About us

Remember, remember the 5th November…but what about the days surrounding it? Don’t think that when Guy Fawkes was captured, the story ended there!

This year The York Dungeon is delving into the before, during and after of Guy’s infamous plot and capture. Join them for 10 Days of Torture, a new event celebrating one of York’s most notorious residents. With new Fawkes-themed surprises inside the Dungeon, some special one-off offers, and all the gory details they don’t tell you on Bonfire Night.

What happened to Guy after he was captured? Why did he want to blow up Parliament in the first place? And what horrible things did the King’s men do to make him confess?
