We would recommend but perhaps for older children. There is a lift. After that we walked through to look at the artefacts and we were in time to listen to the Viking gentleman who was giving a talk about all things Viking. These include the only Viking-age sock in England. Each smell evokes a fundamental aspect of its place of origin.

Emergency evacuation procedures We have emergency evacuation procedures for disabled visitors. Jorvik Viking Centre is a highly interactive experience through Viking York where visitors get to see, hear, and smell what life was like 1, years ago. The Old Norse placename Konungsgurtha, Kings Court, recorded in the late fourteenth century in relation to an area immediately outside the site of the porta principalis sinistra, the east gatehouse of the Roman encampment, perpetuated today as King's Square, which nucleates the Ainstyperhaps indicates a Viking royal palace site based on the remains of the east gate of the Roman fortress. Jorvik Viking Centre operates a traffic light sticker system for visitors should you wish to participate. Subsequently, the title of Duke of York has usually been given to the second son of the King or Queen. Until now that is.

All Rights Reserved. You travel through this recreation on a 'dark ride', like a theme park ride, in a small carriage with commentary explaining the scenes as you move through them. It ends with a museum showcasing Viking remains and artifacts. From the lift to this area, the route is mm wide, or more. Not for the faint-hearted!

This room reflects on the archaeological dig by allowing visitors to see a replica version of the dig site through a glass floor, bordered by an original 10th-century wall. Wheelchairs are free. All in all, for such a small centre, Jorvik is packed with plenty of information and immersive experiences.

Max card holders are entitled to free admission, and all carers are admitted free of charge. These two toilets are not equipped with accessibility measurements, as they are located near the accessible toilet.

Each smell evokes a fundamental aspect of its place of origin. There are handrails on both sides of the toilet, though the set to the right of the toilet raises and lowers to be out of the way when not needed. The new animated figures are so lifelike they are incredible and the attention to detail is exceptional.

From personal belongings such as socks and combs, to trade goods like pans and knives, your pupils may have a chance to handle some of these rare finds.

I think I was probably in my early 20s last time I went yes that is truly a long time ago There are sounds and smells and so much to take in.
