Journey back to Yorkshire's dark days with a skip-the-line pass to York Dungeon. This fully themed, sensory experience includes interactive attractions, engaging performances, rides, top-notch special effects and elaborate staging. Experience the grisly histories of plague, torture, rebellion and witchcraft that shadow this ancient city. Great for kids and adults, the York Dungeon will make you laugh, scream and thank the stars it's all just a show!
Make your way to the York Dungeon and head straight inside with your skip-the-line ticket. As you cross the threshold, allow yourself to be transported back to York’s bygone era. Fantastic theatrical actors greet you at every turn, reenacting famous histories such at Guy Fawkes and his failed gunpowder plot and the tale of barbaric Eric Bloodaxe, the opportunistic Viking King of York who made a special art of fratricide.
As you make the 75-minute walk through the dungeons, experience highlights (or lowlights) of York’s 2000-year history through exceptional stages and special effects. Rile at the smells and sights of the plague, witness haunted goings-on at the Golden Fleece Pub, and test your nerve as the subject of a live torture demonstration (voluntary, of course!). Learn about Witch Pricker at the site of her stake burning, and discover the absurdity of 18th century prosecution in a simulated trial. (Please see full list of attractions in the Itinerary below; subject to change)
End your visit with a solid understanding of York's horrible history from paranormal occurrences and oddities to the city’s most unhinged historical figures.
I took my wife and two teenage daughters to The York Dungeon while on holiday in Yorkshire. We were looking for something to do on a cold, damp Summers day! This attraction was ideal, very informative well presented and fun. The actors who played various characters engaged the audience and kept everyone entertained. Maybe a little spooky in some places for very young children. Great fun.
This tour was amazing!
Excellent value for money
A great day was had by all. The attraction gives you a brief history of the City of York from the Romans to present day. The actors get the crowd involved which adds to a great experience that will not be forgotten.
Alot cheaper than on the door, very funny. Worth a visit!!
Very informative and funny!!!!
Funny, jumpy, good entertainment, crowd involving and thoroughly enjoyed it
Not really a dungeon. Actors were wonderful. Really involved the audience. learned all about torture.
An audience participation trip back to ye olde York. Great trip back in time. Cant say anything else without spoiling it. You will laugh and you will get the odd scare. I give this 5 stars :)
excellent friendly helpful staff
