Top sights in London
One of London's top must-see tourist attractions, the Dungeon is dedicated to some of the city's more gruesome past. Here's a little bit of background to whet your appetite before you head along yourself.
The original London Dungeon was established in 1974. It was originally a more educational museum, dedicated to the likes of Boudicca, Mary Tudor and Thomas Becket.
Over the years, the museum has become more of an actor-led, and interactive experience, with tours and rides in place to entertain, excite and frighten visitors.
In 2013 the London Dungeon moved to a new location on the South Bank next to the London Eye to make way for new rides and expansion.
Now tours are led by actors in a fully immersive experience which will take you through some of London's and Britain's macabre past.
Although the museum is still based on historic events, it is more of a fun and exciting tourist attraction for the whole family. However age 8 and up is recommended to enter.

What people are saying about The London Dungeon
Didn't know what to expect but really enjoyed the whole 'scary' experience! Great way to learn about history of London as all the characters make it so entertaining in a very creepy manner which was most enjoyable as well as scary! There are 2 rides within the tour which most people can go on although I didn't attempt the 'drop' at the end. Our 10 year old granddaughter absolutely loved everything about it but I wouldn't recommend it for toddlers. The 'tour' was almost 2 hours which was well worth the money.
Booked on line and printed of all paperwork- arrived at dungeons and no separate queue for online booking already made so had to queue for about 25 mins here to then get tickets and allocated time slot. Then we came back half hour later with an awful lot of people which then took nearly 45 mins before starting. Some acts were good some were poor/ overall was ok but wouldn't visit again
I booked the 48h tour and this included a ship tour to Greenwich. I only boarded the boat in the evening of the first day for the last trip. What nobody told me was that this boat does not go to Greenwich, I only realized later but at that time the voucher was already marked so I could only go to Tower and not the whole way
Fabulous experience, but during my tour I was constantly being shoved out of the way as children were pushing threw. Also half our group was made up of under 12 year olds who talked the whole time the actors were explaining the stories.
The tour was great but it was difficult to find where we were supposed to board the bus the first time. We went to an office who directed us to a bus station who then directed us on a 10minute walk to another area.
