This was our second visit to this magnificent park and have to say there's nothing like it in the UK and probably the rest of Europe. We again started with the Viking attack on the village. What a spectacle with long ships rising from the waters with live raiders dripping with water already on the deck and and wonderful battle... More

The title 'theme park' is misleading if you want rides and adrenaline rushes. However, if you want to explore historic villages, towns, and cities with... More
