Jorvik Family Break

Get up close and personal with Vikings!

Open 362 days a year, a visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre in York will give you a fascinating and informative insight into how our ancestors once lived, worked, played and survived. Enhance your visit by staying at one of our Best Western hotels close by.

Once inside the centre, step on board your time machine and travel back 1000 years to the bustling back streets and houses of the old town of Jorvik.
Immerse yourself in the sight, sounds and smells of this medieval experience.

The Jorvik Centre is highly recommended because of their:

  • interactive experiences
  • unique time machine ride
  • realistic blitz on your senses
  • fun approach to education and learning

Jorvik itself stands on the very site where the excavations took place and the street and house layouts mirror the ones discovered back in late 1970's.

So what is there to do in and around the Jorvik Centre?

The main exhibition is an incredible ride around a number of authentic Viking scenes, see life as they lived it and smell life as they smelt it!

Could you be a Viking! You can find out if you are a Viking by using this fascinating exhibition and also discover how the Vikings influence our lives today.

Artefacts come alive as Viking ghosts introduce you to hundreds of Viking finds, and learn how some of these sites are still in use today.

Fancy travelling a little further afield?

Further enlighten your historic learning - why not visit DIG!

Just a short walk away, DIG is an archaeological adventure - an insight into what being an archaeologist is all about. It enables visitors to experience a dig in comfort and safety, and to uncover artefacts from different periods in British history.
Their trained staff are always available to answer any questions you might have, and video's around the centre offer an informative insight into the workings of a modern archaeological team.

Step back in time and uncover the truth of this misunderstood period in history.
