Departure Point

The London Dungeon, Westminster Bridge Road County Hall, London SE1 7PB England
Make your way to the London Dungeon and join the queue. As you cross the threshold, allow yourself to be transported back to the most grisly periods of London’s long history—all based on true events! Top-notch theatrical actors greet you at every turn, reenacting disturbing histories such as Jack the Ripper’s murderous rampage through the Whitechapel slums and Sweeney Todd’s to-die-for coiffure. Come face-to-face with the bloodthirsty barber—and butcher—of Fleet Street, but try to keep your head and not end up in a meat pie! 

As you make your way through the dungeons, experience highlights (or lowlights) of London’s history through exceptional stages and special effects. Rile at the smells and sights of the plague and experience the doomed fate of Henry VIII’s victims as you ride through Traitors’ Gate to your death. Learn about the Great Fire of 1666, and discover the absurdity of 18th-century prosecution in an entertaining simulated trial—complete with a mad judge! (Please see full list of attractions in the Itinerary below; subject to change)

Don't leave without taking a heart-stopping ride on Drop Dead: Drop Ride! Test your nerve as you become a victim at the gallows. At the mercy of the hangman, experience the final moments of terror and the spike of adrenaline as the floor opens and you plummet into darkness! 

End your visit with a stop into the Tavern. Soak up the spectacle of 19th-century London revelry as you sip on a beer, gin cocktail or non-alcoholic beverage (one drink included with admission; additional drinks available for purchase).

Please note: This ticket is only available for purchase online and guarantees entry to the London Dungeon. Tickets purchased at the door will require you to book for the next available slot, which could be much later in the day.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
The London Dungeon
The London Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back to the capital’s most perilous past. See, hear, feel and (ahem) smell the chillingly amusing characters of the ‘bad old days’ as they come to life before you. Brave the Tyrant boat ride as you journey down the Thames in the dark to meet your fate. Step inside Sweeney Todd’s infamous barber shop on Fleet Street and let him give your life a short back and sides. Then tread cautiously through the streets of Whitechapel, as Jack the Ripper could be lurking just around the corner… You probably think you’ll be safe after that but there’s also the small matter of the Plague, a vengeful Henry VIII and his Executioner and the Torturer who would really like you to talk. Then, you’ll be sentenced for your crimes (guilty of course) and sent to Newgate Prison to hang, on Drop Dead: Drop Ride. On the off chance you survive all of that, you’ll round off your journey with a visit to the Dungeon Tavern; hear the latest gossip with the locals! -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- • An unmissable live walk through experience • Full on 360 sets with gripping storytelling • 19 interactive shows, 20 live actors, 1000 years of history • State of the art theming and special effects • 2 thrilling underground rides • From Jack the Ripper to Sweeney Todd, The Plague to the Great Fire of London – it’s cutting edge storytelling at Its best! • Allow 110 minutes for this experience

We are in the US, all our reservations were canceled to include our airfares, hotels, and tours. With the exception of this place! We tried to contact them and all efforts have been to no avail, there not even open, yet we received our tickets for May 3 and now this review. Really! No cancellation fee and they're not even open, cannot even reschedule, what a racket. Bad business tactics and strategies. Buyer beware!

Went early, pre-booked and instant access. Short wait at the beginning but it was worth it beginning to end. Scary, informative and lots of fun. Dark and mysteries and educational.Loved every minute. So much better value than the Waxworks

I took my two sons age 14 and 12. We had an amazing time. There were kids in the group who had obviously been before as they kept saying what would happen next! After asking them nicely to keep quiet so as not to spoil it for others, they did. The actors and story telling was brilliant. Would definitely recommend to anybody.
