With Easter just around the corner, it’s now that time of year to start thinking about fluffy bunnies, yellow ducklings and all manner of other cute and cuddly woodland creatures – although if you head to London’s South Bank you could be in for something rather more sinister this April.
That’s because the London Dungeon – one of the capital’s most popular and exciting attractions – is preparing to launch its terrifying programme of Easter terror, with many of the murkiest and most evil characters from the city’s history set to take part in the celebrations.
Beginning on April 7th, the world-famous venue will be putting its own spin on the Easter celebrations, with a special Bad Eggs Easter Trail leading visitors through the halls of this hair-raising attraction. On the way, guests can expect to encounter the likes of Jack the Ripper as he awaits his next victim on the streets of Whitechapel, which Sweeney Todd will have his demonic barber equipment at the ready.
Other characters taking part in the trail include Guy Fawkes, who will no doubt be lurking beneath the Houses of Parliament awaiting his chance to set off his gunpowder.
On top of all this, the London Dungeon will also be welcoming a brand new Easter-related villain this year, with the so-called Egg-cecutioner taking up residence at the venue throughout the Easter period.
Every day until April 20th, this egg-smashing scoundrel will be displaying his hatred for all things ovum-shaped by smashing eggs using a variety of ghastly methods and tools.
The London Dungeon is located close to both Waterloo and Embankment tube stations, and is just a short journey from hotels in London. It’s also within walking distance of many of London’s other top attractions, such as the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.
