Perfect for avoiding traffic, in the quietest and most beautiful way you can be right in the city centre, from Kirkstall or the countryside beyond. Or on a sunny day, you can travel right up to Saltaire, and see the antiques and craft shops of a picture perfect Yorkshire town.

Love walking along the canal - beautiful scenery, next to the water. THe only thing that spoils it is that some of the cyclists that use it are inconsiderate towards pedestrians.

Surrounded by cafe and hotels Granary Wharf has a daily variety of boats from around the 2500 miles of Inland Waterways and most boosters happy to chat about their experiences. 2016 is 30th year oh Leeds & Liverpool Canal so many special events.

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.
