Our 2017 Ghost Cruise on the Ouse with York Dungeon was a great success, details for Ghost Cruises in 2018 have now been announced!!!

In an exclusive partnership between City Cruises York, the York Dungeon and their award winning actors, raise a toast to the ghosts of York on the Ghost Cruise on the Ouse.

Join famous Yorkshire prophetess Old Mother Shipton and Roman soothsayer Tiberius Fabius Bibulus as they gaze into York’s dark past, and shed light on some of York’s most infamous ghost stories. As you sail along the river, things will take a turn to the paranormal as you learn more about 11 of the city’s spectral sightings on this unique Halloween event.

Sailing for one hour aboard one of our five river boats, equipped with an enclosed heated saloon, toilets and a fully stocked bar serving beers, wines, spirits (!), soft drinks, hot drinks and snacks.

We recommend that the Ghost Cruise on the Ouse is suitable for children aged 6 years and over.

Sailing every Friday and Saturday in August until Saturday 25th at 6 p.m.

Then, our Halloween specials will be sailing every night at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. from Saturday 27th October to Wednesday 31st October, 2018.
