Parking is usually available but the town is very busy on market days, so allow plenty of time. The walk behind the Castle is great and you can always stroll along the Leeds Liverpool canal and watch the barges come and go.
One of the best preserved castles in England and has a superb self-guided tour. There's also a teashop!

“Situated on cobbles right in the heart of the Skipton is the outdoor market, voted the UK’s Best Outdoor Market in 2017. Foodies visiting the region will not want to miss out on what this market has to offer. Its history dates back to medieval times, when King John gave a Royal Charter for a market to be held on the High Street. This royal consent is still in effect today and has transformed over time. The market operates Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday generally from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm. You can find locally produced fruit, cheese, sweets, as well as meats and takeaway food.”
“Alexander's is a new European inspired bar and kitchen, set in a beautiful period building at the top of Skipton High Street. ”
