The London Dungeons in 2013

The London Dungeons has been located on Tooley Street at the London Bridge since it opened in 1974 but the evolution of the attraction has led to the Dungeons being relocated to County Hall, a more central location. The new location means that it is within walking distance from other popular London tourist attractions such as The London Eye which will of course mean visitors can now fit more into their day with less time spent travelling around London.

The London Dungeon’s is a highly interactive experience which is one of the reasons why it stands out from the crowd, it is a fun day out for all ages and now it is going to be even better! As well as being on a bigger site so more action can occur there are 18 completely new shows that will be available so even if you have been to the London Dungeons in the past it will be definitely worth going again to see what’s new and enjoy the new shows and special effects.

The Dungeons will also be welcoming some new historical figures to the fold in March 2013, some of the most iconic people in the history of London and the UK. These are Guy Fawkes so you can now learn about the Gunpowder Plot and the history behind Bonfire Night, Henry VIII and his wives and the fictional Mrs Lovett.
