The tour will generally take around an hour and while there is no age limits, it has been labelled the UK’s Scariest Attraction several years running and is a playful horror immersive experience. You have been warned!

After your guided immersive tour you can then descend into the London Tombs themselves to run the equally immersive scare maze!
