*Important note: Due to severe flooding in York the JORVIK Viking Centre will remain closed until further notice*
Come face to face with Vikings in this incredible smells-and-all recreation of 9th century York, and join them in Europe’s largest Viking Festival.
If you’re visiting in February, don’t miss the JORVIK Viking Festival, when masses of hairy, armoured Norsemen overrun the city for nine days. Compete in the Strongest Viking competition or for the Best Beard award (women may knit their entry). This is Europe’s biggest Viking Festival, and it culminates in an explosive live-action battle. JORVIK Viking Centre is in York, 3 hours from London by train.
