Journey Back in Time

When your “Viking” invites you into their Longhouse they will transport you back in time. You will be invited to sit on the simple wooden benches, covered in animal skins and learn about how they cooked over an open fire, heated water in a wooden bucket, preserved their meat in the rafters and made their own bread, not only to eat but also to trade!Once in Valhalla you will be greeted by the one eyed Odin, Lord of all the Viking Gods, who will then introduce you to the other four main Viking Gods, you will learn that the Vikings believed their Gods influenced their daily lives. For instance they believed that lightening was caused by the hooves of the goats that pulled Thor, the thunder God’s chariot over the sky! And that Njord, the God of the seas and ships, would save them from being eaten by monsters should they fall into the sea! You will also learn about Frey, the God of fruitfulness and his sister Freya and her warrior maidens, the Valkyries.

The third stage of your tour is our cinema presentation. This is shown on 5 screens and is an action packed tale of over 500 years of Viking history. Viking history is retold from their earliest raids on the Outer Isles of Scotland right up until the Battle of Largs. You will see brave battles, the plunder of churches and the final defeat if the Vikings in 1263.

The last stage of your tour is our Viking Hall of Knowledge where you will find information panels, 4 interactive CD-ROM with over 15,000 pieces of information, scale models of our Viking Longship, a detailed map showing the Viking World and various wooden puzzles and games. Through the interactive question and answer boxes you will learn the who, what, when, why and how of Viking life. You might even learn a few new facts as well, such as Vikings used horns to drink out of and never wore them on their heads!

School Information

Largs is a most attractive seaside resort on the West Coast of Scotland; it boasts magnificent views over the Isle of Cumbrae and the Firth of Clyde beyond. When you are here you must pay a visit to the Pencil Monument, located beside the Marina, erected to commemorate the defeat of the Vikings at the Battle of Largs in 1263. There is plenty of parking space and a large grassed area where the children can “blow off steam” before they return home. Then there is Kelburn Country Park, Inverclyde Sports Centre and Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park all within easy reach and having plenty to offer.
