Take a Romantic Walk Alongside the River Ouse, York

Even though York is quite a bustling and busy city, there is always an opportunity to escape the madness and take a romantic stroll down by the river.

The River Ouse is conveniently located close enough to the city centre that it is easily accessed by foot if you happen to be in the shopping area or near the train station. There are also plenty of places to park if you come specifically for this purpose. It is a very tranquil walk, so suits a romantic stroll, hand in hand with your loved one, perfectly. Not only are there boats to spot going up and down all the time, there are also ducks to feed, benches to rest on, and photos to take.

The bridges going across this river are something really special so I recommend crossing over a few times to get a decent vantage point and take some shots from a different angle.

If you walk along the river heading out of town, you reach the very impressive Millennium Bridge and just off one side of this, a lovely park, which is a great place to treat your loved one to an ice cream. There are also little pubs and bars all along the riverside to stop for a drink if the sunshine gets too much (not likely up North!).

This is a great place to go for a walk and it has a very romantic feel to it, especially as the sun is setting in the early evening giving everything a lovely golden glow. Autumn is the perfect time to visit this area as all the leaves of the willow trees hanging down alongside the river banks will be turning and glowing in the sunshine. I can’t wait to visit the area in a month or so when this happens.
