A popular time warp experience, Jorvik Viking Centre includes excavations that first revealed the ancient city of York, a settlement from the age of the Vikings. Over 40,000 artifacts were discovered at this location, which now offers tourists a chance to see 1,000-year-old houses and backyards right beneath their feet. The center also features lifelike animated Viking figures, based on skulls found in a Viking cemetery and modeled using advanced facial reconstruction technology. Take a tour of a recreated Viking settlement before moving on to the museum area, which combines an exhibit of some 800 finds from the archeological site with interactive displays and special talks by the "Viking" staff. A visit to Jorvik Viking Centre represents just the start of the adventure when you use our York trip planner to plot your vacation.

Jorvik Viking Centre reviews
It’s an extraordinary museum of long history, over 1000 years. The ride on tour is amazingly well done and you are under ground too!

Fabulous! Wowed what a surprise! We seen this was one of the most visited attractions so here we go! We booked as this can be very busy right in the heart of the stunning beautiful and historic city of york! The train ride surprised us! About 20 minutes take you through a brilliant and very realistic tour of the Viking age! Truly amazing and definitely worth a visit! No parking as it’s right in the Center! But don’t let that put you off as plenty of parking available in York.
Not originally part of my itinerary but so glad I went! Didn't know anything about the place so everything was a pleasant surprise. A bit of a queue but the ride was really well designed and brilliantly showcased the everyday life of the vikings. Definitely something which would appeal to all ages Near the end the exhibits were great as well, especially the detailed analysis of the skeletons
