Halloween Cruise with York Dungeon


In an exclusive partnership between City Cruises York, the York Dungeon and their award winning actors, take a cruise on the Ouse this Halloween.

Step aboard our Halloween Cruise this October and find out what the Black Jester, the famous Yorkshire prophetess Old Mother Shipton and the outrageous statesman and poet George Villiers, the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, have in store.

As they gaze into York’s dark past, they will bring to life some of York’s most infamous ghost stories, stories of sinister scoundrels and tales of grizzly goings on.

Sailing for one hour aboard the River Prince, 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 Halloween Cruise is suitable for children aged 6 years and over.

Please note that this is not a sightseeing cruise but a theatrical performance whilst you sail along the River Ouse in York

Your ticket includes:

  • 1 hour Haloween Cruise with award winning York Dungeon actors
