Spoil your indulgent side with a floating afternoon tea cruise along York's River Ouse. Pour yourself into a comfy seat and savor a mouth-watering selection of delicate treats and high-tea classics, as you drift carelessly downstream.

Step aboard the Captain James Cook and give yourself over to pure leisurely relaxation, as you glide past the scenic riverbanks and historic architecture of York.

A friendly local skipper will fill in all the city's fascinating history of Viking invaders and Roman conquerors - and point out all the key areas and hidden gems along the way.
