FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Like its counterpart in London and other European cities, the York Dungeons offers chilling encounters and re-enactments featuring bloodthirsty criminals, ghosts, torturers, and notables from the past, in this case York's past. The darkest parts of York's history are interpreted for maximum scary effects. It's dark, sometimes loud, and not for the timid. Buy tickets online at
  • One of the interactive areas features an 18th century judge who might pick you from the crowd to be sentenced to perform a "gruesomely fun task" to avoid "languishing in a rat-infested prison."
  • Among the experiences: The story of Dick Turpin, famous highwayman who was hanged in York 300 years ago; the frightening she-vampire of a York pottery who was related to Robin Hood; a labyrinth of the Lost Roman Legion; the Plague, and Ghosts of York.
