Skipton is the 'gateway' to the magnificent Yorkshire Dales for thousands of visitors from all over the world. The broad, tree-lined high street leads up to the church, behind which you see the impressive front of the 900-year-old castle and Skipton Woods.
The high street is home to the town's famous market, with its many varied and interesting stalls, and also numerous independent, specialist and high street shops. Wander down the many alleyways or 'ginnels' to savour the town's history and character. Explore the side streets where you will find individual shops, cafés and restaurants. Visit the canal area with boat trips, marina footpaths and picnic areas.
At the head of Skipton's bustling high street is one of the most complete and best-preserved medieval castles in England, Skipton Castle. Visitors can explore every corner of this impressive, history-rich castle, which withstood a three-year siege during the Civil War.
