The darkest history of York will be coming to light this month as the York Dungeon launches its frighteningly fun and family friendly city walking tour.
Starting from Friday (16 April), tours will be running Friday to Sunday, with a range of start times throughout the day.
Guests will be taken on a tour of some of the city’s most hair-raising historic locations by two of the Dungeon’s most – or should we say least – loved characters.
Packed full of tales of the cities murky history, with a few surprises thrown in, the tours introduce people to some of the tales one of Europe’s most haunted cities.
General manager of the York Dungeon Andy Turner said: “We are so excited to be able to bring our family favourite dungeon experience out of the shadows and onto the streets of York.
“The York Dungeon has been an experience for so many before, yet never like this. Guests will be able to learn about the history of York, whilst visiting landmarks and there may be a few spooky surprises along the way.”
Tours will depart from outside the York Dungeon starting from 12pm, 1.30pm, 3pm and 4.30pm and will run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Guests must pre-book tickets in advance via the York Dungeon website, with prices standing at £6.50 for adults and £5.50 for children. Tours will be limited to just 15 peasants. All children aged 5 -15 must be accompanied by an adult 18 or over.
