Guest Skipper Cruise featuring Martin Barrass
  • Great Yorkshire Fringe

Step aboard, get your glass of grog, relax and enjoy a very special city cruise on the River Ouse. The Great Yorkshire Fringe team have hijacked one of the City Cruise vessels to take you on a sightseeing cruise with a difference. Each of these unique sailings has a new crew member! Our very own Guest Skipper to guide you along the way, experience the river bank views of our fair city, whilst being entertained by the special guest at the helm.

Martin is one of York's most famous sons, literally, having played Dame Berwick Kaler's long sufferering son in York Theatre Royal Panto for as long as anyone cares to remember.
But seriously, Hull-born Martin has enjoyed a critically acclaimed and greatly varied career in theatre, film and television. He has called York home for the majority of that time and, believe me, has some fantastical stories to tell. Come and listen to his unique take on York from the river.

The boat will depart from King's Staith Landing at 5pm. King's Staith, York, YO1 9SN
