The London Dungeon is one of several private, for-profit museums in Britain dedicated to that country's bloody past. NOT for the squeamish! If you want to explore the dark, seamy, unsettlling side of British history, this is for you.

The exhibits deal with torture,executions, heinous murders, the Great Fire of 1666, Jack the Ripper, early medicine, and other subjects which some would rather just forget. While visiting the Southwark area, you may want to check this out.

If you enjoy this, go down the street a few blocks and visit the Clink Prison Museum. It's not quite as impressive, but was at one time a real prison.

Address: 28-34 Tooley Street, London SE1 2SZ
Directions: On the south bank of the Thames. From Tower Bridge, go south on Tower Bridge Road, then right on Tooley Street. Tube: London Bridge.
