The River Ouse flows (and often overflows) through York and features prominently in the city's long history. It is said by local tour guides that the Roman wall once followed the river and that Vikings sailed into the city via the Ouse. A riverside walk, at any time of the year, is a relaxing way to finish off a day of touring the city.



The river can be crossed by several bridges through the city or followed by riverside walks. Tall medieval houses, remains of the Roman Wall, and other landmarks of the city are visible along the way. In cold weather, clouds of damp fog and mist rise from the water giving the city a mysterious atmosphere.



After a long walk by the river, warm up in one of York's many historic pubs, such as The Golden Fleece , which claims to be England's most haunted pub, as well as the oldest Inn in York. Apart from old age and ghosts, the pub offers a great selection of traditional foods and ales, which are perfect after a hike around the city in misty weather. Like most city attractions, the pub is not far from the river.
