Ilkley is a spa town located in northern England in the western portion of the county of Yorkshire. A charming settlement with Victorian character, Ilkley is known for the nearby Ilkley Moor and the folk song named after it.
Ilkley Moor is a scenic area close to the town that rises to over 400m above sea level. A popular area for hikers and walkers, the moor is the inspiration for a folk anthem that has become the adopted theme of Yorkshire. Named “On Ilkla Moor Baht ‘at”, the lyrics to the song are written in Yorkshire dialect which to some outsiders can be undecipherable.
Ilkley park and Riverside gardens is a green area in the town that is a key component of Ilkley recreational life. With an idyllic setting astride the River Wharfe, the park attracts walkers, runners and anglers as well as local families. Each spring and summer, the park becomes covered in wildflowers, attracting enthusiasts from across the town.
Throughout the area, from East Holmes Fields to Darwin Gardens, Floom’s Ilkley flower delivery covers the entire town.
