The London Dungeon

About the London Dungeon

Set in Westminster’s County Hall, the London Dungeon is an interactive experience which celebrates the gory aspects of the city’s rich history. Featuring scenes from the times of Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd, the attraction uses live actors and props to recreate the capital’s most notorious events. Opened in 1974 as a Tooley Street museum of the macabre, the Dungeon has evolved to place its actors and audience centre-stage. Play the part of a traitor being sent across the Thames to the gallows, take a seat in Sweeney Todd’s barber’s chair or go back to 1666 to flee the city’s flames in the Dungeon’s newest set, ‘Escape the Great Fire of London’!
