Fish & Chips Press Release 1

Fish & ‘Ships’ – the new business partnership taking to the river in 2023

City Cruises, the leading provider of sightseeing, dining experiences and private events in York, is excited to announce a new addition to their line-up: the Fish & Chips Cruise.

Departing from the City Centre, guests will be able to enjoy a 90-minute cruise through York and the surrounding countryside while savouring the delicious and award-winning Fish & Chips from Mr Chippy, one of York’s most established Fish & Chip shops.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Mr Chippy to offer visitors to the city an unrivalled Fish & Chips experience in York,” said Chris Pegg, the Commercial & Marketing Manager at City Cruises. “Their commitment to quality and freshness is unmatched, and we know our guests will love the taste and the convenience of enjoying it while seeing the sights of our beautiful city before their very eyes.”

In addition to providing a unique and enjoyable experience for our guests, the Fish & Chips Cruise initiative from City Cruises provides increased custom to a local York business – one of the key pillars of the Good Business Charter that the business signed up to in 2022.

The Fish & Chips Cruise is available for pre-booking only and will run on select dates from February to November. On board, guests will also be able to enjoy a wide range of refreshments available at the on-board bar, background music, and live captain’s commentary.

“I am excited to work with City Cruises to bring the best Fish & Chips in York to the River Ouse”, said Andy Pericleous, Owner of Mr Chippy. “Fish & Chips is a great British tradition and what better way to enjoy it than on a cruise while taking in the beautiful riverside of the city.”

As well as enjoying delicious Fish & Chips, guests on-board will also be supporting the local business community and keeping the tradition of Fish & Chips alive in York.
