About this Tour
Enjoy a different view with City Cruises!
Combine two of London’s great attractions with this flexible tour of the river Thames and entrance to London Dungeon! Hop-on and hop-off your river sightseeing cruise from four conveniently located piers for 24hr and delve into one of London's goriest and atmospheric attractions. The London Dungeon takes you on a journey into London's murky history. Travel the narrow streets stalked by infamous Jack the Ripper, meet murderous King Henry VIII, or (if you dare) get up close and personal with pungent "Gong Farmer". Conveniently located on London’s bustling South Bank!
Start your adventure at Westminster Pier, Tower Pier or Greenwich Pier. Westminster Pier is conveniently located next to Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. It is also only a short walk from Whitehall, Horse Guards Parade and Trafalgar Square. Tower Pier is ideally located next to Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Once you have your ticket, you can also hop-on, and hop-off from London Eye pier, located next to the London Eye and just two minutes walk from London Dungeon and London Aquarium. Greenwich Pier is located next to the famous Cutty Sark clipper, and within walking distance of the Royal Observatory, Greenwich Park, Greenwich Market and a host of boutique shops and quality eateries.

Well deserving of the long-standing reputation for being one of London's goriest and atmospheric attractions, the London Dungeon takes you on a journey into London's murky history. Find yourself stalked through narrow streets by the infamous Jack the Ripper, meet the murderous King Henry VIII, or (if you dare) get up close and personal with the pungent "Gong Farmer"... well, maybe we'd best not explain that one... Bringing with it all new shows, effects and costumes, the London Dungeon has moved to a huge new location next to the London Eye. This puts it, rather conveniently, right next door to one of the river cruise stops, meaning it makes a perfect day out when combined with a sightseeing cruise of the Thames.
