York: River Ouse City Cruise Anytime Ticket

1. York: River Ouse City Cruise Anytime Ticket

The York City Cruise provides an entertaining and informative tour of the historic city as seen from the River Ouse. Enjoy the sights from a different perspective as a friendly and knowledgeable team guides you leisurely up and downstream. Your cruise departs from the King's Staith landing. Admire the scenery from the comfort of the enclosed saloon or the upper deck and treat yourself to a refreshing drink from the bar. The duration of the cruise is either 45 minutes or 1 hour and is determined by the weather on the day and by demand. Your ticket will be valid for whatever duration is offered on the day of your visit. Typically the 1-hour cruise follows a route that heads upstream to Clifton Bridge on the northern outskirts of York city and then downstream as far as the Millennium Bridge on the city’s southern outskirts, before returning back upstream to the original landing stage. The 45-minute cruise operates in the same area without going quite as far in either direction, passing through the center of the walled city. During the cruise, the captain will keep you entertained with live commentary about the sites you pass. Learn about York’s history of flooding and its prosperity as an inland port, as you sail along the river that brought the Romans and the Vikings to this site. You’ll sail on a vessel that features an enclosed and heated saloon, restrooms, and a fully stocked bar serving beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks, and snacks.

Contained within a ring of medieval stone walls, York concentrates 2000 years of history into a remarkably small area.

What people are saying about England

Our tour guide's name was Jack and he made the experience a true entertainment. From memorizing intriguing Jack the Ripper letters and delivering west end quality soliloquy amongst chronologically regaling the story, we were on the edge of our heels the entire time. Jack, our tour guide, showed us fascinating pictures of the events from the late 1800s whilst floating us around to the many crime locations. He illustratively brought to life the specific geographical location of Whitechapel and the city of London to ruminate the replaced architecture as if we were walking the victorian streets of the time. I’d highly recommend Jack as a tour guide! 5 stars!!

One of my best country side road trips. Beautiful scenery and history these sites have to offer. Darren made it even more exciting, loved the way he handled this whole trip, being patient with us tourists. Loved the way he gives us an overview of the trip and later recaps the journey on way back. If I was here longer would sign on for more such experiences.

With the most fitting of names, Jack, the tour guide, was brilliant! Entertaining, educational, and a real thought provoking experience. An evening well spent - Jack was super enticing, his knowledge was second to none and the delivery was even better. Highly recommended to any aspiring Ripperologists.

This was a really great tour. Our guide, Glenn was awesome. He was informative and funny and the tour was paced nicely

Our tour guide Jack was amazing. He did a great job in walking us through this.
