Skipton

Skipton

The market town of Skipton sits on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, which make a striking backdrop to the town. Skipton’s hidden history can be glimpsed in the narrow sidestreets, ‘ginnels’ (alleys), traditional pubs and colourful canal basin.

The Leeds & Liverpool Canal runs through Skipton, with the Springs Branch running east from the mainline to Skipton Castle. The castle is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in England, and sits on a hilltop overlooking the tree-lined High Street.
