Are you looking for something a bit different to do on your day out? Do you have a strong stomach and a wicked sense of humour? If so, you’ll love the gross, gory and very silly Dungeons experiences on offer across the UK!
You’ve probably heard of the famous London Dungeons, which have been scaring the wits out of hapless visitors since the 70s. They started out with life-like wax models but upgraded to live actors in the 80s to really bring the scares to life!
Blackpool Dungeon has frights in store that play on all your senses, with things to hear, touch, see, feel and even smell! The 360-degree sets take you through 1000 years of macabre history, including a trip back to the seaside resort’s violent smuggling past.
If ghost stories are more your thing, head to the York Dungeon where you can be immersed in a recreation of the 16th century Golden Fleece Inn (apparently the most haunted in the UK!)
Up at the Edinburgh Dungeon you can get your scary thrill on not one but two underground rides, see state of the art special effects in the Witch Hunt room, and get caught up in the ghoulish tale of infamous body snatchers Burke and Hare.
If you’re brave enough to venture into one or all of these dungeons, make sure you get in touch with us afterwards and tell us all about it (if your hands aren’t still shaking that is)!
The shows will introduce you to gruesome London legends, both real and fictional, such as Jack the Ripper and Sweeny Todd.
