Braving The London Dungeon

As a lover of horror and history The London Dungeons provides the best horrible histories walking tour for those that are brave enough to do so.

The original London Dungeon opened back in 1974 and used to be situated next to London Bridge but in 2013 it made a £20 million move and located on the banks of the South Bank creating a new and bigger horror attraction for those who are brave enough.

I was invited down on a blogger basis along with a few other members of Love Pop Ups London to experience the changes since moving and being established within the South Bank for more than six years now.

The London Dungeon opened in 1974 by Annabel Geddes. The attraction was originally a wax exhibition of gore and macabre history, comprising themed tableaux under the Tooley Street arches. Early characters included BoudicaMary Tudor and Thomas Becket and had scenes from the Norman Conquest.

Have you ever wanted to dare to experience something new and invigorating? then why not climb over one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Up at the O2 is an experience like no other and you will get a stunning 360 degree panoramic view to a thrill.

The Millennium Dome then the O2

Before I tell you about my fun journey to the O2 and my exhilarating experience here is some further background of the O2.  

It originally opened up back in 31 December 1999 as the Millennium Dome and was created as a monument to space and time. Did you know that each of the yellow pillars represents the 12 months of the year, the height of 52m is for each week and it is 365 degrees round to represent each day in the year. During it’s time whilst open it had a number of exhibitions and events throughout the year.

It closed at the end of 2000. It then went into redevelopment for a new indoor entertainment complex which was undertaken by Meridian Delta Ltd. Construction of the arena started in 2003. It reopened in 2007 and was renamed after its primary sponsor, the telecommunications company the O2.

The O2 then has become an iconic example of architectural significance in the London. You can do many activities within, be it to see a concert, watch a movie or even visit an exhibition. Continue reading
