6 tips for visiting the The London Dungeon

1
Don't be too sensitiveAt the London Dungeon, live shows and rides center around dark themes like witch burnings, the plague or conspiracies - so nothing for the faint-hearted! Also, don't be shy. The actors take their roles as nasty dungeon keepers seriously and try to tease the guests (don't worry, touching is forbidden). Also, you mustn’t have any problems with getting a little wet from time to time. If that's too much action for you, you might be more interested in the horror cabinets of Madame Tussauds London, not far from the London Dungeon.

Save money with combination ticketsIf you want to visit several attractions in London at once, London Dungeon tickets offer combination opportunities with other attractions. Depending on what you're in the mood for, you can combine your visit to this chamber of horrors with the spectacular Ferris wheel London Eye, or with the world-famous collection of wax figures Madame Tussauds London, the SEA LIFE London or Shrek's Adventure.
3
Read up on the history for a bitThe attractions at the London Dungeon are all based on real historical events since the late Middle Ages. If you don't know much about British history yet, we'll give you an overview of the most important details about the background of the attractions further down on this page.
4
See more of LondonAfter an adrenaline-pumping visit to the London Dungeon, take a stroll past the Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe to Borough Market. If you're planning a big city tour anyway, we recommend London's Hop-On Hop-Off Tours.
5
Stop by on HalloweenA chamber of horrors like this would be nothing without Halloween events. In October, the London Dungeon usually comes up with some particularly spooky shows. Depending on your schedule flexibility, a visit is particularly worthwhile in autumn.
6
Visit the London Dungeon spinoffsDon't have a London trip planned at the moment, but you're still in the mood for something spooky? In that case, the Dungeon is present in many other European cities that you might find more convenient - including the Hamburg Dungeon and the Berlin Dungeon, the Amsterdam Dungeon or the The Edinburgh Dungeon.

Highlights at the London Dungeon

The London Dungeon is an interactive attraction that brings the darkest chapters of London history to life through live actors, special effects and rides. Here's a brief rundown of the highlights that await you there.

Witches, plague and torture

The early modern period was anything but pleasant. Women were accused of witchcraft and executed, the plague decimated populations in big cities, and many faced oppression through torture and execution. Accordingly, the 17th century is the perfect setting for the backdrops and the various shows at the London Dungeon. Guests are presented a wide selection of gruesome stories, such as The Torture Chamber, The Plague Doctor or Curse of the Witch.

The Tyrant Boat Ride

In addition to live shows, the London Dungeon also offers traditional rides, which of course have been given a spooky twist. The Tyrant Boat Ride is a boat ride in which you follow the last hours of Queen Anne Boleyn's life. Her husband Henry VIII had her executed in the Tower of London in 1536. To this day, it is said that her decapitated ghost haunts the place.

Jack the Ripper & Whitechapel Labyrinth

Jack the Ripper is probably the most notorious murderer in British history. Accordingly, he should not be missing in the London Dungeon. On the one hand, his terrifying deeds are recited like a ghost story in an attraction of the same name. But if you can stomach more action, you can also try to escape Jack the Ripper in the so-called Whitechapel Maze.

Guy Fawkes' Gunpowder Plot

Guy Fawkes' Gunpowder Plot transports guests via a live show, including virtual reality, to 1605, when conspirator Guy Fawkes planned to blow up the British Parliament. At the time, that was prevented and Guy Fawkes was executed - but the show at the London Dungeon offers an alternate history scenario. Outside of Great Britain, Guy Fawkes has not long ago gained new fame because his mask is considered an identifying symbol for hacker groups like Anonymous.

Escape Room

The new decade has created a hype for Escape Rooms worldwide; therefore, in 2023, the London Dungeon has also opened its very own Escape Room. Guy Fawkes is once again responsible for the story of the attraction. As co-conspirators, you must escape from the Tower of London dungeon in time by solving puzzles as a group. Two to six people are allowed to take part.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the London Dungeon accessible for disabled persons?

Due to the nature of the attraction, only one wheelchair is allowed in the building at a time. Therefore, a wheelchair timeslot must be booked.
