Skipton Castle is over 900 years old. You can explore the Castle and grounds at your leisure it’s steeped in stories and history something for all ages and just a two minute walk from us. Skipton Castle Woods is just next to the castle and is a beautiful walk to take and don’t forget your camera a variety of wildlife and wicker sculptures for you to spot.
Lots of things to see and do
Canal trips walk or sail bookings made down by the canal basin.
Local pubs all offer something different; from the Real Ales of the Woolly Sheep, the retro Sound Bar where you can relive the vinyl, to the upmarket VSQ Gin Bar Alexander’s Bar & Kitchen. A personal favourite of mine is The Albion found on Otley Street around the corner, with a fabulous Heated Beer Garden, Pub Quiz Night and live music occasionally. So something for everybody.
Skipton also has its own old time cinema called the Plaza, it only has one screen but have a see what’s playing it’s a great visit for all the family.
Plenty for the kids too, with Aireville Park and Swimming Pool within walking distance featuring it’s own Skateboard area.
Billy Bobs Ice Cream parlour and country play area is great fun for all the family.
There is a Matrix Super Bowl and American Pool complex nearby.
There are also a number of Working Farms locally for you to visit, with various activities and events going on.
