ANOTHER FANTASTIC DAY OUT THAT TAKES SOME BEATING
Some people say it’s how peaceful they feel as lush green Yorkshire dales drift by on our gentle canal cruises. But everyone agrees it’s the heroic efforts of our thoughtful crew that really charms them back.
In ten years of boat trips we’ve helped lots of satisfied people put the fun back into planning their perfect day out. So place your Skipton canal trip in our capable hands. We take extra care before, during and after your booking to make everyone’s experience more enjoyable especially yours.
The canal itself is Britain’s longest, at 127 miles, and was originally used for transporting coal, stone, cloth and other cargo after its completion in 1816.
Of course the canal’s busy industrial heyday has now passed, but the Leeds-Liverpool is still enjoyed by thousands as a brilliant way of exploring the area, reliving the past and relaxing as the world passes by.

Skipton, ‘The Gateway to the Dales’ and winner of the prestigious ‘2009 Great High Street of the Year award’. A wonderful historic market town situated in North Yorkshire, right in the heart of beautiful scenery.
It’s not hard to see why Skipton is such a popular tourist destination – with the superbly preserved 900 year old medieval Skipton Castle, famous open-air Skipton market, spectacular limestone cliffs at Malham to the West, celebrated beauty of Bolton Abbey to the East, and of course the Leeds-Liverpool Canal passing right through the centre.
