The London Dungeon School Trips
Merlin’s Magical London
Today's lesson will be script writing, set design, and thrilling special effects. The London Dungeon is one of the capital's 'must-see' signature attractions and has been delighting audiences for almost 40 years. The 110 minute journey through 1000 years of London's perilous past brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides in an exciting walk-through experience that lets you see, hear, smell and feel historic London.

What activities are available during group visits?

What size groups do you cater for?
Do you offer on-site classroom facilities?
Our 'Dungeon' inspired education space is fully immersive and includes a performance stage with lighting and special effects. A workshop booking also offers use of the education space for a packed lunch pre/post workshop.
Is there first aid on site?
Yes, we have first aid trained staff available. If you require assistance on the day, please speak with one of our staff members.
Do you offer access for visitors with disabilities?
To ensure that our guests are all as safe as possible we are only able to admit one wheelchair user per hour, at each quarter past the hour. Please be aware we do have restrictions on the Tyrant Boat Ride and the Drop Dead ride. You will also need to book a wheelchair slot in advance of your visit. It is also worth noting that The London Dungeon experience is largely delivered by actors and voiceover audio, often in low light levels. Therefore guests with low vision, who are visually impaired or have hearing difficulties may struggle to experience the attraction fully; however you are able to bring a carer free of charge to assist.
