From the freezing North to the heat of Spain; from the riches of the East to remote Vinland in the West; the Vikings travelled far, leaving their mark across the world through trading, raiding and discovery.

Just like the Norse in the 9th century, voyage to York this February for the 36th annual JORVIK Viking Festival. Immerse yourself in their legacy, with city-wide events exploring the stories of these great travellers.

With living history encampments, talks, tours, family events, evening entertainment and dramatic combat performances, there’s something for everyone at JORVIK Viking Festival.
