The York Dungeon tips and tricks


Catherine says

"Beware! This is spooky even for the bravest souls"

It’s a fantastic interactive family experience, but not for the feint hearted – our hard as nails 9 year old was on the edge in some parts!

Ray says

"Don't forget the gift shop!"

Allow about 1hr 15m (plus time for the gift shop which has some really fun and surprisingly reasonably priced themed goodies).


Catherine says

"Refrain from taking pics in the dungeon"

You can’t take any photos and using camera phones would really spoil the experience as it’s really dark (and jumpy!) throughout.

What to expect at The York Dungeon

Family frights & adult-only nights (and some truly terrifying sights)

Ready to go on a journey back through 2,000 years of York’s darkest history? You’ll see, hear and smell (yep, really) the city’s murky past here.

Come face to face with (and run from) the mighty Vikings, get the once over from the 16th century Plague Doctor who’ll check whether you’re infected, then hang out with local witch, Isabella Billington.

Pop into the Torture Chamber next while the torturer sizes you up for dissection, then Guy Fawkes will tell you all about his gunpowder plot. We hear he’s a blast. Fancy a date night with a difference? Dungeon Lates is equal parts nasty and nice. The scares and humour are a little edgier and you get free entry to KUDA nightclub when you’re done.

They really knew how to have fun in the olden days, right?

Here are the questions people are asking about The York Dungeon

How long do you spend at York Dungeon?

The tour lasts around 75 minutes, so we recommend giving yourself around an hour and a half.

Is York Dungeon scary?

It’s a good mix of fun and scary, but it’s not for everyone. It can get very dark with lots of loud noises so it might not be suitable for people who are easily scared or overwhelmed.

What age is York Dungeon suitable for?

The recommended minimum age is 8 and kids under 5 aren’t allowed. Remember that it’s a really dark environment with loud noises. Think carefully before bringing really young kids – tickets are non-refundable if they don’t like it.

What happens at York Dungeon?

York Dungeons is an immersive experience with live actors, shows, special effects and story-telling. You’ll journey through Yorkshire’s history (and get a fair few frights on the way).

Are there rides at York Dungeon?

The York Dungeon doesn’t have a ride, but your adrenaline will still be pumping with electrifying sets from actors and spooky special effects.

When is The York Dungeon open?

The York Dungeon is usually open from 10am-5pm but check the official site beforehand just in case this changes.

Where is The York Dungeon?

Located on Clifford Street, it’s walking distance from pretty much anywhere in York’s town centre.

Is The York Dungeon suitable for pregnant people?

You can enjoy The York Dungeon if you’re pregnant. But again, bear in mind that there are jump scares and sudden noises, although actors will never chase or touch you. Vengeance of the Vikings and Dick Turpin’s Carriage aren’t suitable for pregnant guests though. If you’re expecting and end up there by mistake, ask staff to escort you out ASAP.

Is The York Dungeon accessible?

Most of the dungeon is accessible to guests with disabilities but some areas can’t be adapted because of the age of the building. Electric wheelchairs aren’t permitted but regular ones are fine (only one at a time though). And let staff know if you have epilepsy – some areas aren’t suitable.
