New for 2021, we've escaped out of the Dungeon to explore our (in)famous and historically horrible city of York with our City Walking Tours. Discover true, the toe-curling tales of the city as two of your favourite dungeon residents, the ever so bonkers and slightly sarcastic Black Jester along with our most ugliest & smelliest peasant Smedley, are released onto the streets of the city to lead you on a journey to discover York’s the true history and hidden secrets of the city.
Learn about York’s most infamous rogues and heavenly saints including Dick Turpin, Guy Fawkes and the Pearl of York herself, Margaret Clitherow. Hear stories of Roman exploits and Viking invasions as you take in York’s most historical spectacular sights including Clifford’s Tower, York Minster and The Shambles and be regaled with tales of tragedy, horror, hangings and ghosts! There's plenty to see, lots to learn and a barrel load of laughs to be had along the way!
