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

Wet well organised and very good Yorkshire sence of humour all along the canal trip. Well worth the money and only £1.25 for a cuppa! Fabulous. Would highly recommend

A delightful way to spend an hour in Skipton. We both like Dave Spikey’s commentary. A good mix of information and humour

Great fun, nice boat, had bar for coffee, drinks and snacks. Smooth and chilled ride.

It was fun going through the locks. And the commentary was funny and interesting

Relaxing, comfortable, educational, pleasurable. Good weather hoped! Thanks.
