Little Vikings Awards 2021 – The winners! The best of York for kids this year

Little Vikings Awards 2021

We really felt the love with this year’s Little Vikings Awards, with thousands more votes cast than ever before. You were keen to let us know which family-friendly people and places you rate, and we were keen to hear your favourites. And here it is in full: the very best of family-friendly York in 2021, as chosen by you. Huge congratulations to all of the winners, and to the finalists too! Many thanks to our sponsors, St Peter’s School, for their support of this year’s awards.
