Okay, so this was hokey. It's not a real tourist sight. It's not historical. It isn't real. But damn it, it was fun. Also on the South side, right by the London Bridge station, was the London Dungeon (not to be confused with the London Bridge Experience, which is a cheap copy-cat). It's basically like a haunted house, but with a little history and a little urban legend thrown into the mix. You're taken through the Black Plague, given a close shave by Sweeney Todd, shown the mutilated bodies of Jack the Ripper's victims, sentenced on trumped-up charges, and subsequently hanged. It was really fun. The line, however, was not fun. It was about an hour long. If you want to go, I recommend buying a ticket online: http://www.thedungeons.com/ . They also offer combined tickets that get you onto other attractions like the London Eye and Madame Tussaud's, which are cheaper than paying for everything separately.

You like scary things, go to the London Dungeon. You´ll find things about Jack the Ripper and about the big fire 1666. Ther are walking people around who want to scare you. There is also w waterride in it. You´ll get to see a movie and they aregoingto tell you storys about Jack the Ripper and so on.
Going thru takes about two hours I would say.
The queue is quite long at the beginning so take your time. If you go with a group (min. 20), you can call them and you´ll get in thru a groupintrance. So that will be faster. I think it´s possible to get timetickets, which are more expensive but they tell you when to get in, for example between 11 and 12. Something like this.

Situated in Tooley Street very close to London Bridge Station. This place is part history, part show. It covers such history as Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper, the fire of London. In fact the stomping ground of the Ripper wasn't so far away. It was once the underground arches of a railway and as such has had a dubious past - murder, prostitution, death and disease. The themes are torture, horrible acts in general, terrible things that have happened in history. There are actors who'll jump out at you during various places of the experience so if you have a heart condition beware or take your medication.

The Dungeon is such an obscure place, in the middle of bustling London this amazing venue showcases some of the most fascinating, gruesome and horrific events throughout London's history. If you're interested in the horror of the Black Plague and the Great Fire with misc gore to boot, then this is the place for you. I found it astounding how the legend of Jack the Ripper made him such an icon to the effect of offering action figures and keychains of him at the gift shop among many other morbid bobbles. Great times for anyone interested in a breather/screamer from the tenuous tourist sites and venues.

This is a pretty fun place to go. If you're the sort, you'll be really scared. The bit I got most scared about was the hall of mirrors. Couldn't find your way out!! I live near London, so getting there is dead easy. But the trains and tube are the best way. If you don't want to queue, avoid the usual tourist time - summer.. I know that sounds daft, but London is a truely a beautiful place esp. in winter - plus you won't collapse from the heat on the tube. They've got a new ride there, haven't been in a while. But you should def. go!
