I took my 11 and 13 year old nephews to The York Dungeon when they came to visit last weekend, as I had no idea what else to do with them. I figured scary and gory would do the trick, but I was pleased that at least they throw some history into it. Basically you learn about the "ghastly" past of the city, they even throw in a bit about Guy Fawkes. Sure the acting wasn't going to win any awards, but it was all in good fun and my nephews enjoyed it. A bit of advice - book your tickets online to save money and avoid the queues, as it gets quite busy on the weekend. We actually found a buy one adult ticket, one child enters free offer, and they consider a child 16 and under, so I wound up only paying for myself and my other nephew.
I spent the weekend in London with my three kids and after lunch and The London Eye, it was raining so hard that really the only thing to do was head indoors. Since the Dungeon was right there, we ran inside. The boys thought it would be daft at first, since they're at the age where everything is daft, but they quite enjoyed it. There were a fair few times when my daughter (aged 7) screamed and hid against me, but with that exception I think it wasn't too scary for young children and it was interesting to see how they tied the history in with the scary bits to teach the different stories of London. Knowing that you can book online, I would do so in advance next time, as we did have a long queue. I definitely recommend it if you have kids with you and are looking for something fun and different to do - it was a nice break for them from the proper historical tours and I felt like they still got some history out of it!
