The York Dungeon, York

4.3
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.

  • Boo! A brilliant place with some really great actors and plenty of fun moments. Perfect for any time of the year with family, friends or the other half. Don't be scared if you get asked to take part, just do it. Adds to the fun experience for you and everybody else. Would highly recommend visiting this fun place to be.
  • This was the highlight of our trip to York! We had so much fun and it exceeded our expectations! The actors are phenomenal and really engage with the audience. Yes, they do pick on you and may pull you up onto the set, but it's all in good fun. The only other thing i would mention is it may not be appropriate for young children.
