Embark on the Little Peasants City Walking Tour and discover the toe-curling tales of York
Two of our favourite Dungeon residents, the ever so bonkers & slightly sarcastic Dungeon Jester and our most ugliest & smelliest peasant Smedley, are being released onto the streets of the city to take little peasants and their families on a journey to discover the York’s HAUNTED history – seeing ghostly landmarks and learning historical facts along the way.
The Little Peasants City Walking Tour is 60 minutes of walking, laughing and learning and is suitable for all the family. So if your little peasants are too young (or too scared!) to visit us inside the Dungeon, then join us as we bring The York Dungeon’s humour and fun outside onto the streets in York!
As part of the City Walking Tour, pesky peasants will view well-known landmarks whilst learning about the history of York. The city has surprises lurking round every corner and the Dungeon Jester and Smedley will bring the shadows of The Dungeon to the streets.
Little peasants will learn about York’s most infamous rogues and heavenly saints including Dick Turpin, Guy Fawkes and the Pearl of York herself, Margaret Clitherow. There will be stories of Roman exploits and Viking invasions. You will see York’s most spectacular sights including Clifford’s Tower, York Minster and The Shambles, just to name a few. And don’t forget the many tales of tragedy, horror, hangings and ghosts - Boo!
On the Little Peasants City Walking Tour there will be plenty to see, lots to learn and a barrel load of laughs with Jester & Smedley.
Tours will depart from outside The York Dungeon on the following dates and times:
- Saturdays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from the 23rd July to the 3rd September 2022
- 11:30am, 1pm, 3pm and 4:30pm
- Adults - £9.95
- Children (3 - 15) £7.95
- Under 3's - Free
All tickets must be pre-booked in advance. Also, we demand...we mean, request(!) that all peasants arrive promptly at the York Dungeon for their tour or else the Dungeon Jester and Smedley WILL leave you behind!
The tour lasts 60 minutes in total.
Tickets are £9.75 per adult, £7.75 for children (Under 3's are free).
This Halloween TRICK AND TREAT Walking Tour is recommended for all ages, just make sure the little ones don't mind the walk!
We don't blame you Peasant...that's one way to really give yourself a SCARE this Halloween!
These are two separate packages so if you fancy a visit to the York Dungeon this Halloween (Will YOU survive the HEX of the Witch?) then please book those tickets separately on the date and time of your choosing!
You get wet. Bring an umbrella, and an extra one for us too, if it's scheduled to rain.
Well if you're trying to impress the Jester or Smedley, your finest attire with your most expensive fragrance... but we doubt anyone will attempt that. So just something comfortable with appropriate footwear.
The York Dungeon of course, be on time - or else you'll get left behind!
The Tour ends at the York Minster (one of the finest spots of York!) however if you do want to return to the dark & murky Dungeon then you can always accompany our characters on their return.
Every peasant is welcome, even the little ones - but the walk does last 60 minutes so be sure they can handle it.
Tickets will be on sale from Friday 1st October!
"What a fabulous walking tour!!! We toured York with the Black Jester and Smedley as a treat for my daughter's birthday. Absolutely brilliant!!!"
