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.

  • Enjoyed experience, third time to dungeons, never bored. Actors all very good and make the whole experience. Good to learn the history of York in a fun way. Glad to see the Dick Turpin ride open...

  • Had a super fun and surprisingly scary/spooky visit today. Engaging for people of all ages. Not what I expected at all. Would recommend for sure. They were accommodating when I was late for my booking time. Thank you
  • Extremely good fun! The actors do a brilliant job and perform with great gutsy humour and gusto! Brilliant atmosphere. Superb attraction. Would definitely go again and recommend it to anyone visiting York. Great for adults, couples and families with kids. Lots of history too, accurately told. 🙂🙂🙂
