This is well worth a visit in York and one of the few attractions I have visited that caters for all ages. You are taken on a ride via a cable car through a Viking settlement, where the Vikings are portrayed as civilised settlers, not pillaging hordes. The commentary is excellent and young and old will learn something new I am sure. The final destination is to a museum where there are a number of interesting exhibits including three skeletons which have revealed much about the Vikings' way of life. It is a very hands on for children, easily accessible for older people and the staff are most amiable, ready to help and explain. At £11 for an adult some may say it is expensive, but the admission fee allows for a further visit. I thought it was good value for money as I learned a great deal and it altered my view of the Vikings.
It becomes busy and I didn't pre-book. I suggest in peak holiday times, you do!
