Having recenlty purchase Hybrid bikes for myself and my partner, we have only just found the time, during the lovely summer weather which we have had, to go on a cycle ride. We mounted the bikes onto our car and drove out towards Skipton, parked up and rode along the canal to East Marton, which was lovely, stunning views across... More

We were treated dreadfully, paid the same as a 5 star hotel for 3 nights £851, and we felt ripped off. The boat was shabby, staff did not show us in, didn't ebven know how to open the boat. instructions were given very quickly, basically we felt like they couldn't be bothered with us! Then bridge number 199 broke so... More

Walking the dog wow.the best ever. Little cafe at Rodley wonderful as is the one at five rise locks Bingley. The converted boat at Saltaire is a bit scruffy. The Abbey and the Railway are also good watering holes. Walkers, dog walkers, joggers BEWARE OF CYCLISTS they do go a tad fast and we can't be expected to walk etc... More

Great to walk besides the Leeds-Liverpool canal. Watching the barges navigate the locks is always interesting. Great to see all the old industrial buildings (many now apartments) by the canal

We took an hour's cruise along the canal from Skipton. It was a hot day and so a restful hour with peaceful views was welcome. There were a number of boats on this part of the canal which added to the interest.

Take your time on the towpath or on the water. As it passes through Leeds, you can see the historical development of industry and the new development built to complement the old.

Hired the "Caraway" 59 feet narrow boat, from Snaygill boats. We travelled the L + L from Snaygill (just SE of Skipton) through the mile long Foulridge tunnel, stopping at Skipton, Gargrave and East Marton. Superb scenery, weather and boat. Highly recommend! But be prepared for a lovely slow pace of life.

Snaygill have two day boats, been on both. Same layout with all you could wish for. Fridge, toilet, sink, etc. Plenty of room to walk about. Viewing from front and rear of the boat. Instructions on departure given on boat handling and controls. Laura and her team do a wonderful job and nothing too small to sort out. Parking is... More
