Combine a river cruise with a tour of York’s grizzly past.

Take in two great tours at one great price with our online-only offer – save up to £5.96 compared to purchasing separate tickets. You can even visit on different days! 

Our York City Cruise is an entertaining and informative tour of the River Ouse. Escape the city rush and enjoy York from a different perspective whilst our friendly and knowledgeable team guide you leisurely up and downstream. These cruises depart from both of our landing stages; the King’s Staith Landing and the Lendal Bridge Landing. If combining with York Dungeon then we recommend sailing from King’s Staith; just a stone’s throw away.

Are you brave enough to visit York Dungeon?

The York Dungeon tour lasts for 75-minutes, taking you through more than 2000 years of York’s grizzly past. The Dungeon features an incredible cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages and scenes in a unique and immersive experience that you see, hear, feel and smell. It’s hilarious fun and might even be a little bit scary!

From experience, we can guarantee that you will laugh and scream, you will love it.

The York Dungeon features 10 live, interactive shows and they really are the black comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very funny. You and your companions will trace York’s murky history through all 10 live shows and 9 live actors. It is based on the City’s actual history (minus the boring bits they tell us) where you come face-to-face with sinister characters from York’s gruesome past, including traitorous plotter Guy Fawkes and the infamous highwayman Dick Turpin, recently returned in 2017.

Your ticket includes:

  • 45 minutes or 1 hour sightseeing cruise through York (depending on the weather)
  • Single entrance to York Dungeon

York Dungeon advise that their tour is suitable for children aged 5 and over if accompanied by an Adult. The York Dungeon is not suitable for children aged 4 and under.
