The London Bridge Experience & London Tombs

Something even scarier than the Tube in rush hour

It used to be part of a clique of horror attractions in the London Bridge area, but now the London Dungeon has moved to County Hall - the London Bridge Experience rules the scare attraction roost around these parts unchallenged.

Not that it actually needed the help, the London Bridge Experience is a double attraction, combining the gory history of London with the unnerving London Tombs, which has won the Scare Attraction award for 4 years running.

Not to spoil too many of their surprises, but should you decide to give the Tombs a try, you can expect to find walls dripping with blood, snakes, spiders and all manner of supernatural and paranormal joy - all within a location that used to be a plague pit!

If this sounds too much for you, the London Bridge Experience plays the horror against the actual history of the area, so why not educate yourself as you scare yourself to death?

It is always worth hanging around before (or after) going in too, just to have a look at the actors, who are made up to look like zombies, terrifying clowns, olde worlde doctors, or even Jack the Ripper himself - scaring and enticing people exiting London Bridge in equal measure.

Plenty to recommend it to you then, now remember - should you find yourself in the London Bridge area - just pay attention on your search for the Underground entrance, as one wrong turn could leave you realising that wondering whether you have enough credit left on your Oyster Card is the least of your problems ...

23.00 Obviously residents not wanted, only rich tourists.
I did not read the details to be fair so perhaps it includes a meal and wine.?
