London Dungeon

On Tuesday, Hubby and I headed up to London without the kids in tow for a London Meal and Theatre day out with Red Letter Days. We chose to eat our meal at lunchtime to give us a bit of time to explore London and being Merlin Annual Pass holders, we decided it was the ideal time to visit the London Dungeons as it is something we cannot do with the kids with us.
