One of London's top must-see tourist attractions, the Dungeon is dedicated to some of the city's more gruesome past. Here's a little bit of background to whet your appetite before you head along yourself.
The original London Dungeon was established in 1974. It was originally a more educational museum, dedicated to the likes of Boudicca, Mary Tudor and Thomas Becket.
Over the years, the museum has become more of an actor-led, and interactive experience, with tours and rides in place to entertain, excite and frighten visitors.
In 2013 the London Dungeon moved to a new location on the South Bank next to the London Eye to make way for new rides and expansion.
Now tours are led by actors in a fully immersive experience which will take you through some of London's and Britain's macabre past.
Although the museum is still based on historic events, it is more of a fun and exciting tourist attraction for the whole family. However age 8 and up is recommended to enter.
The standard opening times are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday; 10:00AM-5:00PM, Thursday; 11:00AM-5:00PM, Saturday & Sunday; 10:00AM-6:00PM.

What People Are Saying About The London Dungeon
The second time I attended, but it was still surprising and freightening as the first time. Great actors !
London dungeons were brilliant, considering my partner hates amateur dramatics but got well into the spirit !... Highly recommended.
When we thought that we had problems, the cusomer service team sprang into action to sort it all out-Well done The family thoroughly enjoyed the day out in london and would recommend this venue to anyone visiting london. history wise- very knowledgeable experience too
The us was great, we picked it up in an odd place, whihc was no problem toeh bus driver even using hte mobile ticket. The audio was great, with music between the speaking notes so we knew we were still plugged in.
We bought the London Pass for 2 days on a 4 days trip so we could bunch up all the attractions that were included in it. Still wish they had the London Eye or The Shard in the list. Great for skipping the lines at Westminster Abbey. Pro tip: if you go to Shakespeare's Globe, go in the morning because usually in the afternoon there are live plays and you cannot get the tour. The book they give you doesn't say this.
