Having visited the Royal Armouries museum we took a boat on this canal. The place and the canal have a lot of history as part of the industrial revolution. We also saw how the lock system works - a miniature Panama canal in action.

Walked along the towpath from Gargrave to Skipton about 4/5 miles easy walking but nice to see all the canal boats making there way up or down the canal worth a visit.

Walked along the canal many times. It's very peaceful and picturesque. It's relatively flat so makes it easy walking for all fitness levels. Would highly recommend. It's also a good place to bring your dog for a walk.

We have walked many parts of this great canal which links 2 of the biggest Cities of northern England. The tow paths are obviously easier to walk on in the drier weather and in the main are clean. The actual canal water seems to be...More

As the name suggests, the Leeds and Liverpool canal connects these two major northern cities, but its so much more than just an old transport route. Start in the city centre at Granary Wharf's many bars and restaurants and walk, run or cycle west along...More

Lovely ride. I'd do it again. Parts of it after Liverpool are a bit more of a dirt track so not really suitable for road bikes but the 20 mile into Leeds is a fantastic track to cycle. So it was s varied, a hybrid...More
