    Jorvik Viking Centre Information

    The Jorvik Viking Centre is a museum in central York in North Yorkshire.

    Created by the York Archaeological Trust in 1984, this world-renowned centre is one of the UK’s most popular visitor attractions outside London.

    Visitors can journey through time to see the streets of Jorvik (York) as they would have been 1,000 years ago. Explore one of the most amazing archaeological discoveries of our time. The remains of houses from a millennia ago and Viking-age timbers are brought to life before your eyes, as well as the matching smells and sounds! In the accompanying exhibitions, you’ll find out who the Vikings were, how they lived and why they came to Britain.

    The Jorvik Viking Centre is open every day.
