What else is on?

Bite-sized history and humour that's ready when you are!


The best sixty minutes of rib-tickling historic escapism you’ll find in Skipton. Our canal trip promises you a guided tour that’s fun whatever the weather with the finest countryside views you can get without moving your feet.

Your guide for the canal tour is award-winning comedian Dave Spikey of Phoenix Nights and 8 Out of 10 Cats fame. With his characteristic Northern patter, Dave takes you on a whistle-stop tour of Skipton and canal history that’s refreshingly different to your average commentary.

Above the jokes and laughter, you’ll hear points of interest and fascinating stories of how the Leeds & Liverpool canal delivered the lifeblood of the industrial revolution through Yorkshire. There’s food and drink on board too so it’s a fun twist on your lunchtime break.
