People come from afar to visit Skipton which is brimming over with history and natural beauty. The historic cobbled high street has recently hosted the Tour de France with the 900 year castle and ancient church providing a wonderful back drop. The church has been a neighbour to the castle for over 1000 years and is a thriving part of the community today. This formidable stone castle is one of the best preserved in Britain and a great place to visit with families at any time of the year. Behind the castle is a lovely walk through ancient woods reached by pathways along the canal and castle ramparts, you can see a wide variety of plants and lots of wildlife such as kingfishers, bats and deer.
Back on the main street there a fabulous mix of independent shops as well as well-known brands. As you would imagine the choice of traditional pubs, cafes and restaurants is vast to enjoy locally produced food and drink. There’s a popular market every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday with just about everything you could wish for and in the Town Hall on Saturday there’s very often a Collectors Market. The Town Hall is also home to the Craven Museum and Gallery and also acts as a Concert Hall with regular productions.
There are regular boat trips along the canal, narrow boats take you 30 minutes along the canal, a real chance to relax and enjoy the scenery. Boats can be hired for days out and are a great way to experience this lovey part of Yorkshire. Garden lovers will love nearby Parcevall Hall Gardens in the heart of Wharfedale, 24 acres of formal and woodland gardens rising up a hillside with wonderful views, a real hidden gem.
Walkers can head off to the Dales and follow rivers and valleys or venture high up to the peaks with panoramic views. Cyclists can set off on famous routes lined by dry stone walls and enjoy fantastic scenery and hidden away cafes to enjoy a refreshing cup of Yorkshire tea.
