We all associate Skipton as a market town but not everyone is aware of the town’s central role in the busy waterways of the industrial revolution. Hop on a narrow boat to gain a deeper understanding of this rich heritage experience Skipton from the Leeds to Liverpool Canal.

From short skippered trips, day hire boats, afternoon tea on the water or evening dinners, stepping on board a boat is a lovely way to enhance your time in Skipton. You can also hire narrow boats out for holidays over night with full boat handling training given to complete novice boaters.
