Jorvik Viking Centre What A Superbreak !

Step back a thousand years in York and see the city in a different light one where there would have been Vikings houses and artefacts. At the Jorvik viking centre you will be able to see where archaeologists discovered over 40,000 Viking age artefacts.

You will see the living conditions of the Vikings in their reconstructed houses and backyards : all this is experienced in a special capsule that takes you back to this exciting times offering you sights, sounds and commentary as you go . ( There is a special commentary for little ones so no one in the family misses out.

It is a brilliant attraction and one not to be missed and once you have your ticket did you know that it allows you to visit for a whole year .. what fantastic value !

And was courtesy of Superbreak that we were able to go and we found the arrangements extremely easy and there was no problems. It offers exceptional value as your Jorvik centre tickets are valid for a whole twelve months.

And currently children aged 5 - 15 are free ! which is brilliant and they will soak up the interaction between the guides as they take you back in the past, you might even get your own viking coinage.

The displays and information are breathtaking and you feel fully emerged in the past ....

And here is a copy of the helmet that sparked it all off the 'Coppergate helmet '

One of the skeletons discovered on site.

My only observation / criticism was that when the capsule took you back in time that the exhibit didn't seem to smell as much as it had previously but that could have been down to me as I do suffer from sinus a lot of the time.

Buy all in all it was an extremely enjoyable visit to the Jorvik Viking centre in a truly beautiful and majestic city only this time it was us doing the invading.

We were sent free tickets by Superbreak in order to review the Jorvik Centre and Superbreak service .  My review is honest and impartial.
