Skipton Canal Basin
Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Skipton, North Yorkshire
The canal basin in Skipton is a busy part of this ancient market town. Traditional and modern boats can be seen on this stretch of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal which threads its way through the centre of Skipton. Visitors can take boat trips on the canal, walk along the network of canal towpaths or simply sit and watch the colourful narrow-boats go by. Once a year, the canal basin is the venue for the Skipton Waterway Festival, the largest annual meeting of canal boats in the north of England.
