Yorkshire and North East

Your everyday getaway. The canals and rivers of Yorkshire & North East offer a simple, relaxing retreat from the hubbub of daily life.

So take a breath, and take a closer look at the waterways on your doorstep. Covering the southern dales of Yorkshire and reaching as far as the River Tees, our diverse canals and rivers link major urban cities with rural tranquillity.

We're not talking just every now and then on a day out to of our hundreds of listed buildings or scheduled ancient monuments. But, every day on your walk to work, your cycle to school or your moment of mindfulness. Support your local team as we make life better by water.
