Located in the County Hall, with ghastly sounds seeping through the front door, this is a sort of haunted house for all. It has won the Best Unusual Venue tourism award several times in the past. Wander through rooms depicting royal executions, vicious murders, various torture and execution devices, and even the Great Fire of London 1666. The addition of Hollywood-style sound effects and lighting is also a nice touch. It's all unbelievably tacky, yet good fun in a morbid sort of way. Be warned, however, that its probably not suitable for the faint hearted, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Contact +44 871 423 2240 for further information.
