JORVIK is temporarily closed.


Unfortunately, as of 5 January 2020, the national lockdown means that JORVIK Viking Centre, and our sister attractions DIG and Barley Hall, must remain closed until restrictions are lifted.

Virtual Outreach for schools will continue throughout this period, and we have increased capacity for delivering these workshops, so please call 01904 615505 (Mon-Fri 9-12) or email to book.

Bookings remain open from 15 February onwards (if lockdown is extended beyond this date, any bookings can be rearranged for a date when we are open); all visits must be pre-booked online or by calling 01904 615505.

Read our safety and social distancing information to find out about our new measures, including restricting the number of people in the attraction, ensuring social distancing and extra hygiene precautions. Our procedures have gained the Good to Go certification from Visit England, so visitors can be assured that we have followed government and industry Covid-19 Guidelines.

Please note that from 8th August 2020, face coverings are required inside all of the JORVIK group attractions in line with government guidelines.
