JORVIK Viking Centre details...

Take the children to discover York’s Viking legacy at the award-winning JORVIK Viking Centre.  Hop aboard the time capsule to 10th century York, and take in the sights, sounds and even the smells (including rotting fish and cabbages!) of the Viking Age city.

Dig deeper into the Viking story of York by getting close-up with a rare collection of 1,000-year-old-artefacts whilst talking to friendly Viking hosts. Why not ask them what a Viking would have for tea or if they know how to play football?

The Herefordshire Hoard is on display at JORVIK Viking Centre until summer 2024.  The Hoard, on loan from Herefordshire Council, was discovered in 2015 by metal detectorists. It is believed that 90% of the hoard was sold on the black market and currently consists of 29 silver coins, unique gold jewellery, a remarkably well-preserved rock crystal pendant and a single silver ingot.

Please check the website for opening information and tickets. Multi-site tickets are also available.
