Why do York by foot when you can take in the views in a guided tour boat? City Cruises York is the number one sightseeing tour company. With expert knowledge from the captain who provides live commentary throughout, you can also sit back and relax with a cold beverage from the onboard bar. Pre-booking is advised, so be sure to get tickets beforehand for a great way to start off your trip to York.

If you prefer to be the captain, City Cruises York also have the option to hire your own boat… with up-to 8 people on board, this is a great way to take in the views at your own leisure.

If you’re celebrating a special occasion or just looking for something unique to mark your trip to the beautiful city of York, why not hop aboard the various foodie cruises departing from King's Staith Landing? Whether you’re looking for lunch, dinner or an afternoon tea, head over to the river for a meal to remember.
