Skipton is a vibrant and friendly community. With a market 4 days each week, a monthly farmers' market, numerous festivals and many cultural events, there is always something going on. On the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is prime walking, cycling and climbing territory for active guests.
Skipton has a railway station with connections to Leeds, Bradford and Carlisle. There is a bus station with buses to local villages and towns. Canal boats offer short trips or longer rentals. And for a nostalgic day out, try the steam railways at nearby Embsay or Keighley!
