Cuddle a rat with afternoon tea!

Ever fancied cuddling a rat? Join us for an evening tea like no other; with some very furry guests making an appearance.

Experience an evening of food, drink and whiskered friends only at The York Dungeon Rat Café. These exclusive evenings are only taking place on selected dates in the year, and spaces are VERY limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

Even more every ticket includes a tour of The York Dungeon beforehand; afterwards you will take a seat in our Tavern, before getting to meet some very friendly (and very cuddly) rats!

Your ticket comes with the following:

  • Welcome Drink
  • Tour of The York Dungeon
  • Official Souvenir Guidebook
  • A Souvenir Photo
  • A drink in the Tavern
  • Afternoon Tea
  • A Rat Handling Session and Photo Op!
