Contact Gallery Events Meet The Vikings

Welcome to Ormsheim Vikings

Welcome! We are the Ormsheim Vikings. Based in Leeds, we are a regional group of The Vikings, the oldest and largest Dark Ages re-enactment group in the UK

We provide both battle re-enactment and living history encampments for events all over the country. We travel to events all over the UK (and even as far as mainland Europe). Please check out our Gallery page for photos of us in action. We are the green and white shields

New members are always welcome. If you are interested in coming along to a free initial session, click here for more details on where we are located.

Living History

Within the camp you will find people from all walks of life, from the lowliest slave to the king himself, from a humble peasant farmer to an accomplished warrior, from a skilled artisan to a housewife. Children run about engaged in both chores and training for their later lives.
