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.

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

We had a riverboat ride on the Leeds - Liverpool Canal. It was very relaxing to just watch the world go by.

Lovely walk along the historic canal bank, spoiled only by selfish cyclists who insist on riding way too quickly on a busy towpath. Enjoy your stroll, but keep a lookout for the Bradley Wiggins wannabes!

Rented bikes for the day and we rode along the canal up to Kirkstall Abbey. Fun way to spend a few hours meandering along the canal.

we had an absolutely brilliant weeks holiday on this canal. and although in total we only covered 35 miles in that week it felt like we had gone hundreds. the locks are so much fun, but hard work. the weather was not always in our favour, so the only advice i can give is pack spare clothes, so that you...
