London Dungeon opens in new County Hall home

The London Dungeon welcomed its first paying visitors to its new home at County Hall on Friday, just four weeks after closing its previous London Bridge venue.

London Dungeon opens in new County Hall home

The horror attraction left its Tooley Street home of four decades at the end of January to relocate to County Hall.

The dungeon's new South Bank home is alongside its Merlin Entertainments sister attractions: the London Eye and Sea Life London Aquarium.

Many of the dungeon's old props and exhibits were sold at a car boot sale in early February in preparation for the launch of the new-look attraction, described by its owners as a "major new 20 million production" featuring 18 live shows and two "thrill rides".

The boat ride Henry's Wrath sees guests condemned by Henry VIII played virtually by Brian Blessed – to a turbulent journey along the dank River Thames towards execution.

The London Dungeon is open daily; tickets start from 18 for adults
