The London Dungeons was our last point of call on our recent trip to London and number 15 on our Merlin Challenge List. The London Eye, and Sealife Aquarium are all at the Embankment so it was easy to get from one to the other.
I have no pictures from this attraction as “Picture Boxes, and Talky things!” are not allowed. As the name suggests this attraction is not for the faint hearted, it is full of smells and sights that smaller children would not enjoy. The boy however has been relishing the fact that he survived both York and Warwick Castle Dungeons and this was going to be his 3rd.
The London Dungeons is the largest of the attraction of its kind in the UK, and has only recently been moved to its current home. You can tell that it has been more purpose-built than the York one as the groups that go through are much bigger. We joined a tour with about 30 other unsuspecting guests, who are treated to torture. Yes it was Dad M’s turn again to have his bits chopped off again. With tales of the Plague, and Gung farmers as well as Jack the Ripper and Sweeny Todd. The London Dungeons is a very unpleasant place. There are also two rides within the attraction, a boat ride, beware its backwards! and a drop ride. The boy didn’t want to do the drop ride as was feeling a bit delicate, but both me and Dad took our turns.
I have enjoyed the dungeons more than I thought I would, it’s not too scary as I have a good idea what is coming, I haven’t been picked on, and its funny when Dad M keeps getting chosen for torture!
