Full description
Climb aboard this ghoulish one-hour cruise down the river Ouse in Europe’s most haunted city. Boarding at King’s Staith Landing, a short work from the medieval minster, your seat is reserved on an intimate riverboat, which will take you down the famous river running through this classic and important English city.

As you sail down, you will be tricked and treated to a night of spectral stories and horrible histories unique to this ancient Roman stronghold. The famed Yorkshire prophetess Old Mother Shipton and Roman soothsayer Tiberius Fabius Bibulus will be your guides into York’s dark past, shining a light onto 11 of York’s most infamous ghost stories. This unique event offers a special way to end a day in York.

Step aboard the 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.
