More information about The London Dungeon - Priority Entrance tickets


Discover the stories and villains of London’s past at The London Dungeon. Previously based on Tooley Street for 37 years, we’re now next to the Coca-Cola London Eye.

Come with us and meet London’s most infamous villains, rogues and rascals including Henry VIII, Guy Fawkes and Jack the Ripper.

With a full cast of 20 brilliant actors in 18 interactive shows, 360 degree sets, special effects and 2 exciting rides, we’ll take you on a unique 90 minute thrill-filled journey through 1000 years of London’s murky past. Now with new scripts, costumes, make-up and a few surprises – we’re London’s must see attraction.

If you’re brave enough, take the plunge and ride the two new state of the art thrill rides! The Tyrant Boat Ride is a fast flowing boat ride, so hold on during the turbulent journey down the dank River Thames towards your execution. Or maybe Drop Dead is more your style – a ride that plunges the rider three storeys in pitch darkness!

Escape The Great Fire of London
An extra special multi-sensory experience comes to the Dungeon from 21st May. Mark the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire by escaping the chaotic flames and drama on the streets of London. Cooked pigeons fall from the sky, the streets stream with molten lead and St Paul’s is burning to the ground!

The Tavern
End your time in the Dungeon with a visit to a decadent and decidedly dodgy pub – The Tavern. Enjoy a complimentary drink, alcoholic (over 18s only) or non-alcoholic and take a seat in the incredible 360 degree themed set. Patrons will see, hear, feel and smell the drama all around them – no two tables will experience the same thing and guests can stay as long as they like!

Get Into The Christmas Spirit - 3rd to 31st December 
This December John Smith gets ready to receive his fate.Based on the true story of hapless London criminal who was infamously half hanged at Tyburn Tree, visitors will now have the chance to join the baying crowd. Back in 1705 after ‘hanging around’ for a staggering fifteen minutes, incredibly the crowd and his wife began calling for a reprieve. But this time the power is in your hands – will you be a Christmas scrooge or help deliver a miracle this festive season and reprieve John? His fate is down to you!

Guests who successfully liberate John can then celebrate his second chance with a tot of Christmas spirit in the Dungeon’s very own Victorian Tavern experience, with a free festive drink. As the piano belts out the latest music hall tunes, the feisty landlady and landlord will hold court telling tales of London’s Victorian Christmas crimes
