Skipton: 1-Hour Canal Cruise

1. Skipton: 1-Hour Canal Cruise

Welcome aboard the best 60 minutes of historic escapism you can find in Skipton. Enjoy a lively canal trip that proves you don't have to let planning or nasty weather get in the way of a good time. Keep your camera ready to capture the picturesque countryside scenery.  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 shares canal history that’s refreshingly different from your average commentary. Above the jokes and laughter, hear points of interest and fascinating stories of how the Leeds and Liverpool Canal delivered the lifeblood of the Industrial Revolution through Yorkshire. Food and drink are available onboard too for a fun twist on your lunchtime break.

What people are saying about Skipton

Loved the trip, friendly staff. The only thing that let it down on our trip were some I go passengers who talked through a lot of the commentary. It would have been improved slightly if the speaker above our seat was working. I highly recommend the hour trip. One suggestion would be give clearer guidance on where the pick up point is. We were not the only ones looking bewildered trying to find it. Thanks for the trip, overall we enjoyed it and would come again.
