Places to eat & drink in Skipton.

For centuries an important centre of the wool trade, Skipton was settled by sheep farmers in the 7th century and grew in prosperity once the main Leeds-Liverpool Canal reached Airedale. Today it relies largely on visitors and has much to boast about. Skipton Castle, for example, is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Britain and rears up behind the fine, part-14th century Holy Trinity Church. Although the castle largely dates to the 14-17th centuries, one Norman gateway has survived. Among its treasures are a huge banqueting hall, a dungeon and a room decorated with seashells.

Parcevall Hall Gardens, at nearby Skyreholme, offer 16 acres of magnificent hillside scenery as well as superb views of Wharfedale while Craven Museum gives an intimate insight into the natural and social history of the area.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Skipton or surrounding areas.
