This follows a multi-million re-imagining of the centre and we look forward to welcoming you back to Viking-Age York soon. To book your class in please call 01904 615505 or email

Alternative JORVIK Experiences

Discover the importance of Viking trade and industry on the city of York at our new JORVIK on Tour exhibition, Jorvik: Home and Abroad. You can also take advantage of our hands-on archaeology tours, Viking archaeology handling and a range of exciting Viking-themed workshops at our sister attraction, DIG.

Our Outreach and Virtual Outreach programme is still available, with the opportunity to have one of our Viking re-enactors visit your classroom, or to have your questions to a Viking answered via Skype, wherever you are in the world.

Also, our Viking Loan Box contains everything you need for a fun and interactive lesson, with replicas and activities that let the class get hands-on with the Viking Age.
