  • London Dungeon Entrance Tickets

    1. London Dungeon Entrance Tickets

    The London Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back to the capital’s most perilous past. See, hear and feel the chillingly amusing characters of the 'bad old days’ as they come to life before you. 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. End your visit by being sentenced for your crimes and sent to Newgate Prison Ride to Doom. On the off chance you survive all of that, round off your journey with a visit to the Dungeon Tavern; hear the latest gossip and share a drink with the locals.

    Enjoyed it very much - only a small group of people which was ideal - staff completely threw themselves into the characters to make it very entertaining for all ages. Thank you

    The actual route aside from not seeing the front of Buckingham Palace was good. What really let the whole experience down was the headphone commentary. Our group found this to be childish and informative in any tangible way. This tour would be greatly improved if there was a continual commentary talking about all of the sites and places of interest that we passed. Scrap the quiz and the mindless banter. No one is interested.

    Good value for money however when we went to the first one they didn’t tell us how to or that we needed to book time slots for the rest of the attractions meaning there was no times left for most when we did find out (found out by trying to go to the next and got turned away) did mess our plans up a bit. It also doesn’t say anything about booking other time slots in the description or anything.
