Additional Details & FAQ

Access Information

The majority of our facilities are designed to be fully accessible to our disabled guests, however the York Dungeon is situated in a grade 2 listed building and this does cause some restrictions for guests with mobility issues.

The York Dungeon contains flashing lights at the start of the tour which may affect visitors with photosensitive epilepsy. We recommend speaking to a member of the team before you enter and begin your tour so we can fully brief you on the locations strobe lighting is used. An alternative route will be provided for guests who would like to bypass these areas. The Curse of The Witch show uses strobe lighting effects which may not be suitable for persons with Photo Sensitive Epilepsy.

Cancellation Policy

No refunds or cancellations after purchase.
