Unlucky in love? Get free entry to the Dungeons this Valentine’s Day!


The UK’s darkest attraction is bringing a little light to Valentine’s Day this year, as the York and Edinburgh Dungeons announce that all those looking for love with the last name ‘Jones’ will be entitled to FREE entry on February 14th.

Rather than wallowing in the misery of being alone this Valentine’s Day, lucky guests on their lonesome can revel in the darkest and deepest secrets of York and Edinburgh’s history for no cost at all!

The cult classic rom-com, Bridget Jones, hit the big screen just over 20 years ago, so to celebrate the anniversary and those unlucky in love like the relatable lead character, the York and Edinburgh Dungeons will allow those who share a last name with Bridget free entry for Valentine’s Day only.

The UK attractions, renowned for gripping storytelling and spooky live actor shows, are also offering out Valentine’s Day Survival Kits to the first 20 singletons who enter the Dungeon’s cells…if they dare!

Armed with a black rose and an extra pair of BIG pants, just like Bridget herself, the survival kit will also include a lovesick bag, so those who see any form of romance throughout their visit have a bag at the ready!

Guests will be able to indulge on the York Dungeon’s stories from Guy Fawkes to Isabella Billington and visit the Edinburgh Dungeon’s The Green Lady, Elizabeth Elphinstone, who was also known to be the leading lady in her own tragic love story.

Mark Mattinson, General Manager of The York Dungeon, said: “Valentine’s Day can be a difficult time for some, that’s why this year the Dungeons is offering those who share their name with the classic big screen character – who is usually down on her luck in love – the chance to enjoy the attraction for free!

“So, leave the ice cream in the fridge and keep those pyjamas under the pillow and come out and celebrate Valentine’s Day at the spookiest attraction in the UK. Here, at the Dungeons we celebrate all those (in)famous characters and we wanted to show that Valentine’s Day isn’t just for those head over heels in love. Who knows, singletons may even find the one they’re looking for down in the depths of the dungeons?!”

To receive free entry to The York and Edinburgh Dungeons, simply visit either attraction on Valentine’s Day (February 14th) and prove your name by showing identification.
