THE LONDON Dungeon has an exciting new show in time for Halloween.
And we spoke to a woman who works as the senior actor, who has revealed where to find the scariest areas.
The London Dungeon has been scaring tourists for nearly 50 years.
And with Halloween just around the corner, the tourist attraction has revealed a brand new experience.
The Exorcism of Peter Moore, which is running until October 31, tells the tale of Peter’s wife and brother who need help exorcising their home.
And we spoke to Anya, a senior actor at the London Dungeon, who is one of the many people who bring to life the reenactments of the 1,000-year history of London.

She told Sun Online that the gruesome facts of the torture chamber are what usually shocks guests the most.
One of the most horrific is the ‘pear of anguish’ torture device which was put in traitors mouths, where a screw would be turned, opening the leaves and shattering their teeth and jaw.
Anya said even she was shocked herself when she read the script for it.
However, she said: “The best scares are when it’s completely
out of the blue.”
And one of the best is her favourite show, The Curse of the Witch, which launched last year.
The show tells the story of Elizabeth Sawyer, a Londoner accused of being a witch after killing her neighbour, and is waiting for her execution.
But scaring people isn’t the only unusual part of the job – with even some celebs being spotted at the dungeons.
It turns out that none other than the current prime minister Rishi
Sunak is a bit of a thrill-seeker, after visiting the attraction when Anya was working in the tour’s Mitre Square scene.
Although it’s spine-tingling, it’s all in the name of “scary fun” and so the actor encourages all visitors to make sure they step forward into the space and immerse themselves in it.
She said: “You’ll get the best experience if you just move a little bit closer, and throw yourself in it.”
But Anya admitted she found the best way to get a scare out of someone is to be unpredictable – so if you notice some quiet time whilst down in the dungeons – watch out!
