Overall a good experience and relatively reasonably priced. Will say though take a coat. I was cold throughout (April). Fire alarm spoiled the mood as we all had to evacuate but they recovered well. Would recommend.

Such a good activity to do and so well done by the actors. Very informative and fun. Not really suitable for under 8’s but a must to visit for the family!

Thank you for this lovely review - I will be sure to pass it onto the team. We agree with the age too - We don't recommend the attraction for children under 8, but this is only a recommendation and is left at the discretion of the parents.

I visited the dungeons yesterday with my husband. It was absolutely brilliant.

I haven't been since they've updated the different rooms and it was great not to know what was coming.

I'm pregnant, so I had to miss a few little touches which was a shame, but it didn't take away from my experience.

When we got there, there was a big queue outside so I would recommend booking online like we did because it meant we could skip the queue. We just got emailed e-tickets and there is a discount too which was awesome.

We both left with massive smiles on our faces! I can't wait to go back again next time we visit York.
