On the 21st June I went to York to visit the York dungeonsWhen I got there, I had to join a group and lucky I had a voucher in the mini guidebook, which took the price down to £10.50The only thing the photo at the start was very expensive to pay at the end.The shows were good and the actors made us laugh and scream the shows get the audience to take part in and you get pick on by certain characters.

we got our tickets over the internet which made it slightly cheaper and got you out of queueing to pay at the door, how ever we got there 15 mins b4 our allocated time and still had a good 20 min wait. it was well worth the wait though and would recommend you go and visit. cant wait to take my 8 yr old daughter but think it too scary for her at the moment.

The Dungeon has changed from the last time we visited it. We found the smoke stifling but atmospheric. The compulsary photo was an unnecessary imposition on our time. The darkness and lack of visible signs as to where to go was a bit confusing but the frightening appearance of the doctor's assistant made some of the party jump as it was intended to do.The dialogue of the deputy Surgeon and his assistant was quite good and funny at times. Some of the posters were in small writing and difficult to read for us visually impaired visitor's. The Torturer enjoyed her demonstration of the implements as did the victims girlfriend. The Judge doubling up as the surgeons assistant .. Read the complete review

I have visited The York Dungeon on two occassions now, the first time was with my children about five years ago, which was great fun as they were young teenagers. The second time I went with my husband and two adult friends - so I will try to explain the reactions with both visits - as believe me it was totally different without the children. Well to start with you will find the York Dungeon in the York City, it is just off the river in Clifford Street. You have to cue up for a little while, queuing all depends on the amount of people there. On our first visit there were about 30 or more people and it took about 30mins to get in, on our second visit there ... Read the complete review

On a recent visit to the beautiful city of York, my husband and I decided we just had to visit the York Dungeon…and was I glad I had someone to grab!It might have been better if it had been my husband...but that's another story! Anyway, this is a decidedly scary experience. The Dungeon is actually underground, which adds to the chilling,ice-running-through-your veins atmosphere. As you descend you hear the pitiful wails of torture victims, the bloodcurdling screams of those poor souls condemned to be bricked up alive, the terrifying cries of those being sent down for a stretch (on the rack!) or strung up on the gibbet.(He got a suspended sentence - ...
