Posted on 4th Sep 2020. In , ,


Heading to York this autumn? Then let’s keep you warm with this: a luxury afternoon tea cruise on the River Ouse serving hot tea and coffee, all the sweet treats you could wish for and a tour of York that’ll be unforgettable.

Sailing from King’s Staith Landing at 14.45 on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, the Captain James Cook sails you slowly through the city of York and downstream to Bishopthorpe Palace, the grand stately home of the Archbishop of York.

As you cruise, your crew serve up homemade sandwiches, traditional cakes, pastries, scones with clotted cream and jam, along with refillable tea and coffee or house wine, should you fancy something a little stronger. Along the way, your local skipper keeps you entertained and informed with live commentary highlighting the fascinating history of York, including its residents, its building and its foreign invaders – the Vikings.

The cruise takes 1hr 30 minutes and prices start at £28.50 for adults (13+ years) and £20 for children (3-12 years). It’s run by City River Cruises York who are Covid-secure and will keep you safe so you can relax and enjoy this afternoon tea cruise in full.
