York Boat | York
Escape the city rush and enjoy York from a different perspective whilst our friendly team guide you along the beautiful River Ouse. A York City Cruise enables you to admire the scenery from the comfort of the enclosed saloon or open top deck. Take home fascinating facts on the incredible history of York and its river, from the live commentary delivered by our local and knowledgeable skippers.
See for yourself where Saxons fought Vikings in 1066, where monks entertained their guests and where witches were ducked in the Middle Ages. Sit on the open sundecks or retreat to the warmth of the bar and lounge.
There are 4 guaranteed cruises from each of our city centre landings at:
Lendal Bridge Landing
King's Staith Landing
Many more trips operate throughout the busier months of April - October, with trips usually departing every 30-45 minutes throughout the day.
Sailing times are displayed at each of the YorkBoat landings.
