Join our two experienced Dungeon guides as they take you on a tour through the very streets of York. There are fun stories, surprising facts and a lot of general silliness that parents and kids will love!

We’d be quick though, these events are super popular, and tend to sell out.

"...it was excellent for children. Even the adults learnt facts about York that we did not know before. If you are looking for a way to educate children about history while keeping them laughing then this is the way to do it."
