The London Bridge Experience and London Tombs, London Bridge, London
Andrea from Supplier Team, October 2022
What did you get up to?
I took my family with me on my experience at the London Tombs, London Bridge. Despite not planning our arrival, we only had a maximum 15-minute wait before the show started. Very well organised by both the street clerk and internal reception team, so no delays or confusion experienced. Boasting a large restaurant area (really large!), there is ample opportunity for all to get refreshed after journeying through London. Included within a group of around 25, we were briefed by the reception guide, before heading downstairs for an educational overview of some key events in Londinium’s colourful, and often cruel, history.
The experience continued to be interactive and enjoyable, with all actors playing their part wonderfully. The experience is made by the actors, and they clearly love their job. Our group size was probably at its maximum but at no point did it feel crowded or uncomfortable.
For those planning on visiting with younger visitors, do plan ahead for some very dark and loud experiences. There is an age limit of over 5 however this could be very subjective given the gory content on offer… London Tombs is most definitely not for the squeamish!
The experience lasted for an hour in total, and you exit back into the large drinks and dining area which would be ideal and fun for larger groups or corporate bookings.
What did you enjoy the most?
Our favourite part was learning about the gruesome history of London’s ruling throughout the ages. It was well explained, and incredibly well acted, so everyone remained interested and engaged. There were some notable entrants in the show (think Jack the Ripper!).
1. Ensure that it’s age appropriate for younger visitors as it was genuinely quite scary and claustrophobic in parts… it may not be for all!
2. Try the bar after your visit! They offer a great range of bar food and drinks – including German pitchers and drinking games.
