The Basics

The London Dungeon is a fun, if not somewhat frightening, way to learn about some of the more macabre chapters from London’s history. Ticket holders will find a cast of charismatic characters on hand to guide them through the 90-minute experience. Because of the attraction’s popularity, it’s a good idea to purchase a ticket in advance, thus avoiding waiting in line or potentially being assigned a slot much later in the day. A London Dungeon entrance ticket can be combined with a Thames River hop-on hop-off cruise, which stops at several locations along the waterfront, including Westminster Pier, Tower Pier, Greenwich Pier, and the London Eye Pier.

Big Bus London Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise
A great way to go thru the whole city. Buses were on time generally and clean. Only reason for not giving the 5 stars is some of the bus drivers could be more helpful and open. The staff on the street at the bus stops definitely were!

Wish I had only booked one day instead of 3, but it was good for day one to get the lay of the land see the big sights. My kids were not interested in the audio tour but I liked it.

Big Bus London Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise
The history of the city was great, stop location was well marked with the Big Bus name. The boat ride gave you different look of the city from a distant. I’ll recommend trip to others

The London Dungeon Standard Ticket
A great tour. Very funny and the actors were very good. Bit of a wait to be let in. There might have been an accident, but they took care of it without everyone finding out.

The London Dungeon Standard Ticket
Loved this!! Traveled with 15 and 18 year olds. We all thought it was great! Engaging, funny and interactive. The actors were great. Worth the price. The day we went the boat ride was closed. I wasn’t even aware there was a boat ride but it was a bit of a bummer. Everything else was perfect. Good use of our time. The groups are big and we had a few obnoxious people in ours but we just rolled with it. I would recommend this event.

The London Dungeon Rides

The London Dungeon features two rides. The Tyrant Boat Ride mimics the experiences of 16th-century royal traitors who would have been transported down the foggy, rat-infested River Thames on their way to Traitors Gate at the Tower of London. The second ride, Drop Dead, takes guests through a public hanging, with participants facing a judge, priest, and executioner before experiencing the dreaded free-fall drop.
