Description

See what a sunset over York looks like from the waters of the River Ouse on this scenic sightseeing cruise through the heart of the venerable city. Your voyage features a great look at the sights as you enjoy the calm setting and a fresh perspective on the historic landmarks along the waterfront.

Your vessel waits at King's Staith Landing, not far from the York city centre, where you step on board to begin the cruise. Settle in and look out from the vessel's headed saloon, complete with broad viewing windows and an onboard bar, as you sail out under the evening light.

While the lengthening shadows and the rich glow of sunset colour the historic bridges and buildings along the riverbank, your captain shares some stories about York's famous history, from Roman conquest to Viking raiders and its rise as a trading hub in the late Middle Ages. You return to the landing early in the night, leaving plenty of time for younger passengers to get back to their rooms or for you to check out the city after dark.
