Wet and Wild Tours in London!
Being one of the most popular tourist destinations, London Dungeon has been regarded with a lot of curiosity and excitement. This all-new museum is located in Tooley Street, London and situated near to world-famous London Bridge rail station. The main concept of this museum is to display the diverse torture methods and practices of the medieval period.
If you want to experience the history of tortures and crimes, do not hesitate to visit the London Dungeon. It recreates the sense of horror, along with macabre historical events in an interesting atmosphere. Why are such museums needed? The primary reason for opening such museums is to make it educational and appealing to many people who have a keen interest in the dark side of history.
Historically, the museum was opened in the year 1976. Initially, it was like many other museums that clearly present glimpses of the torturous history of the United Kingdom. Later on, the museum has been turned into more of an interactive one by inviting professional actors to join in. This museum is managed by Merlin Entertainment, the ones who bring you so many other entertainments options such as Madame Tussauds, Legoland, London Eye, Thorpe Park, Heide Park, Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Warwick Castle, Sea Life, and Gardaland.
In addition, London Dungeon has other very famous “cousins” in Hamburg, Edinburgh, and New York. Also, a new one has recently opened in Amsterdam, appropriately named the Amsterdam Dungeon.
Duck Tours transports you around the city in bright yellow colored amphibious craft and you’ll see the famous Ducks, not only in the road, but also in the water! Originally called DUKWs and built in 1942, these craft were used to bring supplies from the ships to the beaches during the Second World War.
The 75-minute Duck Tour of London starts from Chicheley Place, behind the London Eye. Then it’s right over Westminster Bridge, which offers great views of the River Thames, Parliament and Big Ben. Around Parliament Square, the tour heads up Whitehall, past Downing Street, which is home to both the Prime Minister at no. 10 and the Chancellor of the Exchequer at no .11.
If you’ve been to London before, this tour will give you a new perspective to the city. If you haven’t been to London then this tour is simply a must and is particularly great for families. There is action packed commentary throughout the tour, detailing all the facts about London, past and present, as well as giving us interesting stories about the beloved Duck Tours vehicles.
