Escape the Great Fire experience to arrive at The London Dungeon

Date Posted: 15/04/2016

The London Dungeon has announced that a new experience, Escape the Great Fire, will open at the dungeon on the 21st May, marking the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

The new multi-sensory experience will recreate the drama of one of the world’s most famous disasters by featuring live actors, themed settings and special effects.

Groups will find themselves feeling like they have been transported back to 2nd September 1666 – the date of London’s Great Fire, when Thomas Farriner’s bakery in Pudding Lane set the timber houses of London alight.

To recreate the night, the scene will be set with the appearance of hot ‘flames’ and groups will have to find sanctuary in the house of the Lord Mayor, meeting his servant as the fire continues to unfold outside.

Loud gunpowder explosions will ring out and smoke will creep under the door and into the room. Visitors will have to quickly escape as the house seemingly collapses around them.

Those who do escape will then be able to explore the remainder of the dungeon and discover 1,000 years of history within its 19 shows and two rides.

About the London Dungeon

The London Dungeon is a 90-minute experience of laughs, scares, theatre, shocks, rides, special effects, characters, jokes, mazes and storytelling.

The experiences vary from a descent down into the dungeon in a Medieval lift, a tyrant boat ride where groups join Anne Boleyn for her final journey along the Thames to The Tower of London, and a visit to the ‘tavern’, where visitors will learn about the gossip and scandal surrounding a pub in 1896.

The London Dungeon also hosts a number of different events and special offers throughout the year such as The London Dungeon Lates and the chance for individuals to combine their tickets with other London attractions like the Coca-Cola London Eye or Madame Tussauds.

For groups

Groups of more than ten will receive 35 per cent discount.
