City Cruises York

1 Low Ousegate, York YO1 9QU

Why not try something different and party on a boat down the Ouse with City Cruises?  ”

Are you in charge of organising the office Christmas party this year and looking for a venue with a difference? Our ever-popular ‘Party Nights Afloat’ cruises are a great night out for large or small groups and sail on selected weekend dates in December. They are a much more economical option for smaller groups; you simply buy enough tickets for everybody in your party and then you will have a reserved table for you and your party either upstairs on the enclosed upper deck close to the BBQ or downstairs close to the bar.

Remember that fancy dress is welcome (and encouraged!).

Once everybody has eaten, the DJ will keep you on the dance floor with hit after hit. They will be playing all your favourite cheesy Christmas Number 1’s, from Santa Baby to the Stop the Cavalry, from All I Want for Christmas is You to Merry Christmas Everybody. They will no doubt throw in a few of your favourite dance floor fillers as well.

From the minute that you step aboard to the moment you return to shore, you will have an unforgettable time aboard our famous disco BBQ cruise. Our crew, chef and DJ look forward to welcoming you aboard.


  • A glass of Christmas punch as you step aboard
  • Delicious 2 course festive BBQ buffet
  • Disco and dancing

If you have a group of 20 or more why not consider your very own boat?
