There are nine Dungeons: London, Edinburgh, Blackpool and York in the UK, Amsterdam, Berlin and Hamburg in Europe, and San Francisco in the US. No two Dungeons are the same and each has its own unique set of shows and rides. The Dungeons are not for the faint-hearted. If you are a sensitive type, it’s fair to say you won’t enjoy a trip into any of The Dungeons, but if you can’t wait to learn all about Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror or what life was like during the Plague Years, you are in for a real treat.
Each of The Dungeons features stories and rides related to local history, so you’ll meet Jack the Ripper in London Dungeons, Burke and Hare in Edinburgh Dungeons, and Dick Turpin and the Vikings in York Dungeons. A trip down into any of The Dungeons is a taste of the Dark Side of history. It’s horrible, scary, and always fun.
A tour around any of the Dungeons is not just a matter of staring at some gruesome exhibits. Actors take on the role of the most infamous characters from history and many of the exhibits require audience participation. There are also rides, special effects, puzzles, storytelling, a few shocks, and plenty of laughs. Younger kids might find it all a bit too scary, but older kids and adults will love it!

What is the Recommended Minimum Age of Visitors?
We think children 12 and over will enjoy the Dungeons, but younger kids are welcome at the discretion of the adult accompanying them. Children aged 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Be aware that some of the shows are very dark and loud noises, which some children may find frightening. If your child does find it all a bit too much, you can leave the attraction at any time; ask a member of staff to help you find the way out safely.
Can I Take Photographs in The Dungeons?
Photography is not allowed inside the Dungeons, but official photographs ate taken at various points inside the attraction, which you can purchase before you leave. You better start practicing your scary face right now!
When is the Best Time to Visit the Dungeons?
