Visiting the metropolis of London is a dream come true for many. England boasts of an extensively rich and vibrant history and takes great pride in its traditions, customs and practices and strives to uphold them as much as possible. Therefore, though London is considered to be one of the most developed metropolitan cities in the world, this English capital is also home to many a site that enjoys great historical importance.
The city is replete with iconic attractions such as the London Eye and the London Bridge and the lucky few may even be able to enjoy these sites with a mere glance out of the window of their London luxury hotel. The city is also home to a number of gardens such as Hyde Park which is a short walk away from Metropolitan by COMO London. Another attraction that has gained prominence in recent times is The London Dungeon near the London Eye. Initially established as a Museum of Macabre History in 1974, the Dungeon quickly evolved into an entertainment venue that is quite unique.
The London Dungeon promises an interactive experience for its patrons and features around twenty actors in eighteen shows. At the Dungeon, patrons can meet some infamous characters in British history such as the famed murderous barber, Sweeney Todd and Jack the Ripper as well as several historical events that shocked the British population such as the Gunpowder Plot where there was an unsuccessful attempt on the life of King James I and the deadly disease i.e. the Bubonic Plague, that travelled to European shores from the East.
The Dungeon was quite famous for the horror and shock it often created in the hearts of its visitors but in recent times, it has adapted to make it a more family friendly attraction in the heart of London.
