What to expect

This is the best 60 minutes of rib-tickling historic escapism you can find in Skipton!

Your guide for this canal tour is the award-winning comedian Dave Spikey of Phoenix Nights and 8 Out of 10 Cats. With his characteristic Northern patter, Dave will take you on a whistle-stop tour of Skipton and will share canal history that’s refreshingly different from your average commentary.

Above the jokes and laughter, you'll hear points of interest and fascinating stories of how the Leeds and Liverpool Canal delivered the lifeblood of the industrial revolution through Yorkshire. There’s food and drink onboard, too, so it’s a fun twist on your lunchtime break.

This lively canal trip proves you don’t have to let planning or nasty weather get in the way of a good time!
