Apperley Bridge Marina

A purpose built marina, part of a prestigious waterfront development, offering quality moorings on the picturesque Leeds Liverpool Canal between Leeds and Bingley.

{{{0}}}

Located just off the A658 Harrogate Road, Apperley Bridge Marina is well placed for access to Rail and Road links and even Air Transport (Leeds Bradford Airport is only 15 minutes away) and is within easy walking distance of the local supermarkets, banks and other essential services. Approximately ten pubs in the vicinity cater for every taste and together with local eateries provide food for every occasion.

The Leeds Liverpool Canal provides for a wealth of spectacular cruising and is not subject to the vagaries of water level experienced on some river navigations.

Take an out and back trip through the famous Bingley five rise locks up to Skipton and beyond for a short break, or a trip ‘over the hill’ into Lancashire or even a longer journey as part of a Northern ‘ring’. Apperley Bridge is the ideal starting point for a canal trip and a nice place to come home to!
