Skipton is a splendid market town known as the “Gateway to the Dales”. The town still keeps its medieval layout, dominated by the magnificent castle, parish church, and traditional high street market place with alleys and covered passages. Today, these are pedestrian areas packed with fascinating shops and boutiques, inns and courtyards. The town also boasts many pubs, cafés and shops along with a vibrant night life and some world-famous festivals such as Yarndale and the Skipton Puppet Festival. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal in heart of Skipton offers easy walking routes in and out of the town. Canal boats can be hired for day trips, and on the May Bank Holiday, there is The Waterways Festival. Skipton Castle was built in the late eleventh century. It is one of the most complete and best preserved medieval castles in the country. The town also boasts the excellent Craven Museum.
