London is a city with a rich history. The London Dungeons is an interactive and amusing method devised to teach and enlighten visitors as to the gruesome and gory side of London’s history spanning over 2000 years.
Situated near Tooley Street, the London Dungeons are a popular tourist destination. The site functions as a tour, which takes roughly one and a half hours to complete.
This time period is spent visiting one scene of history after another, filled with special effects, live actors, interactive demonstrations and rides.
The fun begins with the Labyrinth, consisting of a mirrored maze featured in a crypt. From here the tour is led to the time of the Great Plague. This was when the whole of London was infested with the Bubonic Plague which killed so many. The decomposing corpses and grotesque smells which the visitor will encounter here will no doubt put the visitor off, however next on the list is the Great Fire of London period, which may have you screaming with terror.
Other interesting exhibits include the judgement, where the visitors are charged with crimes and sentenced to death and then take the Boat Ride to Hell journey (fashioned after the ride to the Tower of London through the Traitor’s Gate). Also featured are the Sweeny Todd exhibit and the hilarious Drop Noose ride. At this exhibit the visitors are faced with nooses which are put over their head and then they drop down – cameras on the wall capture each visitor’s hysterical look as this happens.
If you are visiting London you should definitely not pass up an opportunity to visit this entertaining attraction. A traveller seeking London serviced apartments may find an ideal central location in the Ascott London Mayfair. This kind of Mayfair serviced apartment offers its visitors the opportunity to revel in luxurious living whilst taking in the sights and sounds of London.
