What we offer on a school trip
We are open for visiting! With an updated ride experience and state-of-the art galleries showcasing our unique collection of 1,000-year-old artefacts, JORVIK Viking Centre enables visitors to discover York’s fascinating Viking legacy. Visitors travel around 10th-century York and experience the sights, sounds and smells of the Viking age.
If you’re home-schooling, or simply trying to encourage a positive learning environment at home for your child, a visit to JORVIK, DIG or Barley Hall is a great way of supporting their development in history, literacy, and science. There are also a huge range of helpful resources available for free online.
If you would like to find out more about visiting JORVIK safely, please contact our Reservations department directly on by phone (01904 615505) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Why not invite a Viking, medieval medic, or friendly archaeologist into your classroom this year? With our new live, immersive and interactive sessions, you won’t miss out on any of the fun of visiting our attractions, as we have adapted our award-winning school workshops for exclusive access online.
The virtual outreach encounters are available via Skype, Zoom and Google Meet, and we can even include children studying from home, meaning everyone in your class can stay connected as we explore the past together.
We have introduced a number of social distancing and safety procedures, and you can read more about them in our Covid-19 Advice for Visiting schools document: https://www.jorvikvikingcentre.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Covid-19-Advice-for-Visiting-Schools.pdf
