Is the London Dungeon scary?

The London Dungeon is dark, noisy and will show you the scarier side of London’s history.

There are some elements of the experience which are scary and include moments of darkness and occasional jump scares. There are also shows which do not have a scary element and are more light-hearted.

There are areas during the experience that are enclosed, so if you suffer from claustrophobia or panic attacks, speak to a member of the team who will be able to direct you to a more calming area. You can leave the attraction at any time if you feel overwhelmed. 

What is the history of the London Dungeons?

The London Dungeon opened in 1974, originally located under the railway arches in Tooley Street. The immersive exhibition, depicting some of the darkest parts of British history, initially began as a free-flow walkthrough attraction with thrilling shows. Over the years, the attraction underwent developments, including the addition of new shows and rides, and has since been re-designed into an actor-led live tour experience.

The London Dungeon moved to the South Bank in 2013, where you can now discover exhibits, interactives shows and gory tales through the 1000 years of London’s historic past.
