Jorvik Viking Museum

A visit to Jorvik Viking Centre opens the door on life in the Viking city of ‘Jorvik’ in AD975, as you travel through a reconstruction of the actual Viking-Age streets, exactly where archaeologists found their original remains.

See wood-turning, metalworking, a fish market and the street market of Coppergate (the cup makers), complete with sounds and smells! Get face-to-face with expert Viking residents as they do traditional Viking crafting and give talks on Viking weaponry and battle tactics.
