Moving to the City to study is an exciting experience as there's so much to do and see in London. Whilst the traditional sites such as Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London are definitely worth a look, and you should make the most of the pubs, clubs and events, you should still make time for the more alternative sites and sounds of London.
The London Dungeon is set in the Victorian railway arches of London Bridge and delights in supplying you with a dark insight into the more ghoulish aspects of the history of London. You are guided through the gloomy fog to learn about bloodthirsty historical figures such as Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd and other such friendly folk. You can see the Great Plague for yourselves in all its horrific glory; how it spread through the dank, rat infested streets of London, acted out by a live cast of rotting corpses and boil covered victims. Feel the morbidly tense atmosphere of a real execution, with a re-enactment starring yourself as the condemned prisoner.
This attraction is not for the faint hearted or the easily scared, but it is a fun, unique and slightly disturbing interactive attraction not to be missed as part of your London experience.
It’s just one of the many fun, off-beat things to do in this great city. Indeed, London is a place of infinite possibility and you can make the most of it in so many ways – make sure to take advantage of every moment you spend in this truly tremendous city.
