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 show a selection of routes our customers enjoy, 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 show, or any of the weekend routes - just take it steady, and find your own stopping places. There are plenty of turning points ('winding holes') marked in the guides on the boat.
Distances and times shown are for the return trip. Information we provide about specific waterways or suggested routes is for general reference only. Please see more about route availability.
Midweek breaks go from 1pm Monday to 9am Friday.
All short breaks are out and back from Sowerby Bridge.
Short breaks can be taken with any of these boats.
