Our beautiful canals

It's great to see our beautiful canals filled once more with families enjoying this jewel in Liverpool's crown. There are plenty of accesses to the canal, which is full of nature.

Within minutes of walking from Welington Street you are on the panal. Walk toward the city and you discover the very interesting modern buildings that is making Leeds into such Northern Power House. Walk the other way and even though the trains are close it is a quiet and interesting route.

I walked from leeds city centre to the leeds ring road in two stretches over two warm days. In leeds centre I saw how the city has redeveloped over recent decades with many new apartment complexes. Further out we have the woods, fishermen, joggers and people relaxing in general. It was a very nice couple of walks and much nicer... More

After eating in the Burscough/Ormskirk/Scarisbrick marina my family and I decided to take a stroll along the canal. It was fairly smooth and suitable for a pushchair.

When in Leeds often walk by River Air and canal going from place within the city. I like to walk under the dark arches and across to the Armories museum. Or take a walk across to Wellington Street from Water Lane end. Lots of things to see along the way.

We joined the canal near the back end (new exit) of the Leeds train station and walked along towards Kirkstall Abbey. It was a leisurely stroll and we met some really friendly people and barge operators along the way. The canal locks are fun to watch in operation. There were a couple of moments when cyclists came really close to... More

Try the walk from Saltaire up to the locks, just under 3 miles. Beautiful walk, dragon flies everywhere, ducks quacking and the stunning water staircase at the end of it. And it doesn't cost anything! Great day out!

I arranged for a party to travel up the Leeds Liverpool Canal - there were 25 of us in total, and we all had a thoroughly good afternoon. The sandwiches and cream tea which we had ordered were lovely, all very fresh and the tour up the canal (not guided) was great, some lovely views as you travel through the... More
