The riverside views are lovely. Lots of birds to spot. You can watch the boats drifting by while you navigate the city. Very relaxing.

From the town centre heading east along the riverside walk. Head for the old drawbridge just past the new flood relief pumping station currently under construction. Some lovely spots to stop and gaze across the river. Lovely to do on a sunny day!

My husband and I often walk the banks of the Ouse when we come to York. Parking in St George's Field car park affords us this on most visits and it is a chance to enjoy the quiet of the city centre before hitting the...More

We walked early in the morning and it was lovely and peaceful. The cruise boats hadn't started and there were not many people about. We had lovely views of the river and banks. We sat and watched geese and enjoyed seeing the city from a...More

York's relationship with the River Ouse is complicated; providing the city with a charming waterfront, but also occasionally threatening, often severe, flooding. The walk alongside however, thankfully, offers no such complications. The stretch within the city's walls is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the busiest. The eastern part...More
