What You Can Expect

London Dungeon Entrance Ticket

London Dungeon

Make your way to the London Dungeon and join the fast-access queue. As you cross the threshold, allow yourself to be transported back to the most grisly periods of London’s long history – all based on true events! Top-notch theatrical actors greet you at every turn, reenacting disturbing histories such as Jack the Ripper’s murderous rampage through the Whitechapel slums and Sweeney Todd’s to-die-for coiffure. Come face-to-face with the bloodthirsty barber – and butcher! – of Fleet Street, but try to keep your head and not end up in a meat pie! 

As you make the approximate 90-minute walk through the dungeons, experience highlights (or lowlights) of London’s history through exceptional stages and special effects. Rile at the smells and sights of the plague and experience the doomed fate of Henry VIII’s victims as you ride through Traitors’ Gate to your death. Learn about the Great Fire of 1666, and discover the absurdity of 18th century prosecution in an entertaining simulated trial – complete with mad judge! (Please see full list of attractions in the Itinerary below; subject to change)

Don't leave without taking a heart-stopping ride on Extremis: Drop Ride to Doom! Test your nerve as you become a victim at the gallows. At the mercy of the hangman, experience the final moments of terror and the spike of adrenaline as the floor opens and you plummet into darkness! 

End your visit with a stop into the newly opened Victorian Pub. Soak up the spectacle of 19th century London revelry as you sip on a beer, gin cocktail or non-alcoholic beverage (one drink included with admission; additional drinks available for purchase).

Please note: This ticket is only available for purchase online and guarantees entry to the London Dungeon within 45 minutes. Tickets purchased at the door will require you to book for the next available slot, which could be much later in the day.

Itinerary

Jack the Ripper
The year is 1888, and fear rises inside you as you enter Jack the Ripper's Whitechapel. As you wander the stinking slums, the true horror of his terrible crimes is revealed in bloody, graphic detail. And then a scream, the flash of a cloak and an evil smile as you come face to face with Jack the Ripper himself ... will you survive?

Extremis: Drop Ride to Doom!
Embark upon your last journey on the brand new Extremis: Drop Ride to Doom! At the mercy of the hangman, you are at the very point of death and the end is drawing near. Taste the fear and feel the adrenaline pump as the trapdoor opens and your heart shoots into your throat as you drop, screaming into the darkness below. Note: ride restrictions apply.

Sweeney Todd
Are you brave enough to cross the threshold of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street? A short back and sides (1785-style) could be just the thing to round off your visit—but will you get more than you bargained for?

Labyrinth of the Lost
Enter the mirror maze of the Labyrinth of the Lost at your peril! Discover the ancient crypt of All Hallows by the Tower...Every treacherous turn takes you further into the realm of lost souls...Will you ever get out?!

Traitor! Boat Ride to Hell
Step aboard the scarier than ever boat ride - sentenced to death by a terrifyingly eccentric 18th century judge, you pass through traitor's gate and begin a spine tingling voyage into the depths of the Dungeon to meet your doom!

The Great Plague
Winter, early 1665. London is in turmoil as the dreaded bubonic plague spreads disease and death among the terrified population. No one knows its cause, only its horrifying agonizing consequences.

The Great Fire of London
Journey back to 1666 and face the fire-ravaged streets of old London Town. Dare you run into the gauntlet of flames to escape the great fire or will you perish within its unforgiving power?

Myself, my husband and 2 teenage daughters really enjoyed this. We all had a ball.
My daughters hang on to me for dear life all the way thru. Great performance by all the actors..
They learned about the history of London and didn't even realize it.

Viator: Although it is called Skip the Line, you end up waiting in line to replace the printed voucher with an actual ticket (Since you need to specify the time of the show), but they do save you some $$$ from other online prices.

London Dungeon: Fun family experience! Very original way of mixing comedy into a scary environment.

The dungeons are a great introduction to the history of London so that people can appreciate more of other true historic sites. The pace is good and you never get bored. Only issue as a tourist you need to find a place to print the ticket bought online as it won't be accepted shown on phone. ..
