humor mixed with its horror i rate this top marks
