What a year for York Dungeons



York Dungeon was amongst the celebrated award winners having received an accolade for ‘Best Story Told’ as part of their first Visit England Quality Assured Accreditation.

2017 was a great year for The York Dungeon as they were also named as a  finalist at the Visit York Tourism Awards, gaining a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and an award for Scariest attraction from ‘Little Vikings’ publication.

Having reopened in May 2016 following the city wide floods The York Dungeon has gone from strength to strength and there are no signs of slowing down with an exciting programme planned for 2018 including the launch of a Tavern, where you can enjoy an authentic experience inside Ye Olde Yorke Inn, just find a seat and enjoy a drink as you readjust to modern life. There are four new shows based on famous Yorkshire characters including; Cartimundua, Margaret Clitherow, Richard III and Mother Shipton.

There is also a new schools offering and an exciting events programme, including York Dungeon Lates, which is aimed at over 18’s, whereby on selected nights throughout the year, The York Dungeon will be opening into the darker hours of the night, with new surprises in its shows. Expect more scares, cheekier jokes and even…well, we’ll let you find out for yourself.

Stuart Jarman, General Manager says ‘2017 was a great year for the York Dungeon visitor numbers were up 22% on visits made in 2016 and we formed many great partnerships within the city including York City Cruises, City Sightseeing, The Castle Museum and The Grand Opera House, We also had our most successful Halloween season and were named the best dungeon experience within the Merlin estate by guests.’
