About us

The York Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that will take you back to the city’s darkest history. See, hear, smell and feel York’s stories come to life before your eyes as frighteningly funny characters transport you through 2000 years of history.

Delivering an unforgettable 75 minutes of edgy entertainment and 10 live shows, The Dungeon is a must-see attraction in York. Surprises await you…if you dare to pay us a visit!

You'll meet some of the city's most despicable and murderous rogues, from the Vikings, to Guy Fawkes and even Dick Turpin. Step into an appointment with the plague doctor, face the wrath of the courtroom and discover exactly why The Golden Fleece is York's most haunted pub...

You can even finish off your journey with a seat in a fully themed Tavern, with something stiff to steady your nerves...if you survive of course.

NEW FOR 2018: Yorkshire Rogues & Legends - A series of new shows exploring famous (and infamous) characters from the county, including Richard III and Margaret Clitherow.
