What we offer on a school trip
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 artefacts up close!
If you would like to find out more about visiting JORVIK safely, please contact our Reservations department directly by phone (01904 615505) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Can’t visit in person? With York Archaeology Learning Virtual Outreach, you can invite a Viking into your classroom via videoconferencing! Your students can spend 45 minutes discovering what life was like in the Viking Age from the perspective of different 10th-century inhabitants of the city of Jorvik. All you need to take part in a webcam, microphone and access to a videoconferencing platform.
