Skipton Town Council

Welcome to Skipton

Skipton is a great place to visit! Its unique appeal lies in the combination of olde-worlde charm and the hustle and bustle of a busy, thriving market town.

With the historic Market, medieval castle, canal and an unrivalled range of independent shops and nationally recognised high street brands , Skipton provides something for the whole family.

Skipton also sits at the southern end of some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK - and is known rightly as 'The Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales'.

The separate Welcome To Skipton website tells you everything you need to know.
