DUNGEON City Bus Tour (Back by Popular demand!)

The history of York is a strange one, in fact there’s a different story from the city’s past on nearly every street corner. Luckily for you, that’s exactly where this Bus Tour will be going (well…not EVERY street corner).

Join characters from The York Dungeon on this Bus Tour with a twist, as they reveal the darker side of York, and the weird but true stories from its 2000 year history. You’ll see famous (and infamous) locations and landmarks, on a tour that promises to be hilarious, scary and 100% true!

The Bus Tours are taking place on:

  • March 31st 2018
  • June 2nd 2018
  • October 20th 2018

Each night has two tours, setting off at 18:30 and 20:00.

Each tour last approximately 60 minutes; the 18:30 is suitable for all ages and the 20:00 for older peasants (ages 12 and above).

Walking Tours (Back by popular demand!)

Designed just for families, these are perfect for those who want The Dungeon experience, but without all the scary bits.

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.

The Walking Tours are taking place on:

  • 26th May - 2nd June (10am only)
  • 27th – 31st October 2018 (Every Day)

Tours set off at 11am, 2pm and 4pm. Make sure you turn up for the tour you booked!

All children must be accompanied by an Adult aged 18 or over.

"...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."

Ghost Cruise on the Ouse (Back by Popular demand)​

AUGUST and OCTOBER 2018

As a special event, we joined forces with City Cruises York to create a river cruise like no other. Well now it’s back, featuring some of the scariest ghost stories from York, on an after-hours cruise down the River Ouse.

Perfect for families, you’ll be told of some of the spooky sightings seen throughout history, by prophetess Mother Shipton and  Roman soothsayer Tiberius Fabius Bibulus.

Don’t worry, you won’t get wet (unless you get too scared).

"...plenty of spooky stories to keep you entertained during the hour-long trip. As you would expect from the Dungeon, the actors are first-rate and completely captivating."
