This May half term, join the invading Vikings as we prepare for the Battle of Edington.

With this great final crusade almost upon us, we need as many soldiers as we can, so come get ready to be part of the Viking army!

Take part in a shield wall, learn how to handle a weapon, design an emblem for your shield and let out your most fierce battle cry in our self led family trail!


Choose Your Side

Would you rather fight alongside the Anglo-Saxons and defend Winchester? Then head over to the Anglo-Saxon encampment at 878AD. Both sites are included with our Historic Winchester Super Explorer ticket!
