It’s been 30 years since JORVIK Viking Centre first opened its doors. Now, as part of the celebration of our 30th anniversary, we are going back to where it all started: The Coppergate Dig.
Join us as we celebrate 30 years of JORVIK Viking Centre. With a programme of exciting events focusing on JORVIK’s development as one the cutting edge visitor attractions to the future of the Vikings in York, this is something you won’t want to miss out on!
Discover the story of medieval York during the reign of Richard III through to King Henry VII. Explore Monk Bar and Micklegate Bar within the historic city walls and find out the role they played in the strife and ceremony that was shaped by the Wars of the Roses.
Returning for its third exciting instalment, The Yorkshire Medieval Festival is coming to take God’s own County back to the middle ages this summer, with different events taking place every day.
