Jorvik Viking Centre

The Jorvik Viking Centre is one of the top tourist attractions in York

It reopened in 2017 after a £4.3m  "re-imagining". 

The Jorvik Viking centre came about after archaeologists carried out a 5 year excavation from 1976 as they found a multitude of items from a buried Viking village. They were initially only undertaking a 6 month dig before the new Coppergate shopping centre was built!

Today the tour takes you through not only the sights  how the Vikings lived but includes the smells as well  - it really is something for all ages.
