National Wonders – Jorvik Viking Festival

Welcome to the second instalment of our National Wonders tour.

Back in February our intrepid roving reporter Ben visited the wonderful city of York and discovered history being brought well and truly to life.

Every year, the city is invaded by a rampaging but friendly horde of modern vikings as they bring their traditional crafts, culture and battle cries to the city streets.

As you’ll see, our Ben (son of John) got stuck in – making coins, arrowheads and even poo… err, yes you did read that right.

So join us as we ask once again: Is this really how the UK spends a day?
