What better way to explore York than by the waterway that has helped shape and build the city over the centuries?

City Cruises offers visitors a riverside view of our beautiful city, from regular sightseeing tours with full on-board expert commentary to self-drive boats and special dining cruises, you are guaranteed an engaging, immersive experience – picking up a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award in 2021, thanks to the thousands of satisfied customers who shared their experiences online.

Sightseeing

Escape the city rush and enjoy York from a different perspective – admire the City's scenery from the comfort of the enclosed saloon or in the fresh air of the upper deck, taking home fascinating facts about the incredible history of York and its river from the live, sightseeing commentary delivered by our local captains. Learn about York’s famous history of flooding and its previous prosperity as an inland port, all while sailing along the very river that brought the Romans and the Vikings!

Our sightseeing vessels all have an enclosed area and an open deck, a bar serving hot, soft, and alcoholic beverages and snacks, as well as toilet facilities.
Wheelchair access is available on two of our vessels; one of which also has an accessible toilet.

We also operate Private Charters, perfect for Corporate Events and a fleet of fourteen Self Drive Blue Boats – ideal for a family outing exploring the river for up to one hour – and plan to only add to our product offering for 2023.
