The local area
Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, Skipton is a town with plenty of history. From the town’s castle which was built towards the end of the 11th century to the historic High Corn Mill which dates back to 1310, there’s lots to discover if you want to explore the local area. The modern town has all the amenities you need, from shops to pubs and nightclubs, as well as fabulous access to swathes of beautiful countryside including the Yorkshire Dales.
Skipton has its own train station which you can use to get to cities such as Leeds and Bradford. Services to both of these cities take around 40 minutes, making Skipton a great place to live if you want to live in a more rural setting and commute to work. There aren’t any motorways very close to town, so you’ll need to use the network of local A-roads to get around, however local towns like Keighley, Ilkley and Bingley are fairly easy to get to, while Leeds Bradford Airport is less than 20 miles away by car.
Skipton has some excellent schools for families with children to take into consideration, including Water Street Community Primary, Christ Church CofE, St Stephen’s Catholic Primary and Greatwood Community Primary. At secondary level Ermysted’s Grammar, Skipton Girls’ High and Upper Wharfedale School are among the best options.
