Viking Weekend

Vikings at Oxford Castle

21 & 22 September

The Vikings are coming! Step back over a thousand years to the beginnings of Oxford in 1000CE when our tower was first built.  

Learn first-hand about historical weapons such as the formidable Dane axe, and try your hand at some battle moves. Then take to the field to join the shield wall and fend off the enemy! Great for adults and children alike, our sessions are capped at 12 tickets for each time slot so you’ll have plenty of chances to hold and try-out the weapons.

As well as our ticketed weapon handling sessions, we’ll also have live demonstrations of Viking and Anglo Saxon crafts in the Castleyard, including literacy and medical displays as well as authentic textile crafts bringing the past to life.


21 Sep - 22 Sep


10:45 - 16:00


Live demonstrations in the Castleyard, or book a 30 min weapon handling experience


Suitable for ages 5+. Please note that all children must be accompanied by a paying adult. BOOK NOW
