JORVIK Viking Centre
Reconstruction section of part of Viking York (Jorvik) based on the remains of houses, workshops and objects found on the very site. The attraction is a train ride through this part of the city as it might have been 1,000 years ago, plus exhibitions.
NB - The main attraction is in a basement underneath Coppergate Shopping Centre. This was severely flooded in 2015 and Jorvik was closed, due to reopen in the Spring of 2017.
