The York Dungeon, 12 Clifford Street, York YO1 9RD England

Departure Time

4/1/2020 - 3/31/2021
Monday - Sunday:10:00 AM - 05:00 PM
Make your way to the York Dungeon and head inside with your 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 as 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 2,000-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 a 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.

Very good. Excellent actors. It was informative and scary. The program was well worth buying and the photos you were able to purchase at the end were very good and at a reasonable price.

We didnt need to skip the queues as there weren't any. Do yourself a favour and visit The York Dungeon. I was visiting from Australia with my husband, two children aged 12 and 15 and my friend from the UK. We had heaps of fun, lots of laughs and a few frights along the way. If you're visiting York this is a MUST SEE.

A great way to have fun and learn about York, or at least the gory details. Don't go if you are pregnant or at least listen to the advice.

This was a great experience for our group of 6. It started with the guy in character outside who kept our party busy while one of our party went to use toilets elsewhere since there are none in the building. There was no line to skip as such since we arrived around 10 in the morning. The actors were definitely into their roles. We had a good time and learned a few things on the way. It's good that you are told up front that the actors will not touch you, since they made some dramatic scary up close and personal appearances at times when the lights have gone out. Note that once you've done this, you will not get anything big out of it a second time. It is a smaller, but more enthusiastic version of the London Dungeon.
