About us

The Great Viking Army have set up camp in the heart of York!

Join the hustle and bustle of Viking life at a special living history experience, right in the centre of the modern city, to discover how the Norsemen and women of the period lived, what they traded and what they wore.

This is your chance to get up-close to the Vikings; ask them questions, pose for selfies and have the opportunity to hear a saga or two from these fierce warriors, turned traders.
