York Dungeon Little Peasants Walking Tour

Location: (meeting outside) York Dungeon
Little Peasants City Walking Tour

Embark on the Little Peasants City Walking Tour and discover the toe-curling tales of York this Halloween!

Two of our favourite Dungeon residents, the ever so bonkers & slightly sarcastic Dungeon Jester and our most ugliest & smelliest peasant Smedley, are being released onto the streets of the city to take little peasants and their families on a journey to discover the York’s HAUNTED history – seeing ghostly landmarks and learning historical facts along the way.

The Little Peasants City Walking Tour is 60 minutes of walking, laughing and learning and is suitable for all the family. So if your little peasants are too young (or too scared!) to visit us inside the Dungeon, then join us as we bring The York Dungeon’s humour and fun outside onto the streets in York!

As part of the City Walking Tour, pesky peasants will view well-known landmarks whilst learning about the history of York. The city has surprises lurking round every corner and the Dungeon Jester and Smedley will bring the shadows of The Dungeon out onto the streets.

Little peasants will learn about York’s most infamous rogues and heavenly saints including Dick Turpin, Guy Fawkes and the Pearl of York herself, Margaret Clitherow. There will be stories of Roman exploits and Viking invasions. You will see York’s most spectacular sights including Clifford’s Tower, York Minster and The Shambles, just to name a few. And don’t forget the many tales of tragedy, horror, hangings and ghosts - Boo!

On the Little Peasants City Walking Tour there will be plenty to see, lots to learn and a barrel load of laughs with Jester & Smedley.
