The York Dungeon does not offer prayer facilities for Muslim visitors. Muslims visiting the attraction will therefore have to offer their prayer at one of the mosques in the city, such as the York Mosque & Islamic Centre and the York Muslim Association. Muslim visitors can ask staff at the attraction to guide them to one of the above mentioned prayer facilities when needed.
The York Dungeon does not have a restaurant or café within its premises. There are however a variety of snacks and drinks available. The city of York is home to a couple of Halal restaurants, due to its small Muslim population. Muslim visitors can therefore ask to be directed to one of these restaurants if necessary.
