Description

Get to know the sights of York with a trip along the River Ouse that takes you away from the urban rush and lets you enjoy the city from a new perspective. A comfortable vessel with a friendly crew gives you the ideal platform to admire the sights as you learn a bit about the historic city.

When the vessel slips away from the landing stage, you can admire the scenery in the comfort of its open-air top deck or the enclosed saloon. Relax as you cruise out past the sights of the central city along the calm waters of the river.

Thanks to insightful commentary from your skipper, you can learn some fascinating facts about York's 10,000-year history, including Roman conquests, Viking raids, and its rise as an inland port. The cruise brings you back to shore after a scenic outing along the waterways that made this one of the most pivotal sites in northern England.

Keith was our guide as we cruised the River Ouse. He spoke clearly and we easily understood him. There was a lot of information given. We thoroughly enjoyed the boat cruise.

Even though it was raining we sat at the top of the boat, it boat it was a lovely experience and the staff were friendly and very knowledgable, I would recommend it to others when going into York 👍
