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.


Boats depart from both the King’s Staith landing and the Lendal Bridge landing. Admire the scenery from the comfort of the enclosed saloon or the upper deck whilst to take in the sights of beautiful York.


The duration of the cruise is approx 60 minutes long, but this can various dependant on conditions. 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.
