Took a walk along the canal path. Wonderful, on a cold but sunny day. Good to see the barges, some of them permanent homes, and the locals who inhabit them. They keep the place tidy and clean for strollers like us. Great!

This canal at over 120 miles long is the longest in UK. It was built over 200 years ago and is a linear history in itself. It also passes many historic sites along its length. The towpath provides great walking opportunities with super wildlife everywhere. Well worth a visit anywhere along its length.

You get to see a really different side to Leeds walking by the canal, and it is an excellent opportunity to take in the historic sights of the vintage buildings and warehouses that you just can't see from the city centre. The bridges are all excellent en route also, you have the state of the art new steel footbridges mixed... More

Enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine along the banks of this canal. Despite being virtually in the middle of a city, the place is incredibly peaceful, with lots of bird life both in the trees & on the still water. Some of the cyclists could do with being a little more considerate, but that doesn't detract from the overall... More

We often have a bike ride from lydiate to Liverpool and have to say it's so peaceful and the scenery is a real delight. Our little one loves seeing all the boats and ducks.

You can go and walk a mile or two miles and always enjoy the stillness of the water and relax. Although I am a cyclist myself, the countless cyclists bombing along the towpaths do get annoying.

Nowt wrong with the old ferry boat although it could do with a bit of an upgrade. Lots of old industrial buildings to see but picturesque it ain't. Commentary was good . Choose a sunny day if possible otherwise it is a bit grim.

We have traveled this canal a couple of times and although parts leave a bit to be desired the majority is great passing through some stunningly beautiful countryside and interesting history. Well worth the effort especially with Liverpool Docks at the end.

The tow paths on the Leeds and Liverpool canal have been improved over the years., They are ideal for cycling as the route just goes on and on, its nice and flat too.
