Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8), Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Outdoor

The Prince Bishop River Cruiser is a one hour long truly scenic cruise that passes by a great many of the city's most celebrated sights from the unique perspective of aboard a handsome vessel on the charming River Wear.

If you've got kids who can sit still (ish) then there's no nicer way to spend an evening! And there are toilets on the River Cruiser, so that's one less thing to worry about!

Plus, on the trip to the Cathedral you will take in some spectacular views of the city's bridges, castle and many of the Durham University buildings so it's nice to take binoculars or a camera along, so long as they are tied securely to your being to keep them safe from going overboard! All cruises are accompanied by a lively and informative guide commentary so you can get the most out of what there is to see.

A charming feature of the trip for younger children is that the fees are taken and tickets issued actually on board the boat, meaning they can take charge of it and do it at relative leisure rather than in a queue.

The departure point is from Browns Boathouse, Elvet Bridge which is behind the Prince Bishop Shopping Centre, so you're nice and close to retail and other facilities too. Bonus!
