York Dungeons

As a massive lover of The Dungeons, If there’s a Dungeons in a city I’m going to, I make sure to visit.

So far I’ve visited the sites in Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Berlin and San Francisco (now closed).

So on my recent trip to York, of course I had to visit.

WHAT IS THE YORK DUNGEON?

“The York Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages and scenes.

We love it. We know you will too. Here’s why:

  • Walkthrough 10 live actor shows, telling the story of 2000 years of York’s dark history
  • Enjoy specially designed sets, special effects and gripping storytelling from our professional cast
  • Meet famous characters from York’s dark past including Vikings, Isabella Billington and Guy Fawkes!
  • Survive the witch in the York Castle Dungeon: the scariest show in Dungeon history!
  • Laugh and scream as you experience surprises walking through the depths of the Dungeon”

As a lover of all things horror, immersive experiences, props and costumes, The Dungeons give me all of these in one experience.

Walk through each of the rooms to a new interactive experience – from vikings to witches. In each room, there is the possibility of being pulled up by one of the characters and becoming one yourself. On the day I was in a group of around 10, so got picked a few times, once to be beheaded, and once locked in a cage. But I made it out – so don’t worry.

The full experience lasts around 75 minutes, which really is the perfect amount of time.

Whilst The Dungeons can be dark and “scary” in some areas, I still would say this is an excellent experience even for children.

Booking online in advance gives you a discount on tickets, and there are also options to book a Dungeon and Sightseeing Bus Tour package, or the Dungeon Lates experience.

As of yet, I’ve not visited the over 18’s experience. But it’s something I’ll make sure to do soon 🙂

As always, I loved my experience at the Dungeons, and as you can tell by how often I’ve been now, it’s something that I really enjoy and would highly recommend to anyone.
