The London Dungeon

Book The London Dungeon as part of your THORPE PARK break!

From March 2013, The London Dungeon moves locations to the eerie underground vaults beneath the South Bank's County Hall. Boasting a reinvention which brings a bigger, bolder and better new edge to this iconic attraction, the Dungeon has undergone an astonishing transformation as part of a multi-million pound investment.

With even more of the audience interaction that families love, two jaw-dropping new thrill rides and fun-filled shocks round every corner, the improved London Dungeon offers tantalising tricks and treats on your visit.

What's new? The new rides and shows offer more spine-tingling surprises, the scripts and actors are more scarily funny than ever, and the capital's dark historical characters — from Jack the Ripper to Sweeney Todd — come to life in dynamic and colourful new ways.

Expect a mixed bag of tricks and treats on your visit to the Dungeons.

The tour lasts 90 minutes and there are live actors waiting to jump out on you at every turn as well as a number of rides designed to really put you on edge.

A family day out to The London Dungeons is great fun for older children and adults. The Dungeons say that their attractions are not suitable for youngsters or those of a nervous disposition so we advise you don't take very young or sensitive children with you. If, however, you are confident that your little ones will be fine, the Dungeons have excellent buggy access so you won't miss a thing.
