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.

  • Your actors are a credit to you, full of enthusiasm for their roles and honestly as someone who wasn't sure beforehand I enjoyed it more than I'd anticipated. I will say however I did feel a bit sick....  more

  • 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!
