The York Dungeon, York

4.3
Specialty Museum · Entertainment Center
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.

  • Visited York Dungeon today although the actor's were brilliant we did think some of them went on a bit to long,and didn't find it really scary. We visited the dungeon many years ago and thought it was much better then. It seems to have gone down the commercial route of selling photos toys and souvenirs, We did enjoy the experience but sorry guys thought the old dungeon was better,
  • Took my 14yr old son there for the first time this week and he loved it. Even more so as I seemed to be 1 of the poor buggers who got regularly picked on by the cast. Speaking of which, the cast are superb and really bring an eerie feel to the whole experience. At first I thought it was a bit pricey but you can get special discounts online if you have a look and the whole cast make it a very worthwhile and pleasurable experience. I would recommend to anyone visiting York.
