Create an itinerary including The York Dungeon
Take a terrifying tour beneath the streets of one of England's oldest cities at The York Dungeon. After purchasing your ticket to the depths, a guard or rag-clad prisoner will lead you through a maze of torture devices and dank cells, where you may still find a poor soul awaiting his fate. Don't worry, it's all an act. In fact, you can choose your favorite period of England's dark history to explore: the great plague, ghost stories at the Golden Fleece Inn, the judgment of sinners, or the torture chamber. Professional actors pose as soothsayers, hangmen, jailers, and witch burners and lead you through the halls with a dose of humor and history. To plan York vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • First visit to a city Dungeon and it was well worth the money. All the characters are played with enthusiasm and no lack of skill. A well spent hour in York.

  • Another must-go-to place in York. It was our first experience, and we highly recommend everyone to visit. The sets and actors were incredible! Some parts were scary, whereas some parts were hilarious. Perfect for this spooky season. Also, you can get 2-4-1 via Northern app or National rail website. I highly recommend this amazing place to everyone! The staff were friendly and professional especially Liv!
  • Fab, well priced & memorable experience suitable for all ages. Visited with my two teens and we all really enjoyed it. The actors and setup was fab, really well thought out, kept us guessing & really made the experience interesting, spooky & jumpy at times. Recommended!
  • This is a MUST to visit. Took my two teen Sons and we ALL loved it! It’s a fantastic experience taking you through the grim history of dark past times. The actors are excellent and play such a good part. A fantastic mixture of amusement, laughter and edge of seat scare/fright. Definitely recommend visiting.
  • We enjoyed our visit to York Dungeons the actors are fabulous and really make you laugh pulling my husband out 3 times to join in . Each room telling a different tale from Yorks history, my only negative is charging £12 for 1 photo is a little steep when you have just paid £19.95 per adult to get in ( which is worth it for the actors). York Dungeons is definitely worth a visit when in York
  • Excellent actors and scripts. The Judge and Witch were my favorite. Great organization with sending only a small group together through the scenes, so not overcrowded. The silly photos taken at the beginning and opportunity to buy them was a great feature and keepsake especiallysince no photography is allowed inside. It was an overall great experience and a must do if you are in York. Buy your tickets in advance online is a must. There was no wait or line because of the specific time selected on the ticket, which was great!
