Ok I admit it. I totally wimped out during our trip to the London Dungeons yesterday. With scenes of torture making up the scenery and a boat ride through Traitor’s Gate to my own ‘execution’, it was enough to have me cowering with fear, my face buried into my friend’s jacket sleeve. Some of it was rather disturbing, I just couldn’t understand how a human could boil another alive or rip their tongue out but I guess those were dark times and I may never understand.
The adrenalin of it all and the presence of the rather comical live actors (drama college students I suspect) made it an enjoyable day. The Anne Robinson waxwork in the ‘Wicked Women’ section is worth the trip alone. Having her in the same room as Boadicea and other nasty ladies was quite funny.
The London Dungeons are not for the extremely faint hearted though so leave your wimpy friends and family at home.
