Ouse Bridge

Bridge Street

Cross halfway over the bridge for the best views of the Ouse.

Get the best view of the River Ouse as you take a selfie looking down towards the Old Bonding Warehouse on the riverside. You’ll be able to fit all sorts in your snap – from Kings Staith and the historic Cumberland House, built in 1710, to Queens Staith on the opposite side. This section of river was once the main port for sea-going vessels, and Skeldergate, beyond Queens Staith, was the principle dockside in medieval York.

Did you know?

The name ‘Ouse’ derives from the Celtic word ‘Usa’, meaning ‘water’ – therefore the ‘River Ouse’ actually means ‘River Water’!
