The York Dungeon

2000 years of history are brought to horrible life at the York Dungeon; an essential part of the complete York experience.

Immersive sets, incredible actors and unique stories allow you to see, hear, smell and feel York's darkest history.

You’ll meet some of the city’s most despicable and murderous rogues, from the terrible Vikings, to York legends Guy Fawkes and Isabella Billington. Surprises lurk in the darkest depths of this award-winning attraction, dare you give it a try. Come and discover the TRUE terror of York's past. Click HERE for our website.

New for 2021, we've escaped out of the Dungeon to explore our (in)famous and historically horrible city of York with our brand-spanking NEW City Walking Tours.

Discover the toe-curling tales of the city as two of your favourite Dungeon residents, the ever so slightly bonkers and highly 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 true history and hidden secrets of the city.
