I never bothered visiting the old Dungeons in the past after hearing some pretty rotten reviews about them, so imagine my surprise at thoroughly enjoying our visit to the new site yesterday (02/03/2014)! I went with a friend from out of town and we had a good laugh: the whole experience was much better than I was expecting. Of the characters, I was especially fond of the judge and his slightly unhinged clerk ("Coming, Duchess!), Mary Jane Kelly and Mrs Lovett/Sweeny Todd’s stammering and terrified assistant. The disappearing/reappearing landlady of the Ten Bells pub was cleverly done and of the projections, I enjoyed the two plague-ridden corpses bickering in their coffins the best. The interaction between the characters and the “prisoners” (namely us) was fun: cheesy in a darkly humorous way (if you subscribe to gallows humour, you’ll most likely enjoy this) and the costumes and make up were great. The majority of the actors exceeded my expectations (Mary Jane Kelly and the Judge and his nutty clerk were especially good). The executioner’s drop at the end had us shrieking with pleasure and terror. My only criticisms were that the demarcated queuing area (just as you come in, to the left) was in desperate need of better lighting - it was so dark, I had to use my iTorch to guide me through without walking into the chains. Also, the second half of the boat ride was underwhelming. However, despite that, everything ran smoothly and it was obvious that a lot of thought and planning had gone into designing and setting up the venue. All in all, it was a fun hour and a half (or thereabouts) being guided through the underbelly of London’s dark history. I’d recommend booking online in advance - we did and avoided the ever-growing queue waiting outside in the cold.

Way too expensive for a predictable, cheesy experience. Save your money for the Imax instead.

Great fun! Booked online priority tickets cheaper and faster entry. Very mont pytrhon funny with some clever jumpy bits
