This is a view from Ouse Bridge looking out over the River Ouse and King's Staith (a cobbled quay on the north bank of the river). King's Staith was a major quayside and important centre for trade until the 19th century. However, it is now the main riverside leisure space in the city. Wooden tables encourage people to congregate outside the public houses and pleasure boats also moor here. The Staith retains its historic appearance with attractive stone setts. The King's Arms pub (the whitewashed building on the left) was built early in the 17th century and may originally have been a custom house or a warehouse. The inn sign depicts King Richard III who grew up at Middleham Castle and as Duke of Gloucester, was a regular visitor to York. Frequently flooded when the Ouse bursts its banks, there are flood markers on a board in the bar.
