Think you know the JORVIK Viking Centre? Think again. York’s world class Viking attraction opens its doors to visitors again on April 8th after a multi-million pound reimagining, and it’s going to be better than ever.
All traces of the devastating floods of 2015 are gone, replaced by new gallery experiences, the change to get closer to Viking history using cutting edge new technology, and even a updated ride to take you back in time.
Hop aboard the new improved ride to experience the sights, sounds and infamous smells of the Viking Age. You’ll be transported back 1000 years to discover the impact of international trade on Viking York, including the evolution of a multicultural society in the city. With 22 new animatronics, there’s something new to see around every corner. With so much to look forward to, we’re sure visitors will flood to visit.
On the launch weekend (April 8th & 9th), visit Coppergate and join in with two days of Norse-inspired music, games and displays. Welcome back, JORVIK, we’ve missed you!
