Walking holiday on Leeds and Liverpool Canal with Let's Go Walking
Skipton on walking holiday on Leeds and Liverpool Canal
Online booking available!
Enjoy a self-guided walking holiday on the 127 miles of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal Towpath. Leaving Leeds the canal visits picturesque villages in the Yorkshire Dales, crosses the Pennines and passes through East Lancashire before reaching Liverpool. The Leeds and Liverpool Canal is the longest single canal in Britain built by a single company. On this English self-guided walking holiday you hike through some of the highlights of Britain's industrial heritage as it meanders its way via Skipton, Burnley, Blackburn and Wigan, although you hardly notice the metropolis on this quiet corridor of calm that is the canal.
The Leeds and Liverpool Canal walking trail is clearly way-marked to provide reassurance on your walking holiday in Northern England and is a great introduction to walking holidays in UK.

Bingley 5 Rise Locks on walking holiday on Leeds and Liverpool Canal
This canal towpath can be walked in two weeks of 12 days walking and 13 nights, or split into two weeks each of 6 days walking and 7 nights. Walking on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal towpath is a great way to explore the diverse waterway environment.

The canal was built in the late 1700's to transport raw materials such as coal, limestone, wool and manufactured goods such a textiles and cloth to the growing port of Liverpool, gateway to the Irish Sea and the Americas.
The hiking route is a great first walking holiday as it is fairly easy walking and offers a wealth of interesting places to visit en-route.

This is a popular walking tour, so we have carefully selected comfortable accommodation to ensure you are well rested each night after a busy day hiking and site-seeing.
