Autism Hour

JORVIK Viking Centre is proud to be supporting National Autism Hour at 4pm on Friday 12th October

We will be offering a low-arousal setting within the centre, including turning down ambient noise in the galleries and the ride experience and toning down the strength of the smells of Viking-age York but still offering our visitors the opportunity to discover, explore and experience the impact of the Vikings throughout their visit.

Pre-booking is recommended but not essential. Discover more about access at JORVIK here.
