There's no faster way to slow down than a short break canal holiday on the Yorkshire waterways. Whether you go up the valley or down, you will find attractive canal scenery, welcoming pubs and plenty to see and do.
We suggest a selection of routes, but you don't have to follow them. Set your own pace, and do more or less, just as you choose.
In a midweek break, you can do one of the routes we suggest, or any of the weekend routes - just take it steady, and find your own stopping places - there are guides on the boat.
Weekend breaks go from 2pm Friday to 9am Monday.
Midweek breaks go from 2pm Monday to 9am Friday.
All short breaks are out and back from Sowerby Bridge.
Mileages and times (for guidance) are for the return trip. Short breaks can be taken with any of these boats.
