Invasion: The Dawn of Viking York!

Recognised as the largest event of its kind in Europe, the annual JORVIK Viking Festival is a city-wide celebration of York’s rich Norse heritage.

Visit York in February 2018 for a week-long commemoration of a seminal moment in British history, the arrival and conquest of England by the Great Viking Army in AD 866.

With an exciting programme of events that explore the impact of the Viking invasion on Anglo-Saxon England, including living history encampments, walks, talks, tours and of course, dramatic combat performances, there is something for everyone at JORVIK Viking Festival.
