Chose this as a last minute family thing to do to fill in some time. Price is what to expect with tourist attractions. We paid about £25 for two excursions. Wasn’t sure what to expect with the dungeons but I have to say it was great fun. It is not a ride you sit back and take in the surroundings.... More

We bought our tickets half price from Madame Tussaud's so for us the dungeons were great value for money. The staff are great at what they do and completely make the visit!! The ride at the end was a great bonus to the visit.

Went to the dungeons this week with my partner, absolutely terrifying yet hilarious at the same time. The staff are fantastic and the way they don't break character is amazing. Would definitely go again!

Knowing very little about Lancashire history, being from Staffordshire. I learned a lot about the North West and how certain events in history helped shape the nation we live in today. The staff who help portray the dark history of Lancashire are top notch and play the roles brilliantly. Just be prepared for a heart in mouth moment at the... More
