|About these ratings|
Consider buying tickets to the London Dungeon to survey the city's darker, more grisly history. With theatrical storytelling and a dash of humor, the London Dungeon strives to school its brave guests on the city's infamous villains, like Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd, and Guy Fawkes. You'll also learn about some of the city's significant historical events, like the Great Plague and the Great Fire of London. With two underground rides, 360-degree sets, and just the right amount of cheesy antics, the London Dungeon is a must for anyone interested in the city's macabre narrative.
Though the Dungeon boasts state-of-the-art special effects, for many recent visitors it's the commitment of the actors that makes a visit here worthwhile. "The staff are brilliant and throw themselves into the characters," one TripAdvisor user says. If you do carve out some itinerary time for a Dungeon visit, prepare for long lines and high admission prices. And although the London Dungeon is geared toward families, parents are advised to use their discretion when considering bringing their young children. Also be aware that the London Dungeon has recently relocated to County Hall, on the city's South Bank, right next to the London Eye. Get your thrills at the London Dungeon Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m.to 4:30 p.m., Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. You can purchase tickets at the door, or save a little coin by buying online (plus a reduction in queue time). At the door, adults pay £25.20 GBP (about $42), while youths 15 years and younger pay £19.80 GBP (about $33). Find the London Dungeon off the Waterloo Tube station.
