The London Dungeon has been officially confirmed to be relocated today by operator Merlin Entertainments.

Previously located underneath London Bridge Station, the attraction will relocate to allow rail improvements by National Rail. Instead, a ‘brand new’ Dungeon will open at County Hall, neighbouring Sea Life London and opposite the EDF London Eye. Both these attractions are also operated by Merlin.

The new London Dungeon will be opening at a cost of £20million – and whilst popular features will be recycled such as the Traitor: Boat Ride to Hell ride – a number of new features will differentiate the County Hall addition.

Directors are keeping tight-lipped about specific new shows, however a hologram of Brian Blessed as Henry VIII has been tipped to be a new highlight.

Those wishing to experience the current London Dungeon have until January 31st 2013, whilst the County Hall version will open on March 1st next year.
