The Blackpool Tower Dungeon, Blackpool

4.3
Specialty Museum · Entertainment Center
The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that'll take you back to the past's most horrible bits. See, hear, smell and feel the city’s darkest stories as they come to life before your eyes.

As you are taken back in time, you’ll come face-to-face with frighteningly funny characters, from Torturers and Judges to ruthless smuggler Captain Johnson and the infamous Pendle Witch. Choose your allegiance and decide if you are loyal or be denounced as a traitor in the Wars of the Roses. As you listen to the characters’ stories, you'll feel yourself drawn into another world, where the boundaries between reality and the past blur.

Be warned - as you make your way through the Dungeon, surprises are lurking in the darkness and will keep your senses on high alert as you anticipate what's waiting around the next corner…

  • The group size was perfect for social distancing however, I couldnt decide if the tour had bits missing as the London one had so many other parts to it. The acting was brilliant, my 8 year old step....  more »

  • By far my favorite Merlin attraction in Blackpool! It was quick to get in and was really interesting and entertaining! The different sections offered different insights into history of Blackpool! Cannot comment of the ride at the end as I had to skip this due to a broken wrist. Right at the start there is a green screen photo session which they offer for purchase at the end. When you purchase a package you get 20% off at any another Marlin attraction in Blackpool to use within 90 days.
  • Great for adults and some children. I think there should be a age limit for children, my eight Yrs old was terrified and their not very good at helping in there, took a while before someone showed my child and husband out. My older child enjoyed it who was 12yrs old. More research about ages allowed in there would be better.
  • Had an amazing time. Actors were top notch! Front of desk was lovely to deal with! Give the ride at the end a try! You won't be disappointed.
  • Absolutely love the dungeons. So much work and effort is put into this and its fantastic. Although we were in blackpool this weekend we were unable to go into the dungeons as when we tried to go in yesterday at 6pm it was shut although states online it was open until 7:30pm and you had 90 minutes inside even if you arrive at 7:15pm. This was disappointing. Hopefully our next visit to Blackpool the dungeons will be open :)
  • Absolutely brilliant!! The actors were amazing!!! Favourite has got to be the court! She was so funny!! 😂 Would totally recommend, all actors were fantastic and also we learnt a lot about the plague. My 7 year old was scared but said he really enjoyed it!!
