Head straight past the entrance lines outside York Dungeon with your skip-the-line ticket, and then step inside the exciting walk-around attraction to explore. Theater actors, special effects, stages and rides lurk around every darkened twist and turn so you can see, hear, touch, smell and feel York’s murky past.
The dungeons take just over an hour to walk around, and the route covers some 2,000 years of dark Yorkshire history. Shows by actors are based on real-life events as well as freakish paranormal sights, but skip out any of the boring details. Learn about local legends such as Dick Turpin, the dashing English highway man who met his fate in York, and hear of Guy Fawkes and his cunning ‘bonfire night’ plan that backfired. State-of-the-art stages include the Golden Fleece Pub, where ghosts keep the drinkers company, and the Tudors room that features King Henry VIII on the war path.
Spine-chilling screams, moans and the clashing of steel are just a few of the sounds heard as you walk through the dungeons, learning all about the paranormal, strange, and downright spooky occurrences that have happened in Yorkshire throughout history.
