Lovely place to walk along and see how developments have taken place. Obviously helps if it's sunny. Good bars along the way.

We walked along the Canal in Canal. It was a very nice experience. The canal is wonderful and it is possible to visit and undestand its surrounding towns and green areas from a different point of view. We met many people jogging and going home, after work, by bycicle. Next time we absolutely want to visit the area by bike... More

Was it that we were lucky with our stay in Leeds or was it that walking down the canals and observing life on the canals was just a wonderful experience. The weather was fantastic. Everything was perfect. It was wonderful watching how the locks were used, the skill with which they were used and a real sense of history. This... More

It is a very nice place to go for a walk or run. Initially it is a bit industrial, but after a mile or so the surroundings become distinctly rural and very charming. I was lucky to see some barges passing through the manually operated lock gates.

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
