Visit Skipton and explore the incredible charm of this historic Dales market town.
A town where history and culture, tradition and hospitality come together all year round to welcome visitors and share the Skipton story.
Enjoying pride of place at the top of the High Street is the iconic Skipton Castle, over 900 years old.

If you prefer, enjoy a boat ride and see the town from a more leisurely angle.
The incredible surrounding countryside makes Skipton a gateway to the dales and a perfect base for exploring the southern part of the Yorkshire Dales.
Whatever you do, Skipton will delight visitors old and young alike.
