Skipton is a lively market town in North Yorkshire that sits just south of the Yorkshire Dales national park, and is often referred to as the gateway to the yorkshire dales.
Skipton frequently appears on lists of happiest places to live in the UK AND did actually hold the title in 2017; however if you’re not ready to up sticks and move to North Yorkshire then Skipton is still a fantastic place to go for a day trip.
In this video we will share a suggested itinerary based on our own recent day out. We will show you Skipton Castle, Skipton market, Holy Trinity Church, Skipton Castle Woods and what you can do around the canal.
