Long Description:
One of the premier tourist attractions in the City of York.
Co-ordinates taken at the Lendal bridge Landing.

"An entertaining and informative river cruise. Escape the city rush and enjoy York from a different perspective whilst our friendly team guide you along the beautiful River Ouse.

A York City Cruise enables you to admire the scenery from the comfort of the enclosed saloon or open top deck. Take home fascinating facts on the incredible history of York and its river, from the live commentary delivered by our local and knowledgeable skippers. Treat yourself to a refreshing drink from the bar and rest your feet.

See for yourself where Saxons fought Vikings in 1066, where monks entertained their guests and where witches were ducked in the Middle Ages. Sit on the open sundecks or retreat to the warmth of the bar and lounge." Text Source: (visit link)
