See what a school day involves
**We still have dates available for January 2016 onwards**
We are one of the oldest and most popular companies providing Viking & Saxon school visits, and one of the few who make visits all over the UK. We average over 170 School visits per year, 1000's of schools have experienced one of our school visits, with a large number of them booking a return visit year on year, with some schools booking a year or more in advance to get the date that they want, so we always reccomend that schools book a visit as early as possible!

**** We now provide a 1066 and all that! sessions for senior schools. ****
Longship is proud to be one of only Company/Organisations
asked to provide Workshops for
 British Museum's "Vikings Life & Legends Exhibition 2014
the largest Viking exhibition at the museum for more than 40 years
All our staff who make school visits hold a CRB/Disclosure Certificate

Feedback from the British Museum

I want to say a huge thank you for providing workshops for our Young Friends
for our Viking Invasion day, they had a great day and it couldn’t have
been possible without your professional fun attitude.
I hope we can work together again soon.
Best regards, Sarah Kinsella

We were very sorry to learn of the flood damage to the Jorvik Viking centre resulting in its closure until further notice

and we hope that it is not to long before they are open and operating again.
