Horrible Histories

Last night I was invited to the London Dungeon for a glimpse of some of London's ghastly past. We were lead back through the horrors of the gallows, paid a visit to Sweeney Todd's barber shop and learned of his wife's culinary skills.
Henry VIII's deadliest daughter, Mary threatened to add us to the 300 she had burned for heresy.
The working girls lead us through Whitechapel where Jack the Ripper lurked behind every corner.
Finally we are lead to Newgate prison where we are hanged.
It is my ghost who delivers this to you today where thankfully I only have to contend with swine flu, politicians bird baths and taxes to pay bankers bonuses.

Survive the dungeon and they'll discount your visit to the London eye, Madam Tussuad's and the London Aquarium.

I used to love taking my step-daughter there when she was being particularly horrible! Sorted her a treat!

I love the London Dungeon and actually took my goddaughter there a few years back. She was a bit young though and at one point she got quite scared and we left via the staff route.

I bet she would love to go now again though...

Things over here are taking a grim turn - what with your bus yesterday and this today!

I've a feeling that if I were the woman in the picture, I'd be looking a little more distressed than she is. She must have had a very robust constitution and nerve!

I was there and weren't those Bloody Mary's good, I must have had about 10 of them and the doughnuts I lost count of how many of those I had....
