Best place I been in a while!!

“The York dungeon is not only a dungeon the staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful! You aren't waiting long to enter they have all got the best actors I have ever seen with all different roles telling the history in many different ways some scary moments what made me jump plenty of times came on the 7/5/2017 and would love to visit again shortly! 10/10! Thank you too all the staff.”


Fantastic Staff!

“My friend and I went to York Dungeons last weekend. We had the most fantastic time due to the staff there. Firstly the photographer who was rather amused by the fact I specifically requested the sign declaring myself as a witch. The poor guy at the ticket desk who was on the top of his witty game sparring with us as he dropped the bottles of water on the floor. And then at the end the amazing staff in the shop and manning the photography stand who freely admitted that our pictures were the best they had seen (which they were). But also, who stood by and listened to the photos we wanted and told us to get another photo package which worked out cheaper but better for us (and with more pictures) and then shared funny stories of other customers. We had an absolutely amazing time- I had a Merlin Annual Pass when I was younger but York absolutely blew my socks off!! Definitely a trip to remember!”

awesomely terrifying experiance!!!! An absolute must for something fun and unique

“At the age of 30 I had not visited the York Dungeons, Fed up of the usual boring stuff for my children to do (cinema,bowling,trampolines) We wanted to do something different! Me my husband and our son and daughter came to the York dungeons on a wim, only just making the last tour! All I can say is wow!! what a truly fun and frightening experience we had!! My son and daughter were petrified (even I was quite jumpy haha!!) The actors and actresses are amazing and made the whole experience absolutely fantastic! With stories of the history characters and gruesome tales it truly was the best place we have all been in a fair while!! All four of us loved it and had an awesome time!! Massive props to all involved!!! definitely a must for anyone who wants to do something different, exciting and scary all at the same time!! well done guys!! well worth the money will definitely return when my younger two are old enough!!”
