The London Dungeon is a truly must-see attraction for all those interested in the rich history of the English capital, but guests should be warned that some of the sights and stories they hear could be a little disturbing.
Special attractions of the London Dungeon include two rides that take their inspiration from the gruesome past of the city, with The Tyrant boat ride an homage to the last journey of Anne Boleyn on her way to be beheaded, and Drop Dead a recreation of the gruesome acts at Newgate Gallows.
Meanwhile, visitors will be taken on a tour of the grim history of London, complete with a cast of 20 live actors that take part in 18 roving shows as guests traverse the history of the last 1,000 years of the English capital.
For visitors hoping to make their way to this outstanding attraction via public transport, they are particularly well catered for, with several Underground Tube stations within easy walking distance of the London Dungeon:
Waterloo (Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern and Waterloo & City lines)
- Lambeth North (Bakerloo line)
- Westminster (Circle, District and Jubilee lines)
- Charing Cross (Bakerloo and Northern lines)
- Embankment (Bakerloo, Circle, District and Northern lines)
Meanwhile, anyone hoping to reach the area by overground rail can do so via the nearby stations of London Waterloo East and London Charing Cross, which both offer connecting services to the rest of the capital and beyond.
The London Dungeon is open Mondays to Fridays from 10am until 5pm during the off-peak season and until 8pm during the rest of the year.
