Skipton is a small but significant market town in North Yorkshire at the southern tip of the Yorkshire Dales.
Skipton Castle is a Norman castle in the centre of the town built in 1090. With a dungeon, kitchen and bedchamber still in tact, the castle is an incredibly well-preserved example of early-Norman fortified architecture in the north of England.
Bolton Abbey is the site of a ruined Augustinian priory near Skipton. In 1539 the priory was closed by Henry VIII during the infamous dissolution of England’s monasteries. With stunning green surrounds on the banks of the river, Bolton Abbey is a key heritage site in the Skipton area.
