Skipton Certificated Locations

Known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Skipton is the perfect place to base yourself if you wish to partake in all sorts of countryside sports. From cycling to clay pigeon shooting, it’s all available close by.

In the town itself, there is plenty to charm the visitor, from its impressive castle, dating back to the 11th century right through to its quaint high street.

Skipton’s market was started 800 years ago under a charter from King John and is still held on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Visitors can pick up everything from fruit and veg to plants and flowers at this traditional event.
