A Great Escape
Escape boredom this February by watching London’s original escapologist as he plots his next escape from the London Dungeon. Before Houdini, there was Jack Shepherd, a petty thief who infamously escaped not one, not two….but four prisons (!!!) by breaking through ceilings and picking locks.
Guests visiting the London Dungeon from February will journey back to 1724 to come face-to-face with Jack at Newgate prison – where he has been caught by the thief catcher for the fifth time. He’s being held in chains and is ready to be hung as no prison can keep hold of him. Guests will hear from the audacious convict as he tells the tales of escaping from four prisons with the help of his love, Bess and his handy carpentry skills.
After hearing his tales, guests will be left wondering if they are watching the showman in action or have become part of his latest escape plan…Will Jack face his fate or make one last getaway?
Alongside escape artist Jack Shepherd, guests will witness 1,000 years of London’s dark past bought to life, including other famous villains who escaped the clutches of the law such as Jack the Ripper, to those who were less conspicuous in their escapades such as Guy Fawkes.
