The River Ouse flows from the edge of the Yorkshire Dales south through the Vale of York to join the River Humber at Goole. Along the way it passes right through the historic city of York. If you visit the River Ouse you'll find you can do wonderful scenic walks around the riverbanks. Try exploring the paths from the Millennium Bridge, Terry Avenue and New Walk or start your riverside adventure from Rowntree Park. The tree-lined New Walk is a one-mile avenue created in the early Georgian era as a genteel walk by the river. Look out too for guided river cruises or self-drive boat hire on the Ouse here.
