JORVIK Viking Centre

Built on the very site where archaeologists found the remains of the original Viking city of Jorvik, the JORVIK Viking Centre in York offers visitors a unique opportunity to ride in a time capsule and take a trip into the year AD975.

Passengers are transported through the Viking City, taking in all the sights, sounds and smells of everyday Viking life. Everything here is based on fact – right down to the smell of the recreated cesspit!

Experience a blast of smoke as the capsule travels past the riverside and over the rooftops and filthy sewage-strewn streets, giving you an idea of the impressive size and scale of Jorvik as it was in the 10th century.

Travel through the busy Coppergate market place where virtually anything from Viking times can be bought or sold. Witness market traders go about their business noisily buying, selling and arguing over the range of goods on offer. Spy on Viking residents as they go about their daily lives; one unwell Viking is making use of his outdoor toilet - don't forget to hold your nose…the drains weren't particularly advanced in Viking times!

At the end of an unforgettable journey, visitors arrive at the new exhibition, ‘Are you a Viking’ that helps determine if they could have Viking ancestors as well as see over 750 of the fascinating Viking artefacts that were once buried under the centre, including a full Viking skeleton.

Jorvik is a ‘must-see’ for visitors to the city of York and is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the UK outside London.
