Extra Details

Take your pupils on a school trip to JORVIK! Built on the very site where archaeologists discovered over 40,000 Viking-age objects, a visit to JORVIK gives students the opportunity to learn about the real Viking settlement that was once in York. Friendly Viking guides will deliver interactive talks and activities on a variety of Viking topics – where else can you meet a real Viking? The ride experience transports visitors back to 10th-century York to meet exciting characters, including blacksmiths, traders, weavers, fishermen, and their families, before digging deeper and seeing incredible artifacts up close!

Call 01904 615 505 or email schools@yorkat.co.uk to book your trip.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
