London Theatre Breaks’ London breaks include:
With priority entrance to three of London’s biggest attraction you can fit even more into one of our London Breaks, as you spend less time queuing and more enjoying yourself.
The London Dungeon has been scaring London visitors for almost 40 years but it is very different now from the museum type atmosphere of 40 years ago. Along with ghoulish special effects and gory illusions, actors join the displays to help bring the horrors to life and three specially designed rides including the Vengeance 5D Laser Ride and Extremis: Drop Ride to Doom, complete the job of terrifying visitors.
At Madame Tussauds you come face-to-face with some of the world’s most famous faces: recent additions include Usain Bolt, Rafael Nadal and Jessica Ennis from the world of sport, a new Queen Elizabeth II to celebrate her diamond jubilee and William and Kate, actors Tom Hanks and Kate Winslet, characters Captain America and Captain Jack Sparrow. Even Justin Bieber is there!
After the glitz and glamour of Madame Tussauds and the heart-pounding terror of the London Dungeon you can relax and unwind in the other-worldliness London Aquarium. Over 500 species float, bob, crawl, slide and swim in more than 2 million litres of water. New in 2012 is Shark Reef Encounter which includes a Pacific Island themed display area and a glass walkway which allows you to walk just inches above this awe-inspiring shoal of sharks.
Last in our four great highlights, although on your break you can visit the attractions in any order you like, is a flight on the London Eye. The flight it self takes 30 minutes and from your pod you will be able to see all the major landmarks of the London skyline. The London Eye now also boasts a spectacular 4D pre-flight show which offers an exclusive multi-sensory experience: the London Eye 4D is a groundbreaking 3D film with additional theatrical effects to give it an extra dimension!
Our London Breaks not only give you great time-saving access to London’s top for attractions but it also save you money with a saving of over 20% on adult tickets compared to buying your tickets at the attractions!
Our full range of central London accommodation is available for you to book with your London Break. With three of the sites on the Southbank you may want to chose a hotel nearby them and we have some great deals there, including the Waterloo London Travelodge where the break including entry to the four attractions, overnight accommodation, service and VAT at 20% is only £117 per person.

Wherever you wish to stay in London, we are sure that you will enjoy your London break with London Theatre Breaks.
We went to the recently opened London Dungeons yesterday in it's new home under London's County Hall building and snuggled inbetween Sealife London Aquarium & the London Eye. An excellent idea to do all 3 together - now very do-able - and then on to Madame Tussauds late afternoon!
Anyway, back to the Dungeons. We pre-booked on line for the first "session" at 10am and were able to walk straight in via the priority line. In fact, even in the Easter holidays the line for the "buy on the day" tickets wasn't too bad (for all three attractions), so probably well worth trying to get into the early slot(s) if you can. (When we came out at 12.15 all the queues were MASSIVE!)
They added a few more rides to the Dungeons - the last one The Drop - being the best, but over far too quickly.
The second ride is a rocky one down the River Thames and you do get VERY wet. The seats are wet when you get in the boat and then you get extra extra wet when on the ride. If I visit again, I would definitely be better prepared! I was really soaked all the way through and although it made the next hour a little uncomfortable as I dried out, it didn't spoil my enjoyment too much.
There's lots of interaction with the members of the public being used as part of the scenes you walk into. The history behind the dark side of London is very well explained by the various actors and there are quite a few scary bits when people jump out from doorways (but actually don't touch you).
There is some strobe lighting used in the first ride and also in the Jack the Ripper experience (quite a bit in the latter). And there are height restrictions on the rides (you have to be at least 1.2m)
The mirror maze is really really good!
We were in there for at least 2 hours and, as we have before, thoroughly enjoyed it.
A good event for, I would say, older children. I noticed one 5-6 yr old boy who was absolutely terrified of everything and didn't appear to be enjoying the experience at all. My boys are 11 and 13 & love the macabre so it suited them very well.
