The London Dungeon

London Dungeon LabyrinthIf you're into gruesome, then The London Dungeon is for you. It has just announced its Scream Team for making the Dungeon even more scary: five boys and five girls, aged from 11 to 15, chosen for their knowledge of homicidal monsters and 18th century body snatchers. What caused my stomach to lurch a bit when I last visited the place were some of the old menus. Yuk! US investment firm Blackstone bought Merlin Entertainment, owner of The London Dungeon, for £103m last year. The cherubs of the Scream Team form its bid to increase ticket sales. What will the little dears come up with? Click the title link for a Flash Player 8 routine that didn't crash my copy of IE6. Note for parents: this museum - innovative in its day - teaches London history, and probably does a better job than most school teachers; but don't tell the kids!

The London Dungeon is about as scary as a fairground ghost train.

If you want scary try organising a visit for the first aiders to the Museum at Guys just down the road.
Truly Gruesome!! But in jars.

You should try St Thomas's Old Operating Theatre, complete with boxes of sawdust they used to kick around under the operating table to catch the rivulets of blood! And the saws!
