City Cruises York Santa boat

Meet Father Christmas on the river with City Cruises’ Santa Experience

Explore Santa’s North Pole Grotto then step onto the most festively adorned boat in York, accompanied by one of Santa’s elves and St. Nick! New this year, why not book a festive package to enhance your experience? For the NICE (kids!): they’ll send you a card from Santa with photographs taken on the day of your cruise to open on Christmas Day! For the NAUTI: as in NAUTI-cal, receive a gift-wrapped bottle of Prosecco to be taken away for a Christmas treat!
