AboutReturn of the Vikings
We are excited to announce that JORVIK Viking Centre is now open!
This comes after a multi-million pound re-imagining of the centre and we cannot wait to welcome you back to Viking-Age York!
Be the first to discover the new JORVIK experience by pre-booking your visit now!
Hop aboard our improved ride experience and you’ll be transported back to the year AD960; Eric Bloodaxe, the last Viking King in Jorvik, has been expelled and the city is transforming itself. You will discover the impact of international trade on Viking-Age York, including the evolution of a multi-cultural society in the city, as it’s not just trade goods that flowed into Jorvik but people from across the globe!
Our gallery experiences have been completely updated, with new display cases allowing you to get up close to these precious, Viking artefacts. You will have the chance to dig deeper into the Viking story of York using the latest in cutting-edge technology located throughout the centre.
