Our guide to York City Sightseeing Cruise

Along the cruise you'll spot many famous city landmarks, including the breath-taking gothic beauty of York Minster, Clifford's Tower, one of the only fortifications left of the castle that oversaw York after 1066, the many Bridges that cross the Ouse, the serene Museum Gardens, the medieval Guildhall and much, much more!

Whether you sit on the top deck or wrapped up warm in the enclosed saloon, you will have a great view to uncover the history of this ancient city and the immense impact the River Ouse has had on its development. From the impact of flooding over the centuries to its prosperity as an inland port, bringing precious goods from across the globe into York, including the humble cocoa bean, that super-charged York’s world-famous chocolate industry.

You’ll discover more about all this history, as well as picking up some local knowledge, thanks to live, on-board commentary from our home-grown skippers. During your cruise, treat yourself to an indulgent range of refreshments at the chargeable on-board bar. Stocked with a selection of local beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks and snacks.
