York Dungeon is a unique and exciting actor led attraction where you see, hear, feel and smell the experience.
Since opening in 1986, it has entertained millions of people for all over the world.
Scream and laugh as you come face to face with Vikings, Romans, Witches, Kinds, Queens and he likes of a gong farmer, whose job was to shovel…well, let’ s just say that it wasn’t very nice.
Those who dare to descend into this murky pit will meet some of York’s most infamous and terrible rogues, rascals and rotten scoundrels:
Eleven live shows, which take visitors around the venue, feature famous Yorkshire characters.
Keep an eye out for highwayman Dick Turpin as you listen to a stagecoach driver's grim tales.
Be prepared to meet vicious Viking warrior Snore Short Sword. His arrogance and dim wittedness is as hilariously funny as it is dangerous. He’ll introduce you to the most unpleasant of tortures…viper pits, slavery, and much, much more.
Then there's Margaret Clitherow, an unassuming butcher’s wife, leading a double life in the city of York. To the hidden Catholic community, she is a leader of the faith, who hides those who wish to worship in secret. She has managed to avoid getting caught, so far…
You’ll come face-to-face with the frightful Judge, uncover the wicked methods of the Torturer, but beware the Golden Fleece’s ghost.
New for 2019 experience The Curse of the Witch; a new show that brings evil and terror to the York Dungeon. It’s 1649 and Isabella Billington has been accused of murder and witchcraft. She claims innocence, but not all is as it seems…
In 17th Century Yorkshire, fears of Witchcraft are very much real. Scores of women and men are being accused, locked up and executed, for a seemingly impossible crime. And you're about to meet one such unfortunate soul. She claims this is all a mistake, after all, witches don't really exist...do they? Watch and wait, these are the final moments before her execution, maybe she will convince you she's innocent.
