6:09pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
NAMESAKES of a pioneer of the flushing toilet can visit a York attraction for free as part of a celebration of all things that stink.
The York Dungeon is offering free entry to anyone who can prove their surname is Crapper, and half price to anyone whose first name is Thomas, until Sunday, September 1.
In honour of Thomas Crapper, those sharing his names are being invited to the attraction as part of a special summer celebration – Summer of Stink, the dungeon’s new theme attraction.
Guests will be able to experience five new smell zones from 2,000 years of horrible history, which include the burning smells of Clifford’s Tower, the famous aromas of the York Shambles and the vile stench of the Vikings and the reek of the interactive privy.
The York Dungeon is a 70-minute journey into more than 2,000 years of York’s history and includes 11 shows, eight of which are actor-led performances.
Families can also take advantage of a 40 per cent discount on family saver tickets to the dungeon, by booking online in advance at www.thedungeons.com/york.
