Why not combine your visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre with other famous attractions and activities in York such as York City Sightseeing Tour or York Bird Of Prey Centre
Take hold of the past and explore the excavations which first unearthed the Viking-age city in our brand new exhibitions.
As you travel around Viking-Age Jorvik aboard our state of the art ride experience - which now includes commentary in sixteen languages, from all major Scandinavian dialects to Mandarin Chinese – you will encounter Old Norse speaking citizens on the streets of the city and in their homes. Discover the Arabic trader bringing his wares to trade, and the Viking storyteller recounting the apocalyptic Ragnarok myth.
At the end of an unforgettable journey, visitors disembark to the JORVIK galleries where they can see some of the fascinating Viking artefacts. Cutting edge displays help you to investigate all of the information gathered from the 5-year-long dig at Coppergate and piece together the jigsaw of where the Vikings came from, why they came here, how they lived and died, and where they travelled to.
At JORVIK Viking Centre you are standing on the site of one of the most famous and astounding discoveries of modern archaeology. Between the years 1976-81, archaeologists from York Archaeological Trust revealed the houses, workshops and backyards of the Viking-Age city of Jorvik, as it stood 1,000 years ago.

Thought the tickets would get me straight into Jorvik centre but still had to join queue in freezing cold for 40 minutes!

The Jorvik Viking Centre was very informative especially for my son who is doing about Vikings at school.
The ride through the village is very enjoyable. The whole experience was a bit shorter than I was expecting but I did not have any expectations.
I would defiantly go again but this would be limited as live quite a distance away.
