London Dungeon

KidRated’s London Dungeon Top Tips:

Come and encounter a terrifyingly fun time at The London Dungeon, a live-action journey through the last 1000 years of London’s history! It contains 19 sets, using a talented cast of live actors, special effects and scenery to produce a thrillingly real representation of the stories it tells.


There’s no end to the thrills provided on this walk-through experience. Smell, see and feel the fears that truly come alive as you walk around the dungeons. Travel the traitor’s route to execution along the Thames in the Dungeon’s newly-improved boat ride, The Tyrant.


Get a close shave by Sweeney Todd at Fleet Street, escape from the Great Fire of London, or head to the Ten Bells where Jack the Ripper’s victims once drank.


Next, test your navigational skills in Whitechapel’s labyrinth streets to see if you can outrun the Ripper himself! Finally, finish your journey at the Dungeon outside Newgate Prison by facing the hangman’s noose… will you make it out of your 90 minute trip alive?

Teen Verdict

Things to do, places to go for kids and teenagers - cool, academic, fun and entertaining in London and beyond with KidRated


I’ve been to London Dungeons a few times and they never fail to impress. As I’ve gotten older, I’m slowly becoming a little more immune to some of the scares but nevertheless, this place always gets my heart thumping. Unlike a haunted house or spooky museum, the thing I love here is that it’s a full 90 mins of immersive scares. I’d recommend it to any teen that likes a good spook.

  • While the actors are quite funny this is also quite scary so it’s best for teens.
  • There are two rides and on one you do get wet. The other ride makes your tummy leap and your hair stand on end (you’ll photographic proof after!)
  • Before you start your tour you do have to pass live cockroaches and rats. They are safely behind glass and the braver souls can pop their head up inside the rat enclosure.
