Description

Take an exclusive, personalized 2-hour walking tour of Viking York. Part history, part legend, all enthralling... meeting you at a time and location to suit you (for example at your hotel) there are no set times to meet or big groups to join with, this is your own tour which you can take at your own pace. For a small additional fee this can also include a stop off at an authentic Viking Themed Bar in York (great in the cold weather!), located on the same site as the legendary Viking Kings of York!

This is a personalized tour through the Viking Capital of Britain - Jorvik! Discover the fascinating true story behind the Vikings, as well as the legendary tales told in the sagas, many of which are set in our fair city. There are no set times to meet or big groups to join with, this is your own private tour which you can take at your own pace. Hear about the deeds of Ivar the Boneless, Eirik Bloodaxe, and Harald Hardaraada, the story of the Vikings arrival, and their eventual downfall.
Learn how the streets got their names and what they mean, how the pagan Vikings became Christians, and their impact on the world around us today, including laws, language and customs. For a additional small fee, depending on the weather (and with prior arrangement) the tour can include either a stop-off, or to finish, at an authentic Viking themed bar, built right on top of the original feasting hall!
