10 Days Of Torture
Sunday 5 - Tuesday 14 November 2017
The York Dungeon
Remember, remember the 5th November…but what about the days surrounding it? Don’t think that when Guy Fawkes was captured, the story ended there!

This year The York Dungeon is delving into the before, during and after of Guy’s infamous plot and capture. Join them for 10 Days of Torture, a new event celebrating one of York’s most notorious residents. With new Fawkes-themed surprises inside the Dungeon, some special one-off offers, and all the gory details they don’t tell you on Bonfire Night.

What happened to Guy after he was captured? Why did he want to blow up Parliament in the first place? And what horrible things did the King’s men do to make him confess?

Dick is back - New Dick Turpin show at The York Dungeon
Dick Turpin, the infamous 18th century highwayman, will return to York in an exciting new show at The York Dungeon, this month. Visitors will be encouraged to hold on tight to their belongings while they take a seat in the carriage and travel along the York Road, where rumour has it the most notorious York villain has returned. Featuring new gags and special effects, visitors will learn all about Dick Turpin’s crimes and how he treated his victims.

12 Clifford Street, York YO1 9RD

Guy Fawkes might have met his maker at the Houses of Parliament but his story began in York where he was born in 1570!
In this show you'll encounter:
How was the plot foiled?
Who were the conspirators on a secret mission?
What happened to Guy Fawkes after he was caught? (euukk!!)
This is an experience filled with intrigue, conspiracy and danger. Discover The Gunpowder Plot, and what really happened beneath the Houses of Parliament on that November night in 1605.

(Obviously you shouldn't concern yourselves with a certain unlit fuse next to all the gunpowder. Just relax and enjoy the history… it's never been so explosive.)
