Archaeology for all - Council for British Archaeology

Archaeology Matters

JORVIK Viking Centre

Explore the excavations which first unearthed the Viking-Age city of York and discover the truth about the people that lived there.

Built on the very site where archaeologists discovered over 40,000 Viking-Age artefacts, this is now your chance to get up-close to 1,000 year old houses as they are revealed beneath your feet.  Experience the Viking-Age city as you travel onboard our state-of-the art capsules, encounter the citizens that lived there, see inside their houses and backyards, and experience all the sights, sounds and smells of Jorvik.

Opening hours

Daily 10am-5pm (summer), 10am-4pm (winter)
