Meet the Vikings at the JORVIK Viking Centre
The world-famous JORVIK Viking Centre is welcoming back visitors from 11th July. York’s original Viking encounter now has plenty of safety and social distancing procedures in place, whilst remaining a great trip out for everyone. The sights, sounds and of course smells of Viking-age York are still creating a wonderful family experience.
Get out with the family and travel through time to the Viking settlement of Jorvik. Discover some of the most beautiful and rare Viking artefacts in the world, from delicate earrings and socks to frying pans and even a fossilised Viking poo! Real-life Vikings will be on hand to share a wealth of information about Norse lifestyles, history and culture.
As well as limiting visitor numbers and ensuring 2-metre social distancing inside, visitors will find regular hand-gel points, and can be reassured that the attraction is consistently and thoroughly cleaned – from its Viking huts to its cutting-edge artefact display cases. The new policies have been certified ‘Good to Go’ by Visit England, so visitors can be assured that government and industry standards have been met. Pre-booking is essential, and available now online, along with details of all the new safety and hygiene policies.
For one great price, visitors can buy a Triple Ticket that includes JORVIK Viking Centre, Barley Hall and DIG: An Archaeological Adventure. Visit the website for more information and to book your tickets
