The London Dungeon - Standard Ticket Tickets
About The London Dungeon - Standard Ticket
Live and breathe London's darkest history… how much can you handle?
The London Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will whisk you way back to the capital's most perilous past. See, hear, feel and (ahem!) smell the chillingly amusing characters of the 'bad old days' as they come to life before you. With thirteen scarily true stories and two thrilling rides, guests will come face to face with London’s most notorious historical characters including Guy Fawkes, Sweeney Todd and Jack the Ripper. Be prepared for a ‘hangy’ ending as you plummet to your doom on the exhilarating vertical drop ride; Drop Dead. Will you lose yourself in fear or in mirth? Either way, it's not looking good for your underwear. Then with your heart still pumping, why not collapse into a well-cushioned chair in our Victorian Tavern? Themed cocktails are available like the spell-binding Hex on the Beach or dangerously delicious Ripper’s Revenge. That will help you forget the terrible deeds of the day!
