Following this cataclysmic clash of titans at Ragnarok, we have all woken up in a brave new Viking world – and the Vikings of JORVIK are looking forward to welcoming you back to their city in 2015!
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!
At the end of every year, we decorate our medieval townhouse, Barley Hall, to bring in the festive season and recreate a traditional Christmas in York. Step inside and discover a range of seasonal events within a stunning medieval setting.
Often the name ‘Viking’ conjures images of brutes and barbarians, but the truth is a little different. Join us as we explore the fact and the fiction about the Norsemen.
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.
