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 were lucky enough to have sunny weather whilst visiting Leeds for a couple of days and spent a few hours sitting and walking along the canals. Lovely a peaceful watching the canal boats moving up and down through the locks.

We stayed at the Doubletree Hilton for the weekend to see family, and I had a amazing view of the canal. Loved watching the boats from my window! I wish we had actually got to visit it in person though.
