Just barged in …

There is no longer any commercial traffic on the Ouse, unless you count this floating café, but leisure craft bring a splash of colour to the river. Narrowboats, as these slender barges are called, are often tied up at this point, at the bottom of Museum Gardens, making an attractive summer scene.


  1. Could be one way to spend a holiday. Boating along the Ouse.

  2. Pleasant looking scene. I could spend an afternoon lunching along the Ouse!

  3. I love these boats - I wonder if they feel a bit vulnerable on the River Ouse? It's so wide compared to a canal.
