Skipton Boat Trips
Discover the hidden side of the UK
Away from the usual walkways and tarmacked roads, a journey down a canal allows you a secret glimpse into a side of the UK unique to its waterways.
Hopping on one of the boats owned by Skipton Boat Trips, you’ll soon understand what we mean.
You might’ve enjoyed a stroll beside a canal before, perhaps the very same one where Skipton Boat Trips operates - the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
But sitting back, with views at one moment of the historic beauty of Skipton surrounding you, before the lush world of the Yorkshire Dales comes into view – you don’t get to experience that every day.
Which tour will you take?
What your adventure looks like on the canal is up to you.
There are plenty of experiences to decide between, from a one-hour cruise where you get to sit back and watch the countryside roll by – to something a little more extravagant.
Whether it’s the Evening Dining Cruise (be that the three-course menu or award-winning Yorkshire fish and chips), afternoon tea, or a hearty Sunday Roast – Skipton Boat Trips like to put on a feast for their passengers.
A Sunday roast is a momentous occasion as it is, but when you tie that in with views of the Yorkshire Dales stretching away beside you – somehow that mouthful of roast potatoes and stuffing gets even better!
Aye aye, captain
Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more private? An outing for the whole family maybe?
With six and a half hours and 17 miles of canal to explore – how does hiring a boat for the day sound?
Steer your way down the canal, and we’re sure if you’re bringing along the little ones, you’ll spend most of your time sitting in the captain’s chair as they give you a helping hand to navigate the way.
You’ll leave the dock with all the knowledge and skills you need to safely drive the boat, and if you pre-order food to go, then you’ll have some delicious snacks for your day’s outing on the water.
Time to get exploring!
The whole trip, and in fact whatever experience you go for, you’re surrounded by a peace that only comes with being on the water.
The gentle sounds of lapping waves roll into the quiet noises of the nature and wildlife beside you – stilling your mind.
So how about it? Fancy a peaceful adventure discovering the beauty of North England?
Whether you’re sitting down at a table full of delicious food or simply watching the countryside pass you by - it all starts in Skipton.
