Filming and Photography

If you would like to use JORVIK Viking Centre as a location for filming or photography, please download the contract below and return with details of your request. Please notify us of any requirements including approximate dates and timings for the shoot, as well as the equipment that will be used. Charges are levied for filming and photography in certain circumstances:

  • Where the images are to be sold for profit (so this would include photographs for photo libraries).
  • Where the filming is for fictional purposes or for a programme not directly promoting JORVIK Viking Centre as a visitor destination.

For news items or  feature opportunities, filming requests are dealt with on a case-by-case basis and fees may be waived.

You can contact the Press and Media department using the contact details below.
