    A brilliant experience- so well done and the actors were utterly fantastic. Spooky, sinister and hilarious. It’s definitely not suitable for sensitive younger kids. Our 9 year old boy was a bit frightened in parts - although our 7 year daughter loved the goriness and it was the highlight of our York visit. It’s very clear it’s not suitable for under 8’s. We will be back!

    This is a gem of York. You have to visit, it's by far the most entertaining time you'll have doing the tourist trail. Really well put together and gives a real interactive flavour of You're through the ages. Be prepared to be scared!
