  • What happened to Isabella Billington in 1649?

Dungeons Uncovered

Visitors are placed in the centre of the market square in a pen; a witch burning is welcome entertainment. Dim-effect lighting adds to the set to create tension and fear with added sound effects.

Everybody is suspected by the Witch Pricker, who will pick his victim carefully - it could be anyone! Many special effects have been added to give the illusion of a Witch being burnt at the stake – you can feel the heat!

“Me and my family went to York Dungeons yesterday (26/05/2013) and it was completely brilliant! I knew the attraction was going to be good but i didn't realize just how good it would be! I seemed to get picked on a lot which i loved and i felt this really added to the experience! My favorite part was 'The Judge' where i was accused of being a witch and dancing naked in the dark and had to dance to 'I love big butts and i cannot lie' to free myself. Me and my family were in histerics a lot of the time and just had such an amazing day with you. We just wanted to say well done to all the actors that are involved who made the experience so much fun! We absolutely loved it! Loved taking home my picture from the beginning too so that i can remember this day forever! Thank you so much again for an absolutely fantastic time! I shall be recommending York Dungeons to all my friends :D”
