York Dungeons

You will laugh and scream, you will love it. We do too and here is why:

  • York Dungeon is now Bolder and Better than ever before
  • 11 laugh-out-loud shows
  • Laughs, screams and cutting-edge storytelling
  • We're the black comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very very funny.

You and your companions follow the story of York's darkest history through 11 live shows and 8 live actors. It is based on real history (minus the boring bits) where you come face-to-face with sinister characters from York's gruesome past, including traitorous plotter Guy Fawkes and the infamous highwayman Dick Turpin.

It is a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full of authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you will get a check-up from our resident plague doctor, get lost in the Labyrinth of the Lost and learn about the legend of The Golden Fleece. Believe us, it's better than a sightseeing tour of York!
