Meet the Vikings who have gathered in Jorvik!

Learn about their trades, see their crafts in action and get a selfie or two!

Since we've moved the Viking Encampment inside due to the high winds, unfortunately, it will be slightly smaller than planned as there are extra safety considerations. However, it will still be a great chance to talk to real-life Vikings and learn about their customs and crafts, as well as an opportunity to see inside the beautiful historic Merchant Adventurers' Hall.

*Due to strong winds, the Viking Encampment has been taking place in the Merchant Adventurers' Hall. We hope to move it to Parliament Street on Tuesday 18th February, but this depends on whether the strong winds have reduced. Please check back here or visit the Festival Information Stand in the Parliament Street tent for up to date information.*
