Session Poster


The Vikings weren't just raiders, they were explorers and amazing navigators too. Join us for a hands on learning session for home educating families to find out about Viking longboats and navigation methods, as well as a game of Viking Kubb (a bit like a Viking lawn game!).

The session will take place out in the open on the beach at Sand Bay, where will be using the beach environment around us to recreate the impression of sailing in a Viking longboat. Sessions are designed to be active and accessible for a range of ages and abilities, but if you would like to let us know about any specific considerations for your children then we would welcome this.

Tickets cost £5 per child and can be booked via Ticketsource or by popping into or phoning the museum directly.


Road Directions

Sand Bay is to the North of Weston-super-Mare centre. We will meet next to the car park that is roughly in the middle of the beach. There are other car parks at both the North end and South end of the beach too; the North one is National Trust and the South one is pay and display near the Commodore pub. The meeting point address for the car park is 4 Sand Rd, Kewstoke, Weston-super-Mare BS22 9UE. There is also a bus stop next to the car park. We will meet on the beachside of the road (in the dunes) and then move down onto the beach.
