Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Have you been trying to enter the Houses of Parliament in a suit of armour? Keeping a pigsty in front of your house? Or handling a salmon in suspicious circumstances? Then you’re in trouble because all of the above are technically illegal. To mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, The London Dungeon is putting some of our most nonsensical laws on trial. Throughout June, visitors to the attraction will witness fast paced show trails at Judge Lord Wendy Farqhuar's court. The Judge is fond of dispensing the death penalty and defendants are likely to find themselves condemned to 'take the drop' on the dungeon's Drop Dead Drop Ride to Doom. Even visitors pronounced 'not guilty' will find themselves among bad company because encountering bad 'uns like Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd is what a visit to the London Dungeon is all about.
