The York Dungeon

The York Dungeon


Take your students on a 75 minute journey through 2000 years of York’s murky history, as our full cast of entertaining theatrical actors bring to life gripping stories of the city's most infamous characters and events - from 71 AD when the Roman's created the City to the infamous highway man Dick Turpin in 1739.

With stunning special effects, authentic sets, witty comedy and a host of scary surprises lurking in the Dungeon, it’s a unique and fun introduction to a range of classroom subjects. In addition to this, our actors will also give you The City Tour! You will be guided around the City by two of our actors who tell the history and tales of the streets of York.

Entry prices for schools are heavily discounted to ensure you get the best value for money. Teachers go free with their students!

City Tour:
Explore the history and tales of the streets of York with two of our actors who will take you on a walking tour of the city.

What better way to learn more about the vibrant history of York than by taking to the streets of this great city yourself? Enjoy the famous scenery as two of our own actors play the quirkiest of guides, taking you to the sites of, and sharing some of York’s most fascinating tales (1 hour duration).

Deadly Drama Workshop:
Having laughed and screamed with our actors throughout their Dungeon tour, students will be encouraged to get into character themselves by our professional performance team which will bring out their theatrical side.

Make the absolute most of your day at the Dungeon and give your students the chance to experience the attraction from the other side – as one of our actors! With your very own pair of professional performance coaches hot from the York Dungeon shows, your class will have a fun packed hour learning to portray the distinctive characters they’ve met through their Dungeon journey. This is a highly interactive Performing Arts workshop with a Dungeon twist, and certainly a stimulating way to get thinking about York’s horrible history!
