Skipton in the Dales. Saturday 30th July
Located on the cobbled stones of the High Street in the vicinity of a medieval castle, Skipton Market is the flagship of Yorkshire’s markets, with a unique heritage and friendly atmosphere. Its history dates back to medieval times, when a royal charter granted consent to the owners of Skipton Castle to hold a fair on Skipton High Street.
The charter still holds true today, and every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday the streets come alive with one the UK’s biggest markets, where locals sell their wares. It’s a real shopper’s delight! You’re certain to grab a bargain as you peruse the variety of stalls, selling everything from clothing, sweets and jewellery to leather goods, flowers and chocolates. Taste samples of the finest local produce or pick up a unique gift for a family member or friend.
It’s prime location in the heart of Skipton means the town’s other attractions are right on your doorstep too. Wander the quaint alleys and you will find a fantastic range of quirky boutiques mixing it with famous High Street brands where you can indulge in more retail therapy.
