Jorvik Viking Centre
This attraction is just a short 35-minute drive from our white rose park. You will have the chance to dig deeper into the Viking story of York using the latest in cutting-edge technology located throughout the centre and the opportunity to handle real artefacts with their Viking hosts. In 2017 they added an experience ride where you can sit in your own virtual time traveling machine to tour round the exhibition to see what it was really like living in the city at that time. All your senses will be involved in the experience as you are shown the sights, sounds and even smells of the Viking Age that are brought vividly back to life as it takes you back 1,000 years. After you’ve enjoyed your ride through the Viking city, you get the chance to look at all artefacts that were discovered at Coppergate and first inspired the creation of JORVIK.
