 How long do tours last?

Tours leave approximately every 10 minutes and last 80 minutes no matter what time you enter.

What's the best time to visit?

Good question. We love a dark Halloween night ourselves, but for the rest of the year there's just one thing you need to remember. Like any amazingly funny, brilliantly designed and (ha ha) executed attraction... we are very popular. Our guests love us and tend to come back time and time again.

So... make it easy on yourself. BOOK A TICKET IN ADVANCE. That way you:

  • Get to visit when YOU want
  • Know that your place is reserved
  • AND you get priority entrance over the loveable, but ultimately less organised folk who turn up at the last minute.

Right. Does that make sense? Great, so you know what you have to do. The red Ticket button is up there at the top...up... up... up... there you go.

“We went to the Dungeon on Friday October 18th with our 7 year old daughter. We had warned her well in advance and we'd looked online at all the stories and what to expect. From the minute you step off the street you're on edge. From start to finish BRILLIANT!!!! Our daughter was fine and the fact my poor husband was constantly picked on - he was tortured, he was hung drawn and quartered, he had his head chopped off and Sawney Bean's daughter fancied him - helped a lot. She knew it was fun and jumped a couple of times but didn't want to leave. Go, well worth every penny”
