  • West took a barge costing £4 per person, for a 30 minute trip. It was very good, with views along the canal. Well worth doing. There was 10 people on the barge we were on which was full. Give it a go.  more »

  • We went on this trip as part of an organised coach holiday and I can honestly say it was one of the highlights of the holiday! The boat is spacious and comfortable and large windows so you can enjoy the views! Included was a cuppa and biscuit which all added to the charm! The staff were very friendly too. There was an initial commentary then they played music. My mother complained that she couldn't hear the later commentary because everyone was enjoying themselves and chatting so I don't know if there needs to be an announcement that there is some more commentary coming or optional headphones perhaps? Lovely - thoroughly recommend it. Make time to look round the delightful town too and don't miss Freddie Truman's statue either down by the canal! 😊
  • Relaxing way to spend a hot Sunday
  • Nice little canal trip. Funny commentary .free tea or coffee and a biscuit.
  • A very pleasant surprise for my 70th birthday. Sunday lunch on a two hour casual cruise along the Leeds Liverpool Canal. We were a party of 14, and did not know what to expect food wise. We need not have worried, We had Roast Beef, Roast and boiled potatoes,oodles of seasonal veg's and hot gravy. More then enough to go round, and nicely served. The Apple pie and Ice cream to follow was superb. We were not alone, the boat was full, and everyone seemed to have as good a time as we did. Definitely having a re-visit soon. The locally brewed beer wasn't bad either, the well stocked bar catered for all our needs. Full marks from our party. p.s. Not forgetting the Yorkshire Pud
  • Haven't been on canal boat yet but i'm sure it will be great really looking forward to it
