Details Having lived in Yorkshire all these years and never having attended the Viking festival I thought it might be time to go! We'll wander down to the viking encampment on Parliament Street where you can " join the hustle and bustle of Viking life at a special living history experience, right in the centre of the modern city. Discover how the Norsemen and women of the period lived, what they traded and what they wore. This is your chance to get up close and personal with the Vikings; ask them questions, pose for selfies and hear a saga or two from these fierce warriors turned traders" There's also the main stage in Sampson Square where there will be demonstrations and competitions, combat displays and so forth. Both of these events are free and fun from 10-4 so plenty of time to grab some photos. There are several park and ride routes into York so check out nearest one I am going to use the Poppleton Park and Ride so will be at Poppleton Bar at 9.45am with a view to catching a bus into York around 10am or so. ( If you want to meet me there please let me know below.) Otherwise we can meet outside the Disney Store in York at 10.30 ready to do battle.
