To mark its reopening, the London Dungeon is honouring the plight of Brits who have to live with sharing an unfortunate honour – being the namesake of a famous fictional or factual killer – by offering free entry on proof of identity.
Finally, sweet payback for all those unknown LinkedIn connections, Facebook friend requests and overheard sniggers at wedding table planners…if your name really is Nellie Lovett, Sweeney Todd, or even Ted Bundy then The London Dungeon is opening their doors and inviting you to explore London’s horrible history with your fellow namesake murderers. Enjoy the Great Fire of London and pay a visit to the plague doctor with Harold Shipman, all with the London Dungeon’s compliments.
A London Dungeon spokesperson said, “Lockdown has been tough for everyone, and it can’t have helped ease the misery when introducing yourself on a Zoom call as Rose West. Now we are delighted to welcome all our guest back to see London’s dark past, and we hope they have a truly horrible time – in true Dungeons style…”
Killer namesakes will be welcomed to The London Dungeon after it reopened its doors last week with social distancing measures in place, as well as with enhanced health and safety measures.
To ensure all infamous names guarantee their free entry to the South Bank attraction, please email Londondungeon@stripecommunications.com with your name and photograph of your ID. Pre-booking is essential due to reduced capacity. Offer available from Monday 24th August – Monday 31st August.
