Not really amongst my personal favourites of things to do in London but my boys LOVED this place when they were 11 and 8. Kids will take sheer delight in the screams, blood and guts stinky smells and downright wickedness of London's heinous past - all disgustingly and horrifically recreated here in full gory Technicolour for their visual and aural delectation!

Situated in Tooley Street just under London Bridge Station - the queues can be really long in summer and the pavement outside the entrance gets quite crowded and chaotic. Once inside you will be treated to scenes of horror from the plague, torture and beheadings to name a few and dungeon guides (actors) will scare the living daylights out of you if you dare to ask them anything (but it's all very tongue in cheek so don't take them seriously!).
A visit here now includes the "Boat ride to Hell" which is a new treat that wasn't available last time I came.
Yes... definitely a fun afternoon for the kids... but expect sleepless nights later!

Tickets are 15.50 for adults.
Have a look at the website for more info!
