Visit the picture-perfect market town of Skipton for the day. Visitors are drawn in by the town’s beautiful position on the Leeds-Liverpool canal and its cute cobbled streets with plenty of places to eat and drink. The market features on the high street of this quintessential town every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Visitors for the day should certainly see Skipton Castle, which at 900 years old, stands proudly as one of the best-preserved famous medieval castles in England.

As a gateway into the Yorkshire Dales, Skipton is magical at any time of the year. Book a boat trip along the canal, armed with a pork pie lunch from the famous Stanforth’s Butchers close to Skipton Castle. There are plenty of spots to choose from for a coffee or meal in the town’s many cafes and pubs. A 10-minute drive away is Bolton Abbey, the Yorkshire home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
